Some 50 years on from the March 1972 premiere of Francis Ford Coppola's The Godfather, Paramount Plus brings us an original show about the making of what was once the highest-grossing movie of all time.
Miles Teller plays Al Ruddy, the young producer who worked tirelessly to get the picture amid chaotic circumstances. The fact that New York mob boss Joseph Colombo Sr. wanted to scare Hollywood off, as he felt that Mario Puzo's book was an insult to Italian Americans, didn't help.
Dan Fogler stars as Francis Ford Coppola, Patrick Gallo is Mario Puzo, Justin Chamber resurrects Marlon Brando, who would go on to win Best Actor at the 1973 Oscars for his portrayal of Don Vito Corleone.
US viewers can stream The Offer – plus The Godfather trilogy – with a Paramount+ free 7-day trial (opens in new tab). And yes, that is an offer you can't refuse, so make sure you know how watch The Offer outside the US with a VPN.
