[5] Peter Bogdanovich was then approached but he also declined the offer and made What's Up, Doc? instead. .According to Robert Evans, head of Paramount Pictures at the time, Coppola also did not initially want to direct the film because he feared it would glorify the Mafia and violence, and thus reflect poorly on his Sicilian and Italian heritage; on the other hand, Evans specifically wanted an Italian-American to direct the film because his research had shown that previous films about the Mafia that were directed by non-Italians had fared dismally at the box office, and he wanted to, in his own words, "smell the spaghetti". When Coppola hit upon the idea of making it a metaphor for American capitalism, however, he eagerly agreed to take the helm.^ Coppola threatened suicide several times during the making of the film.

[6] At the time, Coppola had directed eight previous films, the most notable of which was the film version of the stage musical Finian's Rainbow — although he had also received an Academy Award for co-writing Patton in 1970.[7] Coppola was in debt to Warner Bros. for $400,000 following budget overruns on George Lucas's THX 1138, which Coppola had produced, and he took The Godfather on Lucas's advice.[8]

One studio executive proposed Danny Thomas for the role citing the fact that Don Corleone was a strong "family man." At one point, Coppola was told by the then-president of Paramount that "Marlon Brando will never appear in this motion picture". After pleading with the executives, Coppola was allowed to cast Brando only if he appeared in the film for much less salary than his previous films, perform a screen-test, and put up a bond saying that he would not cause a delay in the production (as he had done on previous film sets).[10] .Coppola chose Brando over Ernest Borgnine on the basis of Brando's screen test, which also won over the Paramount leadership.^ Brando wanted to make Don Corleone look ``like a bulldog'', so he stuffed his cheeks with cotton wool for the screen test.

Previous gangster movies had looked at the gangs from the perspective of an outraged outsider.[23] In contrast, The Godfather presents the gangster's perspective of the Mafia as a response to corrupt society.[23] .Although the Corleone family is presented as immensely rich and powerful, there is no hint of where its money comes from, no scenes depicting prostitution, gambling, loan sharking or other forms of racketeering.^ Sometimes the joyous Cubans will let a family through, but again, taking away the suitcases, rich leather, filled with money and valuables.

Differences from the novel

.One of the primary parts of Puzo's novel which was not used for the movie was the flashback story of Vito Corleone's earlier life, including the circumstances of his emigration to America, his early family life, his murder of Don Fanucci, and his rise in importance in the Mafia, all of which were later used in The Godfather Part II.^ He rises to be face to face with a polite Vito Corleone.

Many subplots were trimmed in the transition from the printed page to the screen, including:
.
  • singer Johnny Fontane's misfortunes with women and his problems with his voice (Johnny is a major character in the book);
  • a teenaged Sonny's impulsive dabbling in street crime and his utterly lacking the tact and coolheadedness possessed in such abundance by his father;
  • Sonny's mistress, Lucy Mancini, was a substantial character in the novel, but only appears briefly in the film.^ SONNY is sitting at the Wedding Dias, talking to LUCY MANCINI, the Maid of Honor.

    ^ SONNY backs out of an apartment, the arms of LUCY MANCINI wrapped around him.

    ^ A book by 'Frank Herbert' (qv) himself claims that only five hours of footage was filmed.

    Additionally, the novel states that Lucy Mancini was not pregnant by Sonny when she moved to Las Vegas, thus leaving no room for her son, Vincent Mancini of The Godfather Part III.
  • Dr. Jules Segal, who was excised entirely from the film.
  • Jack Woltz's pedophilia although in scenes shown in The Godfather Saga, the pedophilia is explicitly shown and mentioned by Hagen to Don Corleone;
  • Kay Adams' home life and her brief separation from Michael;
  • Luca Brasi's demonic past;
  • the Corleone family's victorious rise to power in earlier New York gang wars in which Don Corleone survives a previous assassination attempt and Al Capone sends triggermen from Chicago in an unsuccessful attempt to aid a rival gang;
  • disgraced former police officer Al Neri's recruitment as a Corleone hit man;
  • Don Corleone's ingenious plan to bring Michael out of exile in Sicily;
  • the detailed savage attack on the two men who assaulted the undertaker Bonasera's daughter, which was led by Paulie Gatto and involved retainer thugs (which was only alluded to in the film).
.Connie's confrontation with Michael over Carlo's death is also portrayed somewhat differently.^ CUT TO: Kay carries Carlo & Connie's baby toward the altar, followed my Michael.

In popular culture

The Godfather along with the other films in the trilogy, had a strong impact on the public at large. Don Vito Corleone's line "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse" was voted as the second most memorable line in cinema history in AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes by the American Film Institute.[40] The line actually originates in the French novel Le Père Goriot, by Honoré de Balzac, where Vautrin tells Eugène that he is "making him an offer that he cannot refuse".
.An indication of the continuing influence of The Godfather and its sequels can be gleaned from the many references to it which have appeared in every medium of popular culture in the decades since the film's initial release.^ This footage appears in the released film.
