    • Comments on the making of The Godfather. "I found it helpful," said Marlon Brando to Mike Douglas, "not to know one single line and to have lines written on the boards ..." "And on the pocket and the body of another actor," interrupted Godfather Director Francis Ford Coppola. On one occasion, Coppola added, he wondered why Brando was handling a melon in such a strange, reflective way. "Then I saw," he said, "that some of Brando's dialogue had been written on the melon."
