Since its release in 1972 “The Godfather” has become a timeless masterpiece, a true epic in every sense. “The Godfather” spawned two subsequent sequels and each was as successful as the first. It won three Academy Awards and the signatures of three of those winners are included here. Marlon Brando won Best Actor, Mario Puzo and Francis Ford Coppola won for Best Writing, Screenplay Based on Material from Another Medium. Al Pacino was nominated but was not recognized by the Academy. The large replica poster from the Movie serves as the back drop for the collage. The poster image shows Marlon Brando seated with a cat on his lap. The cat made its screen debut in this movie as the Dirtector saw Brando with the cat between scenes, and decided to include the tender moment during the actual filming. An 8x10 inrole color image of Pacino is present as is a replica, non firing, Thompson Machine gun. Four authentic signatures grace the large shadowbox. Marlon Brando’s (Vito Corleone) autograph, is on the signature line of a movie related contract. Al Pacino (Michael Corleone), has signed a card bearing a small portrait, Francis Ford Coppola (Director), has signed a 1970 check, and Mario Puzo (Author), has signed a white card. Matted and framed as shown on black fabric with gold and black matt outlining both the poster and the four authentic signatures. Four Black and gold informative plaques, and the popular black slope frame complete the impressive, one of a kind collage. Approximate overall size is 30x40x3 inches. Ready to hang.
