Speak Softly Love ---The Godfather I

One of the best movies I've ever watched, played by two of my most favourite male actors - Marlon Brando with his unique slurs and voice and Al Pacino with his one in a millionth of thousands of facial expression.

The Godfather I -- with a soundtrack which has been, still is, and I know will continue to be, my most favourite of sound tracks --"Speak Softly Love " --- also my late Abah's favourite.

(I don't know if you remember this Nor !) There was a time whenever I came back home in JB (were working in Singapore then...), this song would be played on the Denon turntable--by no other than my late dad. He would be sitting on this big red settee that we had, and would just sat there grinning ear to ear !Heck - that man  gave us this love for music !

The song was sung by Andy William I wanted the scenes from the Godfather.thus the extra clip, ....must look for the dvd now. What a marvellous song, the piano, the mendolin ....the lyrics...

Indeed a legendary movie and music. Al Pacino looked cute and such a baby haha and Mr. Brando, what a voice.

Film makers around the world copied the concept and story and tried to make similar movies in almost every country and region, but the original is far far far better then any of those attempts.

BTW Regardless of Al Pacino being one of my fav actor, whenever i see him with Robert De Niro, I find Mr. De Niro a far better classy performer the Al Pacino

Yes Robert de Niro is another classic actor. People like these two give class to that profession.
