A formula for disaster? No, the makings of one of the greatest films of all time. THE GODFATHER LEGACY explores the fascinating behind-the-scenes intrigue and uproar during the making of all three films: The clashes between Coppola and the studio chiefs during the filming of The Godfather, the pressurized production schedule, and the project's near cancellation; The real story behind the cooperation of the Mafia in the creation of The Godfather; The worldwide acclaim and stunning financial success following the release of The Godfather - a triumph that set the stage for the film industry's renaissance; The production of The Godfather Part II and the rise of Coppola, Al Pacino, and others to the loftiest heights of power in Hollywood; The creation of The Godfather Part III two decades after the original film and the completion of video projects that unified the three films for the first time. Featuring production records, credits, reviews, and interviews with many of the principals involved, THE GODFATHER LEGACY is a rare and vivid peek into the making of three of the most compelling films in Hollywood history. 6 VHS tapes (2 per movie) widescreen version with extras - played only once each !
