Restoring Godfather III: American Zoetrope and OWC

It’s been thirty years since the third part of the classic Godfather trilogy hit the silver screen. That’s nearly twice as long as the sixteen-year gap between Godfather II and III (the break between Godfathers I and II was only two years). It is with much enthusiasm and fanfare that Francis Ford Coppola is re-releasing a completely re-mastered and even moderately tweaked version of the story this week.

Renamed Mario Puzo’s, The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone, this remastered version hits theaters and streaming sites this week; and as is becoming more common, OWC had an opportunity to play a key role in the completion of this film. The hero of this particular filmmaker story was the Accelsior 4M2.

OWC allowed us to make our deadline. I couldn’t imagine doing this without the Accelsior.” - James Mockoski, film archivist and restoration supervisor, American Zoetrope
