Why Watch It Again, Again?
There is a new refined version of "The Godfather" in our movie theaters right now - for its 50th anniversary. But as I have just watched it during one of the lockdowns when everybody watched everything, the more epic, the better - I did not plan to do so.
I have to say, after I read the disarmingly charming interview with Al Pacino in the "New York Times" about that movie that made him an overnight sensation I might reconsider.
Check out what Pacino has to say about the Oscar´s reputation at that time. Learn more about Francis Ford Coppola´s casting process - and - to get a taste of it - here is my favorite quote: "Someone called me, he says, You must be alone. I said, no, I’m here with my ego."
