The film was based on a book written by Mario Puzo, and tells the story of the Corleone mob family.

The Godfather, the novel, was one of the most successful novels of all time. The film achieved similar success and recognition, and many feel that was in a large part due to the participation of Puzo in the crafting of the screen play. A Godfather quiz shows that the film was co-wrote by Puzo, Francis Ford-Coppola (the director of the film) and Robert Towne.
