The Godfather is widely considered to be the greatest movie ever made. This fully authorised, fully annotated and illustrated edition of the film's screenplay is packed with little-known facts, behind-the-scenes information and exclusive interviews.

"A streamlined version of the back story, highlighting the difficulties that swirled around the production...The beauty of "The Annotated Godfather" is that it puts all this in context, while making sure we never lose sight of the most important element: the film... Jones takes us inside the process to see the odd mix of serendipity and inspiration that resides at the center of any great work of art." -- David Ulin "Los Angeles Times"
