The Godfather endures as director Francis Ford Coppola's masterpiece capturing superb performances by Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, James Caan, Diane Keaton, Richard Conte, Talia Shire, John Cazale, etc. The film has been recently been chosen as number three on the American Film Institute's List of the 100 Outstanding American Films.
