Jon Lewis on The Godfather

OSU professor Jon Lewis reflects on the success of The Godfather, the first blockbuster success directed by a university-educated film school graduate. His analysis appears in a series published by the British Film Institute. Lewis points out that, ironically, the movie was financed with mafia money.

Lewis’ approach to film was the subject of Leading Man, a feature in the fall 2009 issue of Terra.
