With a husky voice, puffed out cheeks and slicked back hair, Marlon Brando’s performance as Don Vito Corleone in “The Grandfather” single-handedly revived his career and earned him a 1973 “Best Actor” Oscar.

That being said, it is hard to believe that the actor never even memorized his lines for the role.

A photo posted on Reddit Monday by ruinawish revealed Brando reading lines off cue cards held up by his co-star, Robert Duvall. Brando used cue cards for many of his roles, including "Superman," because he felt they helped increase “his spontaneity.” One Reddit user's comment reinforced this idea, as Velnya wrote:

“I heard once that his reasoning for cue cards is because ‘the audience doesn't know what I'm about to say so why should I'."

The photo came a day before the 60th anniversary of the first time the Oscar ceremony was broadcast on television on March 19, 1953 -- where Brando was nominated for his role in "Julius Caesar." This revelation makes us nostalgic for a time in Hollywood where the dresses were longer, the hair was bigger and our stars still retained an air of mystique.

Below is a slideshow of Oscar shows throughout the years -- scroll through if you feel the nostalgia as well.
