Little known fact: the cat in Brando’s lap was not planned. The first nearly full-body shot of the don reveals an unexpected guest: a gray and white cat in his lap. “I saw the cat running around the studio, and he took it and put it in his hands without a word.” Coppola said. The cat’s purring nearly ruined the shot.

Little known fact: each of the male main actors got Oscar nominations. Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, and James Caan were all nominated for Best Supporting Actor. Marlon Brando won for Best Actor, but he turned down the Oscar, instead sending a Native-American activist in traditional Apache dress to state his reason: an objection to the depiction of Native Americans in Hollywood films.
Little known fact: the score was honored (and then rejected) by the Oscars. Nino Rota, an Italian composer, was chosen as The Godfather‘s composer in order to give it a true Italian feeling. Though nominated for an Oscar, Rota’s score was then withdrawn, because part of the love theme had previously appeared in the 1958 movie Fortunella.

Little known fact: Sinatra was involved in some drama. Many assumed that the Fontane subplot was based on the real-life Frank Sinatra drama when he was trying to earn a role in From Here to Eternity. One night when Sinatra refused to meet Puzo, he broke down in tears and uttered, “It’s not my fault.” Sinatra thought he was apologizing and screamed at Puzo. The incident made news and was a PR disaster.

Little known fact: the oranges didn’t signify a death to come. The reason for their presence is likely a more practical one. Harlen Lebo writes, “...oranges were simply another carefully chosen compliment to otherwise somberly dressed sets. We knew this film wasn’t going to be about bright colors, and oranges make a nice contrast.”

Little known fact: Luca Brasi froze and fumbled his lines in his opening scene. Hoping to take advantage of the misstep, Coppola later flip-flopped scenes so in his scene Luca is nervously practicing his lines while waiting to see the Don, implying that Corleone is the one man Brasi fears.
