New York Times Godfather Quiz

Critics unanimously hailed Francis Ford Coppola’s “The Godfather,” a drama about a crime family, upon its March 15, 1972, release in New York. However, they did not anticipate how much of the film’s language would be remembered years after the movie had been released, frequently as catchphrases with no connection to the picture at all.

On the 50th anniversary of “The Godfather,” we polled seven reviewers, actors, and filmmakers on their favorite quotes from Don Vito Corleone, Sonny, Michael, and the mob’s henchmen Clemenza and Tom Hagen.
