Actually, a great part of the legend encompassing Butch and Sundance was troublesome or difficult to affirm or expose, so screenwriter William Goldman (who 'd essentially been an author before this) just ran with it. Truth be told, that is the reason he composed a film rather than a book: he was keen on the story, yet he would not like to do the relentless research into the everyday turn-of-the-century boondocks life that a novel would require. This motion picture adds up to diversion since it 's contain everything activity, enterprise, silliness, dramatization, and satire in it. The film begins with a noiseless motion picture of Butch Cassidy 's Hole
Don Corleone once offered a bandleader “an offer he couldn’t refuse” (Puzo). The chilling line sets the tone for the remainder of the movie, The Godfather, an American crime masterpiece released in 1972 based on a book by Mario Puzo.

In simple terms, Mario Puzo has kept the image of the epic hero, especially, when considering the relationship that is apparent in the heroes’ thirstiness for revenge, and ultimately their passion for glory and pride. Under revenge, both Achilles and Michael Corleone restore their pride through murder, one among his army and the other among the famous New York families. As modern audience, we cannot afford but to remark that in a modern world where Mario Puzo’s masterpiece is chronicled revenge by murder is unacceptable by law, it is the concern of the police forces. However, we see that law and order is absent in Puzo’s novel, it is instead a world driven by chaos and social disobedience. This reminds us of the epic atmosphere, where man battles against man, and where stable institutions that are supposed to regulate their actions are absent.
