GODFATHER, THE

45th Anniversary

With 11 Oscar ® nominations, including three Supporting Actor nods for Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall, and wins for Best Picture, Screenplay and Actor for Marlon Brando's iconic Don Corleone, Francis Ford Coppola's darkly sympathetic family drama transformed the way we think about the mafia and America. It's a paternalistic, macho and brutal world, and a testament to two fine actresses that the secondary stories centered on the women of the Corleone family — long-suffering daughter Connie (Talia Shire) and outsider-married-in Kay (Diane Keaton) — are as compelling as the struggle for supremacy among New York's Five Families. DIR/SCR Francis Ford Coppola; SCR Mario Puzo, from his novel; PROD Albert S. Ruddy. U.S., 1972, color, 175 min. In English, Italian and Latin with English subtitles. RATED R
