The Godfather Trilogy 1901 - 1980

Has anyone preserved this? I know FanFiltration was working on a chronological edit, but appears to have dropped the project.

There is also "The Godfather Saga" or "The Godfather Epic" (click here) which was made before Godfather III was released. Both of these were edited together by the director himself, Francis Ford Coppola.

I would love to find a copy of either of these, but especially "The Godfather Trilogy", I found some sets on ebay (VHS) but there were laserdisc copies as well... I have the ability to transfer VHS to DVD, but probably not at the quality that I have seen in some of the fan preservations here, so I would rather have someone else do the work, but I can do it if needed.

Anyone?

I would still like to get my G.F. fan edit converted to a Divx format and torrent it.

I'll try to get it done as soon as "Thunderball" is uploaded.

I have the LD of this but haven't taken the time to do the transfer to DVD.

i could probably get a copy of the laserdiscs, unfortunatly i dont have a laserdisc player... hence why i was going to go with the VHS... if you do a transfer, I'd be more than willing to put together some menus or whatever you would need help with

I have a bid out for the VHS boxed set, which I will transfer when I get it if there is enough interest in preserving this.

But they put that stupid logo on the movie don't they? And sometimes the audio is messed up at the advert breaks.. You are better off with the VHS set..

i captured the bravo airing of the saga, what sucks about it is the ads and crap that pop up at the bottom of the screen, the bravo logo i could live with but these stupid ads for their stupid shows come up and block some of the subtitles during deniro's parts in the GF2 when they are speaking italian.... frustrating... i'm debating whether or not trying to use this airing as a base for my own fan edit... i've never done a fan edit, but i catch on pretty quick so i might end up doing this if there is interest and fanfiltration doesnt end up posting his... if he posts his, there is no point in my trying to attempt it (hint, hint, nudge, nudge)

I purchased the LD set and mailed it out awhile back. That thread was Here

I've never heard anything else about progress though.

Are all the versions of this (Laserdisc) Pan & Scan? If so, we need to decide whether to transfer the P&S source to DVD as-is, or crop it and incorporate the newer anamorphic DVD releases. I'm leaning slightly toward the former, but it really depends on how much footage would have to be cropped.

According to Wikipedia, Godfather II was originally 5 hours. Is most of this footage lost (besides scenes incorporated in the Saga/Epic/Trilogy)? Also, there are 56 minutes of deleted scenes with the DVD Trilogy set. Perhaps these could be used to re-piece together the Saga/Epic/Trilogy if the quality is better.

Does anyone know what Coppola's preferred version is?

There's a Laserdisc set currently on ebay.co.uk and I am bidding on it. I'll let you know how it goes. I don't have the facilities to convert it to DVD, but I am more than willing to lend to someone so they can do it.

No one knows. All we know is that they're getting them ready for another release.

I have the VHS set of The Godfather 1902-1959 The Complete Epic which I transfered to DVD.  There is also a version called The Godfather: A Novel for Television that incorporates much of the aforementioned movie plus additional scenes found in the deleted scenes in the DVD trilogy set.  The Novel for TV has never been released on video. 

A complete fan edit extended cut could be made using The Restoration and deleted scenes.  (I assume that the new, upcoming DVD set (The Restoration) will include the old supplemental material as well.)  Until it is released this fall, there's really no point in attempting a fan edited extended edition.  Why not use the best source materials for this extended cut?

I find your lack of pants disturbing.
