In 1977 a special version for television was prepared by director Francis Ford Coppola and editor Barry Malkin by joining "The Godfather" and "The Godfather, Part II", re-editing them so that the story is told in chronological order and adding some outtake footage. Among new scenes from the first film:
After the wedding, the Don takes his sons to visit Genco in the hospital before he dies;
after Tom Hagen returns from Hollywood, he discusses with don Vito Corleone what he has discovered about the film producer (in the original version, the scene where Tom Hagen leaves the house is immediately followed by the notorious "horse head in bed" sequence).
the scene where Clemenza murders Paulie is much longer; they drive around the city for a while and stop to eat pizza and buy some cannoli.
In The Godfather Saga, there is an extra scene in which Bonasera (the undertaker) is getting ready to do a service for Brando. Bonasera tells his wife that maybe he will be asked to do something that will implicate him in some crime. He expresses his fear to his wife, who is helping him dress for the meeting.
