If you haven't seen it yet, "The Offer" on Netflix is a really great series about the making of The Godfather and the internal Paramount goings on.

It's worth the time to watch if you're so inclined. "The Offer" reveals some really interesting info too.

If you haven't seen it check it out. Well done and quite interesting. I never knew the back story of the making of The Godfather. Full of mob stuff in the background.

FYI (if you didn't know already): Some of the actors in The Godfather were actual Mob enforcers.
