Quotes

[first lines]
Michael Corleone: [voiceover] My dear children: It is now better than several years since I moved to New York, and I haven't seen you as much as I would like to. I hope you will come to the ceremony of papal honors given for my charitable work. The only wealth in this world is children; more than all the money, power on earth, you are my treasure.

Alternate Versions

There is apparently a different beginning for the version aired on USA network, which shows Michael (Al Pacino) sitting in a garden on a bench, wearing a fedora and a pair of sunglasses. He is on the right side of the screen, and the opening title dissolves in on the left. The voiceover of his letter to Mary and Anthony begins at this point. See more »

The Godfather Part III
17 June 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Well done finale to the fantastic saga of the Corleone family with Coppola's daughter Sofia being the only weak link in the acting area. Garcia is brilliant and carries the same vigor and power as Caan before him. Pacino still has that touch as Michael, now in his later years. The film moves along briskly and features great support from Mantegna, Wallach and a surprisingly well used George Hamilton. Wasn't as big a hit at the Oscars as the first two installments, but the saga is still one of the most important series of films ever made.
