I borrowed this release from my brother and finished watching Godfather II last night and have some observations. Back in the 1990's I purchased a VHS boxed set which was entitled "The Godfather Saga" which contained 3 tapes. The first tape actually starts the story in Sicily and shows the parts from Godfather II in succession so the entire 3 tapes are more or less in chronological order. There are two scenes missing from the DVD release which I found were pretty interesting, if not essential to the story that were absent on the DVD release, but included on my VHS boxed set, both being from Godfather II. These are: A scene which shows the Don Fenucci (Black Hand) charcter getting his throat cut by a street gang, and Michael Corleone having his old bodyguard from Sicily, Fabrizio, killed by a car bomb after he emigrates to the US and opens up a pizza joint. Having these scenes ommitted bummed me out. I know the DVD set is composed of the theatrical releases, but I missed these scenes non-the-less. Any opinions on those that have seen the "Saga" version?
