Resume The GodfatherMario Puzo's novel, The Godfather, was already a bestseller in 1970. The film's launch led to numerous protests, by the Italian-American Civil Rights League and many politicians; intimidation attempts and bomb threats became commonplace. Negotiations were then initiated with the protagonists and common ground was found. The project was first proposed to Sergio Leone, who refused it, in order to write his own gangster film, which would be made under the name Il était une fois en Amerique (1984); other filmmakers were approached, such as Arthur Penn, Peter Yates or Costa-Gavras. Francis Ford Coppola and Puzo, the writers, decided from the beginning not to use the words "mafia" and "cosa nostra" in the film.
Producer Albert S. Ruddy and Francis Ford Coppola have decided to focus their casting on actors with an "authentic" look, such as James Caan or Talia Shire. Ruddy and Coppola, on the other hand, insisted on imposing Marlon Brando in the role of Don Vito Corleone, after having considered Laurence Olivier, and despite the Paramount's reticence: in fact, for the first time, the actor accepted to make tests, dressed up as for his role in the film, notably with cotton in his cheeks, in order to appear "like a Bulldog", according to his own words.
The choice of Michael Corleone was more difficult: many stars were considered, such as Warren Beatty, Jack Nicholson, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Redford or Ryan O'Neal before the role went to Al Pacino, a theatre actor until then unknown.
