Reports later were that NBC had recouped only a little over half of its investment--although it had given Paramount uncounted millions worth of publicity since the timing of the televised showing of "The Godfather" coincided with the release of the sequel, "Godfather II." However, things are not always what they seem to be. A holder of some RCA stock recently showed me a report he had received on the latest stockholder's meeting of NBC's parent corporation where obviously "The Godfather" business was much on the mind of shareholders. One of them, a Mrs. Rogers, had risen to ask Julian Goodman, NBC board chairman, if the story was true--had NBC paid $10 million to telecast "The Godfather" and received only $6.3 million in return? Not so, replied Mr. Goodman. The quoted price was not correct, he said, adding "that it would be competitively disadvantageous to disclose actual figures, that the price paid was calculated to achieve certain results and that the results achieved were highly profitable and exceeded NBC's expectations."

Increased ratings mean a higher price can be charged for commercial time. Other sources report that while the $10 million purchase price figure was prominently bandied about, that actual sum didn't change hands. Because "The Godfather" was shown in conjunction with the release of :; Godiaiher II, NBC got a hefty downward price adjustment. But $10 million is an impressive figure to publicize. Francis Ford Coppola, who made both the original Godfather and the sequel, is talking about combining both movies and adding some turn of the century "Little Italy" footage he was forced to cut, because of running time, from "Godfather II" and showing the whole thing on television over several nights as a sort of eight or nine hour blockbusting mini series. There's no question that such an offering would gel large numbers of viewers, but Coppola's asking price might be something stupendous. It is known, however, that Coppola was pained when the film dealing with the early 1900 immigrant life in New York had to be cut and he's anxious for it to be seen since he thinks it makes his film "more complete."
