Corrected entry: As Vincent Corleone rises toward power, he secures twin, long-haired, very buff bodyguards. As they patrol the opera house during the climactic ending, they are both killed by Michael's would-be assassin. Later, on the opera house steps, when Michael's daughter is shot, one of these bodyguards is clearly seen by the side of the assassin after Vincent has shot him.
Corrected entry: When Al Pacino needs sweet drinks and candy bars to help him relieve his diabetes attack, we see a priest behind them leave for these items, he then returns with a whole tray of orange juice and candy bars. The remarkable thing is, he does this task in only 6 seconds. I don't think that the tray had been set before: If Michael had arranged that he would have asked for the tray and not just for some sweet juice and candy. If not, how would tray contain exactly the items Michael had asked for?
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the movie, Michael is awarded the Order of St. Sebastian. In actuality, it is the Order of St. Sylvester. Coppola changed the name so not to offend the Catholic Church.
Corrected entry: The Godfather Part III story is suppose to take place in 1980, yet the characters are sporting 1990's mens hair and clothing fashion. For example: slicked back short hair, black leather jackets with long narrow lapels, dark colored suits with thin lapels and matching dark ties, etc. The mens fashion of 1980 you'd see longer hair, usually parted in the middle and feathered back. Jackets, whether leather, suit or leisure suit, had wide lapels. Suits would sometimes be plaid, but often in loud colors like maroon, red, light blue or lime green with the thick wide white belt and white shoes.
Corrected entry: After Vincent kills the would-be assassins in his apartment, Michael is upset with him indicating that the assassins had only knives. This is at odds with the previous scene where the blond assassin fires several shots into his bed.
Corrected entry: Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul I, who both died in 1978, figure in the plot of this film set in 1979.
