The Godfather (1972 – dir. Francis Ford Coppola)

Depending on who you talk to, The Godfather is either a story of an “aging patriarch of an organized crime dynasty transfers control of his clandestine empire to his reluctant son” (IMDB) or, the “greatest gangster film of all time” (everyone except Aubrey).

We discuss why the film is still watched … and loved almost 50 years later.

Listen as host Erroll Southers discusses the first of the trilogy, The Godfather, with Carla Della Gatta, Aubrey Hicks, and Jonathan Schwartz. Warning … heck, if you need spoiler warnings on this one, maybe go watch the film first?
