elias, congrats on that news!!!

keep us posted...i'd be happy to take on "riding herd" on a project to get either or both versions of this to DVD using the ReverendBeastly(TM) Frighteners template--collect funds, buy LD off ebay, get LD transfered, then resell LD and refund all monies.

i think we'd just need a volunteer to do the actual transfer for a "donation" which, again, i'm happy to contribute to either way.

Wow, that's great news, Elias - congratulations!

About the Godfather project, what kind of player do you have? I know someone here mentioned (in another thread) owning an X9 - since the X0 is definitely a no-go for this, would whoever owns the X9 be willing to give this a go? It's a lot bigger than Star Wars, though - hell, this is supposed to be one movie and it's longer than all 3 STAR WARS films put together ...

I'd love to help out, but I don't own an LD player or a (decent) capture card ... but if I can, I'd gladly donate to the cause ... (The reason I'm so big on this is because over a year ago I found out about this existing on VHS and ever since I've been looking for a way to get it on VHS or DVD as I don't have an LD player ... well, here it is)

he is referring to the international cut,also known as the criterion,it has extra footage(mostly added violence to the scenes and a different ending) and it has the original deckard(Harrison Ford)narration throughout the entire movie,much better version than the directors cut,this version sucks and you would think the directors cut would mean its better,but not in this case.

Is the criterion LD version the same as the international DVD version? If so why would you make an LD to DVD transfer when you can get the DVD already?

Isn't it the director's cut only that's available on DVD?

Yup, only the DC version of BR has so far been released on DVD and the R2 version has been deleted for sometime now meaning you can only get the R1 brand new, it's eBay if you want the R2 release which has a notable higher picture quality than the R1 (more than just the 20% increased resolution between PAL/NTSC, the R1 just doesn't stand up to the R2). I got £50 for selling 2 original R2 DC BR DVDs on eBay earlier this year (still have an original though)

This is from my LD conversion:

http://www.haku.co.uk/pics/BladeRunnerEye.jpg

Yeah it's dark but so's the film! I didn't alter the brightness/colour levels when doing the transfer, it looks much better on a proper tv than viewing on a monitor, the picture's a bit grainy but preferred that over one that looks slightly out-of-focus and blurry, however that's only the mk.2 I did 9 months ago and when I've finished my SW discs I'll be doing mk.3 that'll look even better (I learnt some new tricks )

I got some more DVD-Rs so anyone who's contacted me about this, drop me another line!

Hey guys, thanks for the congrats. The bidding for the Godfather ld's will be over tomorrow. I have 2 chances so far, so I'll keep you posted. GREAT Bladerunner cover by the way. I LOVE that.

As for my player, I have to dig it out of the garage to even begin to tell you what model it is. If memory serves, it's a Panasonic ? and wieghs roughly the same as a Ford Pinto.

I agree, that BR cover is great. So please provide a 300dpi version.... please?
And then, perhaps a PM about how we might obtain the disc to put inside the case that the cover will be used for (ie. contact me via PM about the disc, please)

Woot! Now all we have to do is find someone with a decent Laserdisc Player, a reasonable capture card a truckload of HD space, and the nouse, willing and inclination to do it.

Okay, I'm tired and sick - explain to me again what the Godfather LDs have that the DVDs don't...
MeBeJedi: Sadly, I believe the prequels are beyond repair.
JediRandy: They're certainly beyond any repair you're capable of making.


MeBeJedi: You aren't one of us.
Go-Mer-Tonic: I can't say I find that very disappointing.

I don't mind doing it. I used to have the VHS version of this boxed set. This is basically all of the films re-edited (although 3 isn't touched) to be in chronological order. Basically all you'd need is the first two movies. They put back in a good amount of deleted scenes but all of which are included in the "extras" section of the DVD boxed set. FYI, there are more deleted scenes included in the TV version of 1 and 2 (which I believe was called the Saga, but differs from the vhs/dvd release of the same name).

Well, high-quality scans of the packaging should happen first, for the cover-makers out here.

