They also did it with VHS, called "The Godfather-The Complete Epic".
The first two films re-edited to show in chronlogical order.
Three tapes in a very nice presentation case and very nice printed materials.
I still have it, and it's my favorite way to watch the first two films.
I just received my Blu copy, and spent a few minutes with part one.
Looks to me like it's very accurate to the original movie as it would have been seen in a theater when first released (I saw it back then at a drive-in of all places
The Blu version is the best I've ever seen it (although just a bit more detail would be nice, but that could be due to limitations with what they have to work with).
As to packaging.......
I'm more interested in the film itself, and rarely watch extras. But, some films really deserve the extras. These are perfect examples.
The first two are masterpieces, and deserve not only extras, but packaging (the case, printed materials, etc.) that stands out. I have some SD's, like Ben-Hur, Lawrence Of Arabia, have packaging that really enhances the experience of owning great classic films. The Godfather films deserve the same.
I also think a future "super deluxe, extra special, you gotta have this collector's edition" version will make it's appearance eventually.
