About this book

Interviews, official on-set photos, behind the scenes moments with cast and crew of The Godfather. The candid photography sets the standard for intimacy, the actors are clearly comfortable around Schapiro who seemingly has mastered a most difficult skill. He becomes part of the furniture, invisible to those he focuses on. There are many interviews discussing the cast, crew and studio clashes of personality and opinion, the intimidation tactics employed by the real New York City Mafia, and Frank Sinatra’s efforts to prevent the film from being made, all of which deliver new understanding of the processes and often tedious requirements tied to producing movies. Along with numerous exceptionally enlightening interviews with Brando, Pacino and Coppola, it is also coupled with detailed on-set reports, interesting anecdotes (), frame worthy, never-before-published photography and memorable quotes from the films’ characters. The Godfather Family Album is the cinematic love note, an heirloom that is as much a collectible as it is a deeply personal and intimate diary.
