The second part of Francis Ford Coppola’s Epic and violent Gangster Trilogy “The Godfather: Part II”, follows the reign of ‘new’ Don, Michael Corleone as the head of the Corleone family. The film shows us the early years of Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando) played flawlessly by Academy Award Winner Robert De Niro, and how he created his empire of money, gambling and respect. Th example offered here is from a limited British re-release in 1996. Beautiful looking and well designed with simple black and white main imagery featuring a thoughtful Al Pacino in a key scene from the movie as he plots his rise to power in the ‘Family’ study. Because of the small number of cinemas screening the movie this is a very hard to find poster. This example displays to excellent effect and is presented in original unrestored rolled condition. An outstanding piece of movie memorabilia. The film series 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: While the word “mafia” is never spoken in The Godfather (1972), it is heard three times in this film, during the Senate hearings. Senator Geary says, “These hearings on the Mafia…” The committee Chairman says, “You are the head of the most powerful Mafia family in this country.” Michael Corleone in his statement says, “Whether it is called ‘Mafia’ or ‘Cosa Nostra’ or whatever other name you wish… “
