The Godfather (1972, 175 min), directed by Francis Ford Coppola, is based on Mario Puzo's 1969 novel, The Godfather. The film presents a powerful New York crime family from 1945 to 1955 and centers on the transformation of Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) from reluctant family outsider to ruthless Mafia boss while also chronicling the Corleone family under the patriarch Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando).
