"El Padrino" es una novela de género criminal escrita por el escritor italoestadounidense Mario Puzo que originalmente publicó una de las mayores editoriales del país conocida como G. P. Putnam's Sons en 1969. Detalla la historia ficticia de una familia de la mafia siciliana asentada en Nueva York y que está encabezada por Don Vito Corleone, El gran jefe, la cual se convirtió en sinónima de la mafia italiana. Este audio es un extracto de la novela, el capítulo tercero, que cuenta la historia de la llegada de el Padrino (el Don) a América y de como va prosperando su vida y la de su familia en esa tierra llena de oportunidades para un inmigrante siciliano. Nota: El audio tiene una introducción musical de 2 minutos de duración, el resto es todo narración. Espero que los más "exigentes" sepan disculpar o valorar la ambientación sonora.

Nesse Áudio, Joel Paviotti fala sobre o filme “O Poderoso Chefão”, clássico do cinema lançado em 1972 e que se tornou um marco na produção cinematográfica sobre a máfia. Dirigido por Francis Ford Coppola e tendo como base o livro homônimo de Mario Puzo, o filme ficou conhecido por suas cenas marcantes, pela beleza de sua fotografia e pela atuação impecável de Francis Ford Coppola e a brilhante atuação e Marlon Brando e Al Pacino. O filme abriu as portas para o movimento "Nova Hollywood", dando mais liberdade autoral aos diretores e abrindo caminho para uma série de outras obras que abordam a mesma temática. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/iconocast/support
Der Auftakt der legendären Mafiafilm-Trilogie Francis Ford Coppolas nach dem Bestseller von Mario Puzo besticht auch 50 Jahre nach seinem Erscheinen durch seine edle Inszenierung sowie die herausragenden schauspielerischen Leistungen von Größen wie Marlon Brando und Al Pacino, weshalb man dem zu Recht als Meisterwerk geltenden Film die teilweise turbulente Produktionsgeschichte zu keiner Sekunde anmerkt.

This week, we watched all three Godfather films, directed by Francis Ford Coppola, based on the novel by Mario Puzo. Spanning the twentieth century, we see the Coroleones struggle to build and keep their place in the organized crime world, turning against each other and abandoning their moral codes as they attempt to protect the family legacy. 00:00:00 - Intro 00:00:06 - Welcome and banter 00:03:33 - Welcome to Shametember: The Godfather Spoiler free thoughts 00:17:17 - Housekeeping 00:22:20 - The Godfather trilogy spoilers begin here! 01:16:33 - Bingo check-in 01:21:01 - Recommendations 01:27:12 - Pitching what we cover next week 01:34:39 - Outro The Whatnauts present The Review Show, a weekly book club style podcast for all sorts of pop culture.

Paramount adquirió los derechos sobre la novela de Mario Puzo antes incluso de que estuviera terminada, pero muy recelosos, porque una película anterior (Mafia, Martin Ritt, 1968) con Kirk Douglas, Irene Papas o Susan Strasberg, había sido un rotundo fracaso. Aquella película, cuya producción y rodaje estuvo cargado de problemas dio inicio a una de las grandes sagas del cine.

Dana and Tom welcome back returning guest, Braden Ganter, to discuss possibly the greatest sequel movie ever made, The Godfather: Part II (1974): directed and written by Francis Ford Coppola, co-written by Mario Puzo, starring Al Pacino, Robert De Niro, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton, and Lee Strasberg. Plot Summary: The saga of the Corleone family continues with two parallel storylines. The first follows the continuation of Michael Corleone's control of the family and the family's criminal interests. The second, in flashbacks, follows Vito's life from Corleone, Sicily to America and on his journey to becoming the Godfather. Both stories tell of compromise, betrayal, and corruption by power, but the dichotomy is in which story seems congratulatory and which seems like a tragedy.

Mezzo secolo fa uscì nelle sale cinematografico il film di Francis Ford Coppola “Il Padrino”, tratto dal libro di Mario Puzo, un successo planetario destinato a fondare il mito di Cosa nostra con cui facciamo i conti tuttora. In questo podcast, Rosario Giovanni Scalia – autore con lo storico delle organizzazioni criminali Antonio Nicaso, del libro “Il mito di Cosa Nostra. La vera storia del Padrino e di come ha cambiato noi e la Mafia”, edito da Solferino, – racconta a Storiainpodcast le vicende che hanno portato alla realizzazione del lungometraggio, una chiave di lettura fondamentale per capire la mafia di oggi. Nicaso ricorda le storie dei principali artefici del film, i boicottaggi della mafia, i compromessi fatti per girare a New York, i capricci di Marlon Brando e l'ira di Frank Sinatra.Rosario Giovanni Scalia è visiting professor alla Rutgers University e sta completando una tesi di dottorato sui miti mafiosi al Middlebury College.