So, judging by what digitalfreaknyc has said, we might be better off preserving this set, getting the other sets and preserving them, then maybe doing a fan-edit to composite all the different bits in pieces that aren't in each set.

It's not Godfather parts I, II & III. It's a chronological re-edit of the whole trilogy (with extra scenes added if I remember rightly). So in the beginning instead of Brando, you have Robert De Niro as the young Vito making his way to America. It's a fine set and well worth the time and trouble should you be so inclined

I have one of these on VHS, never managed to work my way through it all though, gave up on the last third unfortunately, but what I did see works suprisingly well. Was there any extras with this set of laserdiscs because I'm pretty sure I didn't have any with my VHS set. Though I might take a look if I can find it. (I sold off my VHS tapes to make room for my growing collection of DVDs only keeping a few collectable tapes which are now in storage.)

The "GF Epic" is 1 and 2 edited in chronological order:

"THE GODFATHER EPIC 1902-1959:

Scenes added to The Godfather (1972):

Michael and Kay pretend to be in New Hampshire to get away, even though they're in New York. The scene is the two of them in a hotel bed, getting a wake-up call at 3 PM. They're supposed to go to the Corleone residence, but Michael doesn't want to go yet. He calls the mansion (Orchard-9-9539) and Kay pretends to be the long distance operator. Michael tells Tom that they're "stuck in New Hampshire." This scene occurs before Fredo gets the car for the Don.

When Michael is hiding in Sicily, there's a scene where Michael and his two bodyguards are laying down to rest. Fabrizzio wants Michael to tell him about New York. M:"How do you know I'm from New York?" / F:"We heard. Somebody told us you were real important" / M:"I'm the son of a big shot" / F:"Is America as rich as they say?" / C:"Stop bothering me [Calo] with this rich America stuff!" Fabrizzio asks Michael if he could be his bodyguard in America. This scene comes before their meeting Apollonia.

After Apollonia gets killed in the explosion, there's a short scene of Michael, in shock and in bed, muttering to Tommasino & Apollonia's mother: "Apollonia..?" / T:"Dead" / "Fabrizzio..? Get me Fabrizzio..."

When Michael returns to New York, before he meets up with Kay, he and his father talk in the garden. Michael: "Pop, what about Sonny? What about Sicily? ...You gave them your word about breaking the peace, I didn't. I take all responsibility."

(The Trilogy set adds even more footage!)
Scenes added to The Godfather Part II (1974):

After Paolo gets shot, 2 of Don Ciccio's thugs arrive at young Vito's home looking for him. She says she'll take him herself

There's a scene before Vito gets fired from Abbandando Grosseria: While Vito's delivering groceries, he sees three punks over on 9th Street assaulting Fanucci, and they cut his throat "from ear to ear...to scare him." Genco and Vito chat in the store. Vito says Fanucci's not a big shot. Genco says Fanucci has connections. The next time we see Fanucci, he's fine!

After the new carpet is installed, young Vito, Clemenza and Tessio meet up with a gunsmith, Augustino Coppola, and his young son, Carmine Coppola [sound familiar?]. This is where Clemenza sells his guns. The boy Carmine is the one playing the flute, NOT "young Vito" as the caption in the Soundtrack claims

We then see young Clemenza is hocking stolen dresses door-to-door for $5 a piece. He makes one married woman an offer (two for one), and even fools around with her. Clemenza tells Vito to bring the rest of the dresses to Dadine's Store, who'll turn it over the the wholesaler. While driving is when Fanucci hops aboard.

After Signor Roberto lowers Signora Colombo's rent, Vito sees Clemenza, who found a kid good with cars, to fix the truck. His name is Hyman Suchowsky, but Clemenza calls him "Johnny Lips." His name is then changed to Hyman Rothstien [sound familiar? Later it's Hyman Roth]

In a trip back to Sicily, young Vito finds and kills two of Don Ciccio's retainers (Strollo and ?) before he goes with Tommasino to kill Don Ciccio.

