The Family That Started It All
The movie, The Godfather [DVD GOD], based on the book of the same name by Mario Puzo [F PUZ], was released on this day in 1972. That's 45 years ago! I'll bet many of our more mature readers will remember going to the movies to see it. It was a smash hit, and went on to spawn The Godfather: Part II [DVD GOD] in 1974 and The Godfather: Part III [DVD GOD] in 1990.
The prequel to the novel, The Godfather, was written by Edward Falco and published five years ago as The Family Corleone [AB/CD FAL, also eAudio].
The Corleone family started the whole mafia family craze that also included the movie, GoodFellas [DVD GOO] and the television series The Sopranos [DVD TV SERIES SOP].
