Some of the greatest screen acting of all time, may be a lot of the greatest screen acting of all time, is in Part One. The scene below was pointed out to me years ago. At around the 3 minute mark of the clip below Marlon Brando, Don Corleone, is telling the Virgil the turk Sollozzo why he isn't interested in his business proposal. As Brando sits down next to Solllozzo he brushes something off of the chair arm, a little dust, maybe. Little unscripted things like that come from the instincts of the very best actors. They just do it, it probably can't be taught. Unless you try to do it and see how hard it is to act on that level it's hard to appreciate just how rare a performance like Brando's is. Don't get me wrong, 2 is among  the greatest movies of all time as well, but Brando's performance in 1 makes it  my choice for the better of the two.

It’s so close but i give the nod to Part 1.  Brando and Sonny make the difference for me.

If you got 7 hours to kill one day, watch The Godfather Epic put out by HBO a few years ago.  Unedited chronological order with deleted scenes...amazing how fast it goes by

I picked The Godfather for 2 reasons; it is the only one I watched all the way through, and secondly... this scene...

 

 

@Fuzz, I think you are losing it brotha, that scene was in Part 1.

Tough choice but I'll give it to part 1 by a very slim margin. 

Either is one of those movies you can watch whenever they are playing.

I think you misread my post. I said The Godfather for 2 reasons, not The Godfather 2.

What a coincidence. My nephew on the left with Pacino. They are filming a TV drama NYC near his apt.

I put up a picture of my best nephew with Al Pacino his self taken last week and nothing, zilch, bupkis, zero. No free cigars for me  in a prize thread about The Godfather. No justice no peace.

Can't explain why your post got no action, brother. Except to say, it happens. 

As to the winner--randomly drawn from the participants (voters) every time.

Exceptions must be made in cases of exceptional circumstances. That’s not photoshopped. If ever there was a time when an outstanding contribution to our forum was overlooked this is it. ?