At the Communion party, Sonny's daughter, Francesca, comes to see Michael for his blessing to marry Gardner Shaw. He also asks how Santino's football is coming.

Then there's a scene in which Al Neri is talking to Michael (with Tom & Rocco) and they are looking at pictures of Fabrizzio. He was brought over illegally from Sicily by Barzini.

After Michael's meeting with Sen. Geary, we see Fabrizzio ("Fred Vincent"), leaving his pizzeria in Buffalo, NY, and getting firebombed in his car. He stumbles out of the car, before he dies.

Is this in Part II? Michael and his bodyguard take a train to Florida. [heh...a train?! I thought he was in a hurry!]

(The Trilogy set adds even more footage!)
Missing from The Godfather Epic (why?!):

The scene after Vito gets fired, when Abbandando offers him groceries to take home, is omitted

Not missing, but moved: The first scene of Part II (Rocco kissing Michael's hand) was moved to the beginning of the Epic



The "GF Trilogy" is all 3 edited in chronological order. Essentially, a slightly different edit of the "Epic" with GF3 tacked on to the end.

"THE GODFATHER TRILOGY: 1901-1980"


* Additional Footage! *


Added to The Godfather

Michael and Kay pretend to be in New Hampshire to get away, even though they're in New York. The scene is the two of them in a hotel bed, getting a wake-up call at 3 PM.

M:"How do you know I'm from New York?" / F:"We heard. Somebody told us you were real important" / M:"I'm the son of a big shot" / F:"Is America as rich as they say?" / C:"Stop bothering me [Calo] with this rich America stuff!"

After The Don tells Tom he's to go to California, Tom tells him that the hospital called and the dying Consiglieri Genco won't last the night

After Connie's wedding reception, The Don, his sons, and Johnny Fontane go to the hospital to pay their respects to Genco

Before Woltz and Tom start talking, Woltz presents his nymphette girl, Janie, with a birthday pony. Her mother is there. (We can see them in GF1, however)

After Tom leaves Woltz, he's walking to the exit and sees Janie, crying at the top of the staircase, being retrieved by her mother.

There's some short extra footage of Luca Brasi going to meet with the Tattaglia's

After the Don is shot, Sonny gets a phone call from a detective telling him about it. Sonny then tries to call Tom, but Theresa says he isn't home.

After Sonny gets the call from Sollozzo, he goes to tells Carmella that the Don's been shot. He then calls up Tessio to get 50 of his men over. He tries to call Luca, but he's not there

There's some short extra footage of Michael in the car arriving at the mall

After Michael meets Clemenza "he's gonna pull through, thank God," he asks Theresa about Tom. The two of them go in to see Sonny (who's with Tessio). Tom enters the room.

Before Clemenza leaves the house with Paulie, he and Rocco talk about Clemenza's car. Clemenza gives Rocco the gun he's to use to "make his bones" by killing Paulie.

After they leave Clemenza's driveway, we see them make a stop "to call Sonny." Clemenza eats a meal and buys cannoli while Rocco and Paulie wait in the car.

In Sicily, after Michael tells Tommasino that they're going to Corleone, Michael and his bodyguards see a procession of what appears to be Communists marching through the hills

There's some short extra footage of Michael and bodyguards walking through Corleone, before he says "where have all the men gone?"

Before they're on the road as the GIs pass by, Michael visits his father's birthplace (house) and he asks a woman if there are any family/friends of the Andolini's around. She says they've all left and gone overseas.

At Connie & Carlo's, after Connie hangs up the phone, she walks into the bathroom where Carlo is showering. She confronts him about the "whore" which he blows off, and tells her to make him dinner. The subsequent footage is slightly tailored to fit the standard scene, and a couple of extra lines are added where they weren't before.

Before Tom asks Michael "why am I out?" there's some short extra footage. There's also some after Michael says "you're out Tom." These two short scenes talk about Al Neri.

Added to The Godfather Part II

After Paolo gets shot, 2 of Don Ciccio's thugs arrive at young Vito's home looking for him. She says she'll take him herself (This was also in the Epic)
