Timeless Film Classic
Returns To The Big Screen
by Chris Rundquist
In honor of its 25th anniversary,
Paramount Pictures is re-releasing The
Godfather. This cutting edge crime-drama
was first released in 1972, and launched the
film careers of Al Pacino, James Caan,
Robert Duvail, Dtane Keaton, Talia Shire
and others. It was also the highest grossing
movie in history, up to that time, earning
over $100 million in its initial release.
The Godfather was based on the best selling
novel of the same name, written by Mario
Puzo. The book sold over 10 million copies
making it one of the most widely read novels in history. Mario Puzo collaborated with
Francis Ford Coppola to write the screenplay, earning them an Oscar for Best
In all the film earned 10 Academy Award
Nominations, and won three: Best Picture
and Best Actor (Marlon Brando), as well as
Best Screenplay. In 1990, the film was further honored by being selected by the
Library of Congress lo be included in the
National Film Registry.
The re-release differs from the original
only in the soundtrack, which has been digitally remastered from its original monaural
sound into THX stereo. Also, the original
negatives were remastered to retain the original visual feel of the film. However, by
today's standards, the film has more of a
grainy picture than we have become accustomed to.
Make no mistake, The Godfather was, and
still is, an excellent film that should not be
missed. However, as nice as it is to see the
film on the big screen, the video version is
just as compelling and forceful. Unless you
are a film purist, don't rush out to the theater
in fear that you will miss something new.

Oh, there is one thing, though.
You do have to give up being afraid to take care of yourself.
