The Godfather. Probably one of the greatest films ever made. It has seeped into so much of popular culture that there are references to the film in everything from Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith to The Rugrats Movie. So in this introduction to the latest 101 Films Podcast, the temptation is to make weak jokes and ‘hilariously’ misquote lines of dialogue. Well, surprisingly, that’s not going to happen here!
Instead we’ll just give you a simple overview of what Lewis and Ian talk about in Podcast 014: Marlon Brando’s performance, how fantastic the film is, Al Pacino being awesome, hats, Zardoz, the influence of gangster films on gangsters, Lewis’s Butterfly Puzzle and George Lucas. Also listen out for the brand new Trivia Quiz jingle! So c’mon, give it listen. Go on, it’s great. Really, listen, or we’ll make you an offer you can’t refuse… Ah damn it.
