The Godfather

Easter egg: In the Godfather DVD Collection, on the bonus materials disc, click on Set up. At the setup screen, press right to highlight a globe. Click on it to see clips from the Godfather movies translated into different foreign languages.

Easter egg: Go to the Galleries section and select 'DVD Credits'. Press 'Next' a few times until you reach the last screen on the DVD credits menu. Press 'Next' again to see a scene from The Sopranos where they try to watch a bootlegged copy of the Godfather on DVD. Very funny.

Tom Hagen: I'm an attorney for the Corleone family. These men are private detectives hired to protect Vito Corleone. They are licensed to carry firearms. If you interfere you'll have to appear before a judge in the morning and show cause.

Trivia: In the scene where Vito is in the garden with his grandson, he puts a lemon (or an orange) peel in his mouth, and the kid looks scared. Well, the kid really is scared. Marlon Brando improvised that, and the kid wasn't expecting it.

Question: How does Don Vito Corleone know that a meeting was going to be setup for Michael's assassination?

Answer: Being a Don for such a long time, Vito has probably seen most every dirty trick used by the other families.

Answer: The Corleones are the most powerful of the New York Five Families. With Don Corleone now retired, Michael is perceived as an inexperienced and weak successor, making him a likely target for the other dons. He would be the most vulnerable at a closed meeting. Vito knows this and that if Michael were assassinated, the Corleone empire would fall apart and their territory taken over.

Answer: Because at the end of the olive oil war in 1934, Vito used the exact same plan to execute his falling enemy Mariposa, and the traitor in Mariposa's family was his capo Emilio Barzini, and Vito figured out that Barzini will use the same plan to get rid of Michael, an unexperienced boss of a falling family (as known to Barzini).

Chosen answer: Because that's how he would organize a hit like that.
