If you LOVE movies and how they're made, get this book. Fascinating insights such as 'how did they shoot the horsehead scene (a real shocker here), what did the subtle insertion of Oranges represent, what was a working, professional Brando like, why was Paramount full of so many schmuck executives, why didn't someone put bullets in their heads like Solazzo & McCluskey got? A terrific insight into making a monster hit movie and how it got "built". GREAT book!

An excellent read for the head!!!!

Counting the front cover and chapter headers cropped from larger photos, there's 139 snapshots in THE GODFATHER LEGACY, most of them behind-the-scenes glimpses.

This minutiae-intense book is primarily for devotees of Francis Coppola's original film. Reading about and seeing snaps of deleted scenes or perusing pages of dialogue that were later rewritten are sure to intrigue these folks. It's doubtful however if anyone else will be interested in how much each antique streetlight cost, or which props were vintage and which repros.

Whether or not one cares the way special effects were achieved, such as the murders of McCluskey, Luca Brasi, Sonny Corleone or Moe Greene, depends on what you think of magicians who reveal how they saw ladies in half or make audience members levitate.

The book is most engaging when it tells the off-camera story of Coppola's many clashes with PARAMOUNT execs and how their interference and penny-pinching made an already enormous job that much more difficult for the young director. Had Paramount prevailed in casting for example, Robert Redford would've played Sonny Corleone. Al Pacino was their last choice for the plum role of Michael, and Coppola had to fight like hell to get final say.

These are common knowledge. Less known perhaps is that Coppola wanted Robert De Niro for the Don's traitorous driver, Paulie Gatto, but in a sort-of ballplayer swap, De Niro's services were offered to and accepted by the producers of THE GANG THAT COULDN'T SHOOT STRAIGHT, a comedy based on Jimmy Breslin's novel. In exchange, Pacino was allowed to escape from a contract his agent had previously signed for that now rather obscure movie.

A lucky break for Al, and us too, as De Niro was thus available to portray Don Corleone as a young man in THE GODFATHER PART II, a masterpiece that just may be the greatest sequel ever made. Yet, only 32 pages of Godfather Legacy's 257 are devoted to it. The story of the often maligned PART III is condensed even further, into 10 pages, all but two of which include half-page photos.

As if they don't exist, we are given nothing on the murders of Don Tommasino, Don Ciccio, Don Altobello or my favorite villian of the series, Joey Zasa. It IS revealed though why Richard Castellano wasn't in the second film or Robert Duvall in the final one. Money was the main reason, but Castellano also demanded that his own writer supply Clemenza's dialogue, an impossible condition for control freak Coppola to accept.

As a real fan of this motion picture trilogy, I enjoyed Harlan Lebo's book, and even slogged through the many pages describing how sets were built and decorated. If you've read right to this point, you're probably prepared to do so, as well.

I was hoping to find out more information on why THE COMPLETE EPIC has never been released on DVD. If its never going to be released then please release ALL THE DELETED FOTAGE on DVD. This is still scenes that are in the EPIC that have never been released on DVD.

I also wanted to see more information aboout "The Godfather: Part III". I know its not very good however I would to of known more about the film and how the cast feels about it.

Told the little known obstacles and how they were overcome to produce a remarkable film.This film was really the spark that was needed to ignite the career of one of my favorite actors-Al Pacino.
A great book - so interesting - really fills in behind-the-scenes of the Godfather Trilogy - and a great price.
