Oscar-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy's never-before-revealed experiences of making The Godfather (1972).
Stayed up until 2am this morning and watched the first 4 (out of 10) episodes. Up there with the very best series that I seen so far this year . If you love a story of Hollywood in the seventies then you will love this show. I couldn't fault anything in THE OFFER. Brilliant in every aspect-acting-directing- screenplay etc..Mostly about Paramount studios and the story behind THE GODFATHER book and eventual planning of making the movie. Gripping all the way. I will watch the 5th episode tonight.No thread on this? This is already out. Anyone has seen it?
If you’re not familiar with Coppola’s commentary on disc for the first film, and if you have access to it, I recommend you listen to it. A miracle the film turned out the way it did.We are loving this mini series. So amazed at the drama and craziness that took place getting this classic movie made!
5 out of 5 for me.
One thing is strange to me. They don't show any direct recreations of the movie scenes. They don't show them not even for 1 second. Why?
I think it's that you can't improve on perfection!
I asked my brother-in-law about this. He said the likely reason is they don't have the legal right to do so.One thing is strange to me. They don't show any direct recreations of the movie scenes. They don't show them not even for 1 second. Why?
