If you were sitting in a dark room, could not see a thing and "THE GODFATHER-WALTZ" started to play, you would immediately associate this with this collection, and you'd by correct...probably one of the most recognizable themes ever written...not to mention the "LOVE THEME FROM THE GODFATHER", so beautiful and haunting had universal appeal, our composer Nino Rota most certainly outdid himself with this score.
Director Francis Ford Coppola's delivers a masterpiece, based on Mario Puzo's best selling book...an outstanding cast even more realized today than then ~ Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Talia Shire, Richard Castellano, John Cazle, Lee Strasberg, Eli Wallach and Sterling Hayden embroiled within "The Godfather Saga", dramatic acting at it's best.
The full-length Audio Commentary by Francis Ford Coppola, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround, Widescreen Enhanced for 16:9 TVs, Closed Captioned, and that's on just the first four discs...on the final disc (Disc 5), "The Godfather Bonus Material" with over three hours of exclusive features highlighting the many Cast Rehersals, Additional Scenes, Documentary on the Making of the Godfather, The Music of the Godfather (featuring Nino Rota and Carmine Coppola) plus other extra's to numerous to mention...but you get the general idea, this is a "film-buffs-treasure"...something that only comes along once in a lifetime, do me a favor...don't pass this up...this DVD Collection is in a CLASS BY ITSELF!
You might want to pick up "The Godfather Trilogy" (SSD-1121) on the Silva America label, would make an excellent companion for your "Godfather DVD Collection", please check out my reviews on amazon.com/music.
