Date Night: “The Godfather”

So where were you in 1972 when this masterpiece was winning the Best Picture, Best Actor and Best Screenplay Oscars and beginning to top most lists of Best Film of All Time?

This is the epic tale of a 1940’s New York Mafia family, led by patriarch Don Vito Corleone, and their struggle to protect their empire from rival families as the leadership switches from the father to his youngest son.

It was nominated for 11 Oscars, winning Marlon Brando his Best Actor award, which he famously refused to accept.  Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall all were nominated for Best Supporting Actor and Francis Ford Coppola for Best Director. It was followed by sequels The Godfather Part II (1974) and The Godfather Part III (1990).

The Godfather is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in world cinema and one of the most influential, especially in the gangster genre. It was selected for preservation in the U.S. National Film Registry of the Library of Congress in 1990, being deemed “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

See it on the big screen one more time.
