To some extent, the film was a family affair for Francis Ford Coppola. Carmine Coppolahis father, who had a distinguished career as a composer, conductor and arranger, wrote additional music for the film and appeared in a bit part as a piano player, and Carmine's wife, Italia Coppola, was an extra.
The director's sister, Talia Shirewas cast as Connie Corleone, and his infant daughter, Sofiaplayed Connie's and Carlo's newborn son, Michael Francis Rizzi, in the climactic baptism scene near the movie's end. They are seen in the Sonny-Carlo street fight scene and behind Pacino and Duvall during the funeral scene. This move, which lasts for about three minutes, was shot with a computer-controlled zoom lens designed by Tony Karp.
Vito Corleone's cat in the opening scene used to hang around the studio, and was simply dropped in Brando's lap by director Francis Ford Coppola at the last minute. Animal rights groups protested the inclusion of the scene. Coppola later stated that the horse's head was delivered to him from a dog food company; a horse had not been killed specifically for the movie.
This scene was shot in Port Washington, New York. This scene was cut from the theatrical release but can be found on the DVD though Woltz can still briefly be seen kissing the girl on the cheek in his studio in the film.
The scene with Michael driving with McCluskey and Sollozzo avoided the use of back-projection because of cost. Technicians moved lights behind the car to create the illusion.
A gap was cut in the center, filled with fake blood, and capped off with a plug of prosthetic flesh. The plug was quickly yanked out with monofilament fishing line, making a bloody hole suddenly appear in Hayden's head. Caan's suit was rigged with squibs of fake blood that exploded in a simulation of multiple sub machine-gun bullet hits.
The shooting of Moe Green through the eye was inspired by the death of gangster Bugsy Siegel. To achieve the effect, actor Alex Rocco 's glasses had two tubes hidden in their frames. One had fake blood in it, and the other had a BB gun and compressed air. When the gun was shot, the compressed air shot the BB through the glasses, shattering them from the inside. The other tube then released the fake blood. At least one location in Los Angeles was used also for the exterior of Woltz's mansionfor which neither Robert Duvall nor John Marley was available; in some shots, it is possible to see that extras are standing in for the two actors.
A scene with Pacino and Keaton was filmed in the town of Ross, California.
Interiors were shot at Filmways Studio in New York. As ofthe steps and gate to the hospital were still there but have fallen victim to neglect. However, the interior shooting location of the meeting was the Boardroom of the Penn Central Railroad in Grand Central Terminal, 32nd floor.
The numerous Tudor homes on the block gave the impression that they were part of the same "compound". Paramount built a Plexiglas "stone wall" which traversed the street — the same wall where Santino smashed the camera.
Many of the extras in the wedding scene were local Italian-Americans who were asked by Coppola to drink homemade wine, enjoy the traditional Italian food, and participate in the scene as though it were an actual wedding.

Two churches were used to film the baptism scene. The interior shots were filmed at St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York. The exterior scenes following the baptism were filmed at The Church of St. Anne in the Pleasant Plains section of Staten Island. In much of the church was destroyed in a fire. The funeral scene was filmed at Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, Queens. It also utilized the former Mitchel Field, and the roadway used was once a runway.
Music Edit The film's famous score was composed by Nino Rota. Francis Coppola's father Carmine Coppola contributed to the music performed in the film's wedding scene. Differences from the novel Edit One of the primary parts of Puzo's novel which was not used for the movie was the flashback story of Vito Corleone's earlier life, including the circumstances of his emigration to America, his early family life, his murder of Don Fanucciand his rise in importance in the Mafia, all of which were later used in The Godfather Part II.
Many subplots were trimmed in the transition from the printed page to the screen, including: Jules Segalwho was excised entirely from the film; Jack Woltz's pedophilia, although in scenes shown in The Godfather Sagathe pedophilia is explicitly shown and mentioned by Hagen to Don Corleone; Kay Adams' home life and her brief separation from Michael; Luca Brasi 's demonic past; the Corleone family's victorious rise to power in earlier New York gang wars in which Don Corleone survives a previous assassination attempt and Al Capone sends triggermen from Chicago in an unsuccessful attempt to aid a rival gang; disgraced former police officer Al Neri 's recruitment as a Corleone hit man; Don Corleone's ingenious plan to bring Michael out of exile in Sicily; the detailed savage attack on the two men who assaulted the undertaker Bonasera's daughter, which was led by Paulie Gatto and involved retainer thugs which was only alluded to in the film.
Connie's confrontation with Michael over Carlo's death is also portrayed somewhat differently. Although she is initially distraught, accusing Michael of executing her husband as revenge for Sonny's brutal murder, in the book she apologizes to Michael a few days later, claiming she was mistaken, apparently glad to be rid of the abusive Carlo and that Sonny has been avenged.
She also marries again less than a year later. Characters with smaller roles in the film than in the novel include Johnny Fontane, Lucy Mancini, Rocco Lamponeand Al Neri the last two are reduced to non-speaking roles.
