I used to fold the laundry on the bed, then I got a cat, then I folded the laundry on a clean towel on the bed, then I got another cat, then I folded the laundry on my lap while the cats sat on the towel that I put down to fake them out, and put the laundry into a basket, then the cats started sleeping in the basket on off laundry hours so it’s full of fur, and now I’m writing this post.
“As Don Corleone calmly explains his idea of “friendship” to the undertaker Bonasera, the first nearly full-body shot of the don reveals an unexpected guest: a gray and white cat sitting in Marlon Brando’s lap. “The cat in Marlon’s hands was not planned for”, director Francis Ford Coppola said later. “I saw the cat running around the studio, and took it and put it in his hands without a word”. Brando apparently loved children and animals, and it became part of the scene. But it also nearly ruined the shot. When the sound crew listened to Brando’s dialogue, they couldn’t understand a word he was saying and feared they would have to use subtitles. The problem wasn’t Brando but the cat, whose purring wrecked the sound. You can still hear it on the sound track.”
