    The Godfather


    “If by chance an honest man like yourself should make enemies, then they would become my enemies. And then they would fear you.”

    Francis Ford Coppola’s multi Oscar winning masterpiece “The Godfather” is THE GREATEST FILM EVER MADE. Re-released in 2022 for its 5oth Anniversary, renowned artist Paul Shipper was commissioned to create a new poster for the event. Shipper’s artwork is superb with an incredible cast montage poster, with as you would expect Brando & Pacino taking centre stage. This British one-sheet displays to excellent effect and is an outstanding movie poster for a film, that is a phenomenon. An exquisite Mafia epic with outstanding performances, Coppola got everything right, creating a cinematic event with an immeasurable influence on everyday culture and life.

    Trivia: The smack that Vito gives Johnny Fontane was not in the script. Marlon Brando improvised the smack and Al Martinos confused reaction was real. According to James Caan, “Martino didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.”
