Have you ever been surprised to find out a film was based on a book? Film Friday is a weekly feature that spotlights films that were adapted from books.
For today’s Film Friday, I decided to showcase The Godfather! Based on Mario Puzo’s novel (of the same name), the film quickly became a box office hit. Marlon Brando would go on to win an Oscar for Best Actor and the film would become Best Picture.
Synopsis: The aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son (-IMDB).
Don Corleone: You talk about vengeance. Is vengeance going to bring your son back to you? Or my boy to me?
The Godfather (1972)
