5. Which real life singer was Johnny Fontaine based on?

6. When the book was being considered for a movie, which big time TV star tried to buy the rights because he wanted to play The Godfather?
(hint: he was the father of THAT girl)

7. What was the classic line that Fat Clemenza said to Rocco after they shot Paulie out in the boondocks? (hint: the Statue of Liberty was in the background)

8. Who was the trusted right hand man of Don Corleone who tried to betray Michael?

9. How many times did the assassins shoot Don Corleone when they ambushed him outside of his office?

10. What was the name of the business that the Corleone family owned in New York City?

11. How many children did Don Corleone have and what were their names?

12. How did Don Corleone die?

13. What new business venture was the Corleone family thinking about getting into?

14. What was found in Jack Woltz's bed?

15. What family event was taking place at the beginning of the movie?

16. Who was Carlo and what happened to him?

17. Why did Michael flee the US?

18. What was the name of the girl Michael married while in Sicily? What happened to her?

19. How many times was the famous line, "I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse!" said in the movie? trick question here

20. What other Coppola movie did Marlon Brando star in?

I think watching the Godfather series must have something to do with testosterone...LOL! I'm in the same situation as Papyrina and Fox4aKnight1 except I have seen the first one. Can't say I remember one thing about it.

Can't wait to read the responses though!

when i watch movies i remember some stuff but mostly the impact on me emotionally or intellectually

so while i have seen them all, i could only answer 7 with any certainty

however - a damn good series and well worth watching - especially the one with DeNiro as the young Don - god he was beautiful

You cannot conceive the many without the one.

I'm with most of the women here, in that I don't remember much of the ones I saw. And the horse's head was the killer for me, I couldn't handle it. I love animals too much, killing people in movies, no problems but the horses nope...lol
I lived in NY for almost 15 years and actually meet some real life mobsters, nice guys, so the movies are just kind of silly to me. I'm more of a comedy or romance kind of movie girl myself, although I rarely get the luxury of watching one from start to finish. Great post.

Hey Sweetie It has been a while since I have dropped by...forgive me please.....Godfather? You made these way too easy!

1. Michael was in the Army
2. Tom was an abandon child that Sonny befriended and The Don adopted
he was the family lawyer and the consigliere.
3. The Bell Of Saint Mary was the movie and Kate as Michael if she should be the nun
4. 3 of Coppola's family members were in the movie
5. Johnny was playing the part of Frank Sintra
6. Danny Thomas (and he would not have been good for the part)
7. Leave the gun, take the connoles
8. Solly, stupid idoit!!
9. It took two men and 5 shots to get The Don
10.GENCO, Olive oil business
11.4 natural children:Sonny/Santina, Connie, Fredo, & Michael and 1 adopted son Tom Haggen so legally he had 5 children total
12.By a heart attack while he was playing with Michaels son in the tomatoe garden.
13.Drugs
14.His prise horses head...Think he got the message? HEh heh heh, I felt bad for the poor horse but sometimes you have to make a point real clear who you can and can't fuck with.
15.Connie's wedding to Carlo
16.Connie's husband/son in-law and he was chocked to death by a small rope/wire...good bye dirt bag.
17.Because he stepped up to the plate and killed the sleezed cop and the other sleezey mob boss. And also for his own protection while The Family "cleaned house".
18.Michael fell in love with Apollonia after one look, told her father he was going to see her proper like or she would be minus her father. After teaching her how to drive the car one day he get bad new from the US. As one of the so called body guards is putting his luggage in the car and runs away Apollonia cranks the car and a bomb explose killing her.
19."I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse!" is only used twice but the saying is used at least 3 more times just not in those percise words.
20.Apocolypse Now

Got a question for you....are you ready to share you're seat as The Godfather? Chow Baby!
