After being nominated for a Tony Award for Play It Again, Sam, Keaton made her film debut in Lovers and Other Strangers (1970).
She followed with guest roles on the television series Love, American Style and Night Gallery, and Mannix.
Two years later she reprised her role as Kay Adams in The Godfather Part II.
Even though Keaton received widespread exposure from the films, her character's importance was minimal.
Time wrote that she was "invisible in The Godfather and pallid in The Godfather, Part II." Keaton's other notable films of the 1970s included many collaborations with Woody Allen; although by the time they made films together, their romantic involvement had ended.
She also went on to call him “gorgeous” and wishes that she could kiss him again.
