Good news for fans of GF I and II (only). HBO will be showing next Sunday (Jan 17) the entire Godfather Epic (usually called the Godfather Saga). The old TV version with the two movies spliced together in chronological order. The real prize are the extra scenes. Several are fairly illuminating. Unfortunately, it was for network TV in the 70s so there was some censorship. I don’t know if this version restores those parts.
Note that the Saga has appeared on cable from time to time, but in a shortened form. Looking forward to it.
It does not appear to be on the list of usual HBO endless repeats, so be sure to catch it the first time.
Watch Genco’s deathbed scene! The surprising origins of the Godfather Theme! Clemenza eating lunch! (Well, maybe not that one.)
