The Godfather quiz

The Godfather quiz

So you think know The Godfather? It's 40 years since the release of what is still considered one of the greatest films ever made, so you might know the Corleone family tree from top to bottom. But we're about to test that.

Any less than full marks and we're going to lop your horses head off. (That sounded funnier in our head).

The Godfather Coppola Restoration boxset is available to own on DVD and Blu-ray from Paramount Home Entertainment. Buy it from Amazon here.
