The surviving stars of The Godfather reunited at the Tribeca Film Festival this week, and their discussion uncovered some previously unknown anecdotes.

Al Pacino, who starred as Michael Corleone, described how he and co-star Diane Keaton were not optimistic about the film.

“Diane and I in that wedding thing … I mean we got so loaded after that wedding scene,” Pacino told the audience to laughter while Keaton — who made a special unannounced appearance at the event — shook her head “no.”

“A lot of chaos going on there,” Pacino said of the scene, which was filmed at night using faked daylight because they were behind schedule. “We got back, and we started drinking and we were just talking about ‘where do we go from here?’ ‘we’re done’ ‘it’s the worst film ever made,’” the “Dog Day Afternoon” star continued.

James Caan and Robert Duvall described their roles as the on-set jokesters, including a mooning contest with Marlon Brando, who passed away in 2004.

The Godfather turns 45 years old this year.
