The Godfather

That’s right, Brando actually found the stray cat outside the set near the Paramount studios. He picked it up when it instantly started purring. He decided to use the cat in his scenes. However, the cat was so content in Brando’s arms that it continuously purred over him as he acted. It resulted in Brando’s lines having to be looped because his voice was muffled.
