An undisputed classic and still one of the most loved, acclaimed and popular films of all-time THE GODFATHER feels just as fresh and groundbreaking today as it did in 1972. It made Al Pacino a star, it cemented Marlon Brando as the acting force of generation and shed light on the unique and overflowing talent of Copppola.

Over the years the film is mostly known in pop culture for Brando's puffy cheeks, the immense bloodshed throughout and that infamous horse's head. What shouldn't be forgotten, though, is that Coppola and writer Mario Puzo crafted one of the most emotional and complex studies of family, loyalty and morality ever put on film.

Whether it's your first time or fiftieth experiencing THE GODFATHER you can't help but be moved by one of the greatest films ever made.

"One of the most brutal and moving chronicles of American life ever designed within the limits of popular entertainment." -Vincent Canby, The New York Times

"Overflowing with life, rich with all the grand emotions and vital juices of existence, up to and including blood." -Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
