Al Pacino on “The Godfather”—It’s Taken Me a Lifetime to Accept It and Move On

From a New York Times story by Dave Itzkoff headlined “Al Pacino on ‘The Godfather’: It’s Taken Me a Lifetime to Accept It and Move On”:

It’s hard to imagine “The Godfather” without Al Pacino. His understated performance as Michael Corleone, who became a respectable war hero despite his corrupt family, goes almost unnoticed for the first hour of the film — until at last he asserts himself, gradually taking control of the Corleone criminal operation and the film along with it.
