“The Godfather” Is Back!
Cinephiles are rejoicing with news that the greatest film of all time is returning to theaters to celebrate its 50th birthday!
Released in February 1972, “The Godfather” quickly became the great box office success of all time, and went on to win Oscars for Best Picture, Director, Actor and more!
“I’m Gonna Make Him An Offer He Can’t Refuse.”
This line, spoken by Don Corleone, is one of cinema’s greatest quotes, and now you can see it again on the big screen, as the film is being re-released for a special run on February 25th!
Here is the trailer for the 50th Anniversary celebration:

Coppola went back into the film recently and extensively re-cut the film, making critics reappraise it – click here to see how:
One other thing I love about “The Godfather” is the food – yes, the food!
When the families “go to the mattresses”, Michael Corleone gets a lesson on cooking for a bunch of holed-up Mobsters.
Well, I’ve made “Clemenza’s meatballs” and they are delicious! You can see the entire recipe here:
