Nearly fifty years from its release, Francis Ford Coppola’s epic tale of business remains one of the greatest movies ever made.
Adapted by Coppola and Mario Puzo from Puzo’s best selling novel, it was 1972’s blockbuster, and made even more money than predicted.
It was also the film that restored the reputation of Marlon Brando, who won the Best Actor Oscar for his portrayal of Don Vito Corleone, as well as catapulting young talent to stardom, including Al Pacino, James Caan and Robert Duvall.
For poster collectors, the most popular image is the two tone design depicting Brando in profile designed by Fujita, and featuring in most European territories. The most sought after of all is the UK English language version, and this is a lovely example of the original UK Quad.
