The Godfather Movies

I neglected my chores this afternoon to watch the Godfather I & Godfather II movies. I’ve seen both of these movies, many many times, but since they are on my list of top 10 movies of all time, I couldn’t resist watching again. I know these movies are filled with violent and illegal acts, but at their core, these movies are about loyalty, friendship and love of family. I could go on and on about these movies, but I’ll just leave you with a few of my favorite quotes:

Don Corleone: “Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than government. It is almost the equal of family. Never forget that…”
***
Michael Corleone: My father’s no different than any other powerful man. Any man who’s responsible for other people, like a Senator, or a President.
Kay Adams: Do you know how naive you sound?
Michael Corleone: Why?
Kay Adams: Senators and Presidents don’t have men killed.
Michael Corleone: Oh. Who’s being naive, Kay?
***
Michael Corleone: “There are many things my father taught me here in this room. He taught me: keep your friends close, but your enemies closer.”

  2. Two or three years ago I watched a video (movie) that featured the godfather as a youth and his rise to power in America. Does anyone have that movie title?