La saga des mafiosi sʹenrichit de chapitres inédits et prend une nouvelle dimension. Dans "Travelling", une proposition que vous ne pouvez pas refuser: "Le Parrain 2" ("The Godfather, Part Two") de Francis Ford Coppola, un film sorti en décembre 1974. L'histoire a fait du chemin depuis quʹen 1970, la Paramount a acheté les droits du livre de Mario Puzo pour en faire un film bon marché sans noms connus. Coppola accepte tardivement la proposition, presque forcé. Il se bat contre le studio, impose Marlon Brando et Al Pacino, et résiste même aux écoutes du FBI. "Le Parrain" sort en 1972, sublimant le cadre de la pure commande. Vu le succès du film, considéré comme la poule aux œufs dʹor, Coppola accepte, contre contrôle artistique total, dʹécrire et de réaliser une suite. Coppola filme le deuxième volet comme un mythe souterrain qui raconte simultanément la jeunesse de Don Vito Corleone et la déchéance de Michael, lʹâme damnée, le fils sur qui tout repose, rendu fou par lʹimpossibilité dʹêtre bon à la tête dʹun pouvoir si corrompu. Le film rencontre, comme son prédécesseur, un beau succès critique et commercial, et remporte, en 1975, six Oscars, dont celui du Meilleur film jamais décerné à une suite, du Meilleur réalisateur pour Francis Ford Coppola et du Meilleur second rôle pour Robert De Niro. Un troisième volet sortira en 1989. Mais ça, cʹest une autre histoire. REFERENCES Peter BISKIND, Le nouvel Hollywood, Edition Le Cherche Midi, coll.

It's Mia's 3rd pick: The Godfather Part II, the 1974 film directed by Francis Ford Coppola The Godfather Part II both continues the story begun in the first film and also deepens it by depicting what came before. We watch as Al Pacino's Michael Corleone continues in the family business, building his empire while trying to hold on to his family, both actual and figurative. This is crosscut with a portrayal of his father Vito's rise from an unfortunate child in Sicily to a respected man in New York, as deftly played by Robert DeNiro. We watch as the older man builds his empire in order to, as he seems to view it, strengthen his family, just as the younger man causes his family to weaken as he extends his father's empire. Mario Puzo, the author of the novel on which the first movie and the overall saga were based, began working on the script for Part II before the first movie was even released. And, at least according to Coppola, the production of this followup was much smoother than that of the first film, as that installment's success afforded him greater opportunity for control and independence from the studio, Paramount Pictures. It was released in December of 1974 and, though the critical reception was mixed at first -- with the film's structure drawing the most consternation -- reassessments began sooner than often happens. In addition to being the big winner at the Academy Awards that year, the film was also the 6th highest grossing film of 1974 in North America. The Godfather Part II was included in AFI's 100 Years, 100 Movies list in 1998, ranked at #32… and it stayed in the same spot when that list was updated in 2007. For our purposes, it gets a little messy -- the film ranked #9 on Sight and Sound Magazine's survey of directors in 1992… But when it was paired with Part 1 for the the survey in 2002, the 2 films collectively came it at #4 on the critics poll and at #2 on the directors poll.

O episódio 41 do Sala de Projeção é sobre um filme perfeito, uma oferta que o ouvinte não pode recusar. A discussão sobre O Poderoso Chefão, aniversariante de 50 anos, rendeu bastante, além da já esperada apologia rasgada ao brilhante roteiro adaptado de uma obra inferior; à fotografia belíssima em chiaroscuro; à música inconfundível de Nino Rota; às fantásticas atuações, especialmente as de Marlon Brando e Al Pacino; e à magistral direção do Chefão Francis Ford Coppola, pai da Sofia Coppola, tio do Nicolas Cage e irmão da Talia Shire (a Adrian do Rocky). Uma verdadeira “Famiglia” do showbiz. Não deixe de acompanhar a nossa discussão sobre máfia, família, sobre as possíveis razões do estrondoso e perene sucesso do Poderoso Chefão e sobre a figura central do filme: o Pai-Deus, todo poderoso, milagreiro, a quem a família deve amor incondicional e obediência cega, o que nem sempre acontece.

