The Godfather Parts I, II and III are among the best loved and most highly acclaimed movies in the history of cinema. Moving chronologically from Vito Corleone's childhood in Sicily to Michael Corleone's demise in the late 1970s, The Godfather in Pictures collects together for the first time a sumptuous array of posters, magazine covers, behind-the-scenes photographs and costume designs in one beautifully designed volume. The book also contains short features on the role of the real Mafia in the making of the films, the trilogy's cast and crew, and the actors who almost made it (Anthony Quinn and Sir Laurence Olivier were both considered for the role of Don Corleone). As elegantly realized and effortlessly cool as the movies it celebrates, The Godfather in Pictures is a real treasure-trove for all fans of the trilogy, a must-have tribute to the talent and creative vision behind Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece.
