Info & Info Wanted: Godfather 1 and 2 Chronoligical version edit project?
Time
Apologies again folks. My daughter was born a few weeks early and apparently these baby things require quite a bit of attention. I'm at my office now, but I'll be home in a few hours, and I plan on just bringing the set here to have my office mail them so I can get back to diapers. And for anyone interested, those apparently need to be changed EVERY day. It's starting to get rediculous around my house. I thought children would bring more yard help, not just more garbage...j/k.

I'll send a pm with tracking info as soon as I get it.

Also, consider the discs a gift for the long series of events that have led to my failure in sending them.

A SPARK OF HOPE FROM OT.COM WE HAVE A NEW CAUSE !!!

Man, this is great. I sent somethin g as soon as I read the email. Great ideas, the donations and the mass email. I am just thrilled to see something like this actually happening, and I'm equally thrilled to give my small part to make it happen. Meryy Christmas to Rikter, his daughter and family, and all of you other fellow forum trolls as well. This is the best money I think I ever spent.

Info & Info Wanted: Godfather 1 and 2 Chronoligical version edit project?
Time
Wow. This never really did die, did it. I have the Laserdiscs, and would be more than happy to help this project. Like was mentioned before, my prehistoric LD player is unfortunately not up to the task.

Also, for the record, here is the differences between the Epic, Saga, and DVD versions:


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.

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)

There's added footage leading up to Pentangeli drinking from the garden hose we see him doing before he sees Fredo

There's added footage of singing on the grandstand, and in the parking lot. We also see Anthony walking up to the buttomen, and stopping as Kay calls after him

Any progress on the Godfather Epic/Saga project that was discussed earlier in this thread? I've seen it on TV a few times but would love to have the commercial-free uncensored chronological version on DVD. I doubt Paramount has any plans to officially release it in the near future (if ever) even though it came out on VHS and laserdisc long ago. So fan preservation may be our only hope of getting this on disc.





I still have the LD set, but my player is unuseable. Alas, I have failed.....

Hey now...how come noone's brought up "Howard the Duck"? I don't think its on DVD...is there an LD transfer out there?



I have a vhs rip of pretty good quality I found before. "Howard the Duck" is just too bad to be forgotten about. It needs to be loved, cherished, and shared. If for no other reason then to keep GL humble and grounded. "PlayDuck" Magazine? Did somebody REALLY get paid to write that??

If somebody did produce these, I'm fairly sure the faces will be blurred out and no actual names will be used. lol

I personally love the fact that the shark in Revenge beats the private jet to the island. Oh yeah, the island....THAT'S where you go to get away from a shark...

God I love those movies.

Which brings me to a question - Elias, are the LDs fullscreen or widescreen? I ask because your sample is unfortunately fullscreen ...


I try to use the "F" word sparingly, but yes, they are unfortunately Fullscreen.

My apologies folks. I have the set, just bought a new MiniDV camera, and am in the process of testing the quality difference between transferring LD to MiniDV, and LD to DVD-VR. I just have had NO time whatsoever. Damn pregnant wives can be sooo needy....... j/k

lol. Let's see, it's a MCA DiscoVision pr-7820. It apparently is the unit used for the "Dragon's Lair" arcade games. It was an industrial model meant for commercial use a General Motors dealerships in 79/80 to show the 1980 lineup, and to train mechanics.

Apologies for the lack of updates. I did receive the set, and I attempted to do a DVD transfer with a Lite-On stand alone DVD recorder (kinda like a vcr). The connections were just composite, and the player is VERY old. I actually had to pull it out of my garage, and now my house is leaning toward the side of the theater room I placed it in. It wieghs more than your average Volkswagen.

The quality was not too hot. My player had sort of a "tracking" like issue, for which I have no adjustment. It did clear up after awhile, but upon playing back the DVD yesterday for the first time, I noticed some skipping at the end of the first side, so I'm going to check the LD tonight. Like I said, the LD player is a week older than Moses, so it may be beyond my equiptment to do much with this.

I'll try to post a sample tonight or tomorrow. I'll have to look up some instructions on getting mpg from .vob, but I should be able to swing it.

Well the Godfather Trilogy LDs should arrive next week, so I will attempt to make a transfer of the bonus disc first as a test. If you guys think the quality is good enough, I'll go from there with the other discs. I'll keep updating.

On a side note, I have a copy of "Geordie Star Wars" that has a description as follows:

"Geordie Star Wars is a fan made comedy spoof of the original Star Wars Trilogy re-edited into a new 50 minute film which uses dubbed voices over the original characters dialog to make what has got to be one of the funniest things ever seen.

Alot of people have been selling this over the years on various formats but all copies originally came from the original creation which was created using the Widescreen VHS Special Edition releases of the films so is limited to VHS quality even when placed on a DVD.

What is different about this copy is the fact that I have personally just finished completely re-encoding Geordie Star Wars using the recent Star Wars DVD release. The quality is now that of DVD and is even presented in Anamorphic Widescreen.

To my knowledge no one else has attempted to re-encode the entire film so this copy is currently the best quality release of Geordie Star Wars anywhere. Unlike other releases it does not have the extra South Park Star Wars spoof but I have included Trailers for all 6 Star Wars films which make for some interesting viewing."

The audio is not the best, because it's parody overdubbing, but the picture quality is really good. I posted a request on the upload requst forum at MySpleen, but I have yet to get any response after 3 weeks, so I assume request denied.

Is there any other place I should post this torrent for anybody interested? Thanks for any help in advance.

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.

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

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! (This was also in the Epic)

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 (This was also in the Epic)

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. (This was also in the Epic)

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] (This was also in the Epic)

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. (This was also in the Epic)

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. (This was also in the Epic)

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. (This was also in the Epic)

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. (This was also in the Epic)

There's added footage at the beginning of the scene where young Vito and Clemenza are drinking coffee, talking about the carpet

There's added footage at the end of Fanucci's talk with young Vito in the truck. This leads directly to the following:

At the beginning of Anthony's party, we see Fredo and Deanna in the parking lot. Deanna is already drunk and Fredo doesn't want Michael to see her that way

There's added footage leading up to Pentangeli drinking from the garden hose we see him doing before he sees Fredo

There's added footage of singing on the grandstand, and in the parking lot. We also see Anthony walking up to the buttomen, and stopping as Kay calls after him

We see Al Neri visiting Klingman at the casino, and kicking him out

Missing from The Godfather Trilogy (why?!):

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." [from The Epic]

Anthony's First Communion ceremony in the church

The very first few lines of Michael's Senate testimony: "New York City"/"Would you mind speaking up please"/"New York City"

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.
