The Godfather Book is a book about The Godfather Trilogy, written by Peter Cowie.

Official descriptionEdit

In the more than twenty-five years since The Godfather was released, this monumental Paramount film has grown in stature, to such a degree that in several public 'Centenary of the Cinema' polls in 1995, it rated anywhere from #1 to #5 in the Best Film category. Francis Ford Coppola's Godfather trilogy redefined the gangster movie, transcending the genre to become a complex study of power, violence and ethnic solidarity. Few film books have delved so deep into the turmoil - both artistic and corporate - that make up modern Hollywood. Peter Cowie has had access to Francis Ford Coppola's archives for this book. He has interviewed Coppola himself, novelist Mario Puzo, Paramount production chief Robert Evans, and scores of other key personalities and techicians who worked on the films. Cowie also offers a masterful analysis of the themes and the historical inspiration that underpin the trilogy.
