The Gold Box spotlight deal of the day today over at Amazon is The Godfather Collection: The Coppola Restoration Blu-ray Edition on sale for only $16.99 (that’s 71% off the list price of $57.99).
The 4-disc blu-ray box set includes all three films in the epic cinematic saga of the Corleone crime family, from the groundbreaking 1972 Oscar-winning classic original, The Godfather, to the much-maligned 1990 third chapter, plus a fourth disc containing hours of bonus features including extensive documentaries, deleted scenes (many of which were reintegrated into the first two films when director Francis Ford Coppola was preparing The Godfather: The Complete Novel for Television back in 1977), vintage featurettes, photo and storyboard galleries, theatrical trailers, and much more.
Each film has been fully restored under the supervision of Robert Harris – who has performed similar duties in the past on David Lean’s masterpiece Lawrence of Arabia among many others – and master cinematographer Gordon Willis and comes with a comprehensive audio commentary by Coppola. The grand tragedy of the Corleone clan has never looked or sounded better on home video.