One of the most popular and beloved films turned 50 years old this month: The Godfather! And Mark had never seen the full movie until now - shocking, right? He brings back the mafia mistress Melissa Ward to the show so she can choose her favorite Corleone brother, discuss the dynamics between fathers and sons, reflect on violence in entertainment over the years, and decide who is best for Al Pacino's Michael: anxious American Kay Adams or Sicilian sizzler Apollonia. Plus, how do we feel about cannoli?
Vanity Fair editor and award-winning journalist Mark Seal, author of the sensational behind-the-scenes book, "Leave the Gun, Take the Cannoli" joins Gilbert and Frank to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo's 1972 mob masterpiece, "The Godfather." Also in this episode: Burt Lancaster closes in, Vic Damone bows out, Marlon Brando pulls off a shocking transformation and the mafia takes offense at the word "mafia." PLUS: The music of Nino Rota! The genius of Dick Smith! Gilbert roasts Abe Vigoda! Mark climbs into bed with Robert Evans! James Caan's performance is inspired by...Don Rickles!? And Richard Castellano ad-libs one of the greatest lines in movie history! Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
On this episode of Retro Grade Podcast, we find even more to talk about The Godfather. Behind every great movie, is a great story of how it was made, and the impact it had when it was released. Have you ever wondered why The Godfather was such a big deal? Well, on this episode we might have some answers for you!We talk about where Mario Puzo got the inspiration to tell this story by talking to some mob members while gambling with them. We talk about how Francis Ford Coppola didn't want to make this movie, how the studio did not want to make the movie Coppola wanted to make, and how the real life Mafia that existed in New York, REALLY did not want the movie to be made period. This movie almost got canned before a single frame was even shot.We get into the cinematic landscape that this movie came out in. Did you know that 1971 had the lowest ticket sales on record until recent pandemic? With TV taking off and movies getting stale, The Godfather offered something different. Something you could only get from the theatrical experience. After the huge success that the movie eventually was, the story doesn't end there. Creating a star out of Al Pacino, an auteur out of Francis Ford Coppola, and a different side to Marlon Brando that no one knew he had. A side that earned him an Oscar, that he famously declined and gave an opportunity to Sacheen Littlefeather to speak about the racist representation of Native Americans in film and TV. There is so much more to The Godfather story besides the nearly three hour film. We hope you enjoy this one, and stay tuned for next Sunday, because we talk about Sophia Coppola's breakthrough film, Lost in Translation!Music is from Triune Digital and audio clips pulled from movies we will be reviewing in other episodes.Artwork by @jannelle_o

With a film that has received so much praise, influence and accolades, @ready2retro had to give the proper care to this special review.

Exactly 50 years ago today on March 24, 1972, The Godfather was released in theaters in the United States. To coincide with this 50th anniversary, the Lodgecast has a very special episode we are releasing. In late 2020, Francis Ford Coppola released his recut of The Godfather Part III which he called The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. We watched this recut and talked about it at length along with discussing The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1974). The episode was so epic that the Lodgemaster feared editing it, but alas he has assembled this very special episode covering The Godfather trilogy. We are joined by two real life brothers for a deep dive into Coppola's epic crime films. Happy 50th birthday to The Godfather and long live Francis Ford Coppola!
Fifty years ago, Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of Mario Puzo's bestselling novel premiered in movie theaters to near-universal acclaim, spent twenty-three consecutive weeks at number one at box office, and became the highest-grossing movie of all-time. Starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, and Robert Duvall, the film won the Oscars for Best Picture, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actor for Brando - which he refused to accept. In the years since, it became the first chapter of a trilogy and has been named by the American Film Institute as the second-greatest film in American cinema. If you haven't figured it out by now, Legends Podcast is ready to make you an offer you can't refuse. It's The Godfather.

In the 60s, movies looked and felt quite a bit different due to Hollywood's Hays Code. But as the 70's neared and a rating system was established, filmmakers gained some freedom to explore the art of cinema. In 1972 Francis Ford Coppola and Mario Puzo jumped at the opportunity to bring the vision of The Godfather to the world. Debuting on March 24, this mobster movie set the groundwork for this genre that few films have been able to capture to this day. The pacing, thematic elements, and complex character development flowed together in a new way. This year we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the classic by looking at the whole trilogy and discussing how it came about, why it's so respected, and new ways you can experience the world of the Corleones.

Fifty years ago this month, we saw the release of one the greatest and most influential films in the history of American cinema. Directed by a then-relatively unknown Francis Ford Coppola and adapted from a hugely popular fictional best-seller from a few years prior from author Mario Puzo, this movie took the world by storm having a instant and long-lasting impact on not only films but pop culture in general. If you weren't already aware of the actual plot, let's just say that it's mainly about….FAMILY. Marlon Brando and Al Pacino star in this crime epic as Vito and Michael Corleone, two generations of leadership over a powerful organized crime family. Also included among this legendarily stacked cast are Diane Keaton, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Talia Shire.Host: Geoff GershonProducer: Marlene Gershonhttps://livingforthecinema.com/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/Living-for-the-Cinema-Podcast-101167838847578Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/livingforthecinema/Letterboxd:https://letterboxd.com/Living4Cinema/
As The New Yorker's film critic from 1968 to around 1991, the influential Pauline Kael gave voice to her visceral reactions: she wrote as a moviegoer, not a cineaste. Fifty years ago, in the March 10, 1972, issue, she wrote about a new film by the hot-shot young director Francis Ford Coppola. “If ever there was a great example of how the best popular movies come out of a merger of commerce and art,” Kael wrote, “ ‘The Godfather' is it.” She noted that Coppola took Mario Puzo's potboiler of a novel, and the familiar outline of the gangster melodrama, and imbued them with “a new tragic realism,” which reflected a darker view of Americanism in the Watergate era. Edie Falco performs an excerpted version of Kael's review. Some of Pauline Kael's best work for The New Yorker is collected in “The Age of Movies,” published by the Library of America.
