What is the famous line from The Godfather? We all know the film’s most famous quote from Don Corleone (played unforgettably in the original “Godfather” by Marlon Brando),“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.” Besides that implied threat, some of the themes of the movie’s unforgettable lines are advice, insults, warnings, adages, or anecdotes.
What does Marlon Brando say in The Godfather? Don Corleone : Bonasera, Bonasera, what have I ever done to make you treat me so disrespectfully? If you’d come to me in friendship, this scum who ruined your daughter would be suffering this very day. And if by some chance an honest man like yourself made enemies they would become my enemies.
What does The Godfather always say? “Revenge is a dish that tastes best when served cold.” “A man who doesn’t spend time with his family can never be a real man.” “The lawyer with the briefcase can steal more money than the man with the gun.” “I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”
Why does Marlon Brando talk like that in Godfather? Don Vito Corleone’s distinctive voice was based on real-life mobster Frank Costello. Marlon Brando had seen him on television during the Estes Kefauver hearings in 1951, and imitated his husky whisper in the film.
