Courtesy-salambollywood.blogspot.comScreenplay byMARIO PUZOandFRANCIS FORD COPPOLATHIRD DRAFT PARAMOUNT PICTURES1 Gulf and WesternPlazaMarch 29, 1971 New York, New York 10019INT DAY: DON'S OFFICE (SUMMER 1945)The PARAMOUNT Logo is presented austerely over a black  background. There is a moment's hesitation, and then thesimple words in white lettering:
THE GODFATHER While this remains, we hear: "I believe in America."Suddenly we are watching in CLOSE VIEW, AMERIGO BONASERA, aman of sixty, dressed in a black suit, on the verge of greatemotion.BONASERAAmerica has made my fortune.As he speaks, THE VIEW imperceptibly begins to loosen.BONASERAI raised my daughter in the Americanfashion; I gave her freedom, buttaught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boy friend,not an Italian. She went to themovies with him, stayed out late.Two months ago he took her for adrive, with another boy friend.They made her drink whiskey andthen they tried to take advantageof her. She resisted; she kept her honor. So they beat her like ananimal. When I went to the hospitalher nose was broken, her jaw wasshattered and held together bywire, and she could not even weep because of the pain.He can barely speak; he is weeping now.BONASERAI went to the Police like a goodAmerican. These two boys werearrested and brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three yearsin prison, and suspended thesentence. Suspended sentence!They went free that very day. Istood in the courtroom like a fool,and those bastards, they smiled atme. Then I said to my wife, for Justice, we must go to The Godfather.
By now, THE VIEW is full, and we see Don Corleone's officein his home.The blinds are closed, and so the room is dark, and with patterned shadows. We are watching BONASERA over theshoulder of DON CORLEONE. TOM HAGEN sits near a smalltable, examining some paperwork, and SONNY CORLEONE standsimpatiently by the window nearest his father, sipping from aglass of wine. We can HEAR music, and the laughter andvoices of many people outside.DON CORLEONEBonasera, we know each other for years, but this is the first timeyou come to me for help. I don'tremember the last time you invitedme to your house for coffee...eventhough our wives are friends.BONASERAWhat do you want of me? I'll giveyou anything you want, but do whatI ask!DON CORLEONEAnd what is that Bonasera?BONASERA whispers into the DON's ear.DON CORLEONE No. You ask for too much.BONASERAI ask for Justice.DON CORLEONEThe Court gave you justice.BONASERAAn eye for an eye!DON CORLEONEBut your daughter is still alive.BONASERA
