Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio,
It originally aired on NBC over four consecutive nights (one three-hour segment and three two-hour segments) in November 1977. See more »
A 1981 video release was titled The Godfather 1902-1959: The Complete Epic (in Japan it was titled The Godfather 1901-1959: The Epic). This version reportedly contains less additional scenes. In 1992, The Godfather Trilogy: 1901-1980 was released. It features "The Godfather Saga" and The Godfather: Part III edited in chronological order with even more additional scenes. See more »
This has been released on home video as "The Godfather Epic". It took the first 2 films and reditied them in chronological order. It also added over an hour worth of footage that was never seen theatrically.
The resulting film was in chronological order. The Godfather Part II had cut back and forth between scenes in the early 1900s and contemporary scenes, and was therefore both a prequel and a sequel to The Godfather.
This is my preferred version to watch because it thrown all the Robert Derio scenes in the first hour.
This Epic version is a total of seven hours but it a great way to spend 2 two night watching television.
Movies do not get better than this!!!
