Godfather and the Mafia
The Godfather is the epic tale of a 1940s New York Mafia family and their struggle to protect their empire from rival families as the leadership switches from the father to his youngest son. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest films in world cinema. Now ranked as the second greatest film in American cinema (behind Citizen Kane) by the American Film Institute. The film was for a time the highest grossing picture ever made, and remains the box office leader for 1972. The success spawned two sequels:The Godfather Part II in 1974, and The Godfather Part III in 1990.

A mafia is a type of organized crime syndicate whose primary activities are protection racketeering, the arbitration of disputes between criminals, and the organizing and oversight of illegal agreements and transactions. Secondary activities may be practiced such as gambling, drug-trafficking, loan sharking, and fraud. The term was originally applied to the Sicilian Mafia, but has since expanded to encompass other organizations of similar methods and purpose, e.g., "the Russian Mafia" or "the Japanese Mafia". The term is applied informally by the press and public; the criminal organizations themselves have their own terms (e.g., the Sicilian and American Mafia call themselves "Cosa Nostra", the Mexican Mafia calls itself La Eme, and the "Japanese Mafia" calls itself yakuza). When used alone and without any qualifier, "Mafia" typically refers to either the Sicilian Mafia or the Italian-American Mafia.
