20 Iconic Movie Lines That Weren’t In The Script
20. The Godfather
The Godfather gave us a number of reasons to be a memorable movie, from authentic plots, great performances, and impeccable lines. Such example is when family capo Peter Clemenza (Richard Castellano) orders Rocco Lampone (Tom Rosqui) to hit Paulie Gatto (John Martino) since Gatto betrayed Don Vito Corleone (Marlon Brando). Richard Castellano’s original line was simply “leave the gun.” But Castellano decided to add a little fun and added on “take the cannoli.”
“Take the cannoli,” became one of the most popular lines from the film. Unfortunately, there was no space for Castellano to create more memorable lines, as he and director Francis Ford Coppola had some disagreements that are unknown to this day.
