Francis Ford Coppola Screenwriters:
Mario Puzo (screenplay), Francis Ford Coppola (screenplay) Godfather “Don” Vito Corleone is the head of the Corleone mafia family in New York. He is at his daughter’s wedding event. The wedding was also attended by Michael, the youngest son of Vit and a landscaped marina from World War II. Michael doesn’t seem to care about being part of the family business. Vito is a powerful man and is kind to all who respect him, but he is merciless to those who do not. But when a powerful and treacherous competitor wants to sell drugs and need Dona’s influence, Vito refuses. The following is a conflict between Vit’s old values and new ways that could force Michael to do what he most hesitated about and wage a mafia war against all the other mafia families that could separate the Corleone family.
