HBO Is Screening A 7.5-Hour Cut Of The Godfather

First aired in 1977, The Godfather Epic is a TV special with both The Godfather and The Godfather Part II cut into chronological order, but the epic also includes extra footage cut from the originals. Because you didn't want to get anything done today anyway, right?

The 7.5-hour marathon is screening on HBO in the US, and we are waiting to hear if Foxtel will be bringing it over to Showtime for Australia.

In the meantime, here's a favourite scene. Did you know this cat was a stray from the set?

    I think I saw this on free to air TV when I was a kid... assuming it's the same thing. It was the first 2 movies edited together into a miniseries, anyway.

    Doesn't really seem necessary, though - might as well just watch the movies. Hell, all 3 are on Netflix so you might as well just binge them.

    First aired in 1977, The Godfather Epic is a TV special with both The Godfather and The Godfather Part II cut into chronological [order]... the key missing word here is order!!

    Rest of the film must have been a let down if your favourite scene is the very first one.
