The robbery should have taken ten minutes. Four hours later, the bank was a circus sideshow. Eight hours later, it was the hottest thing on TV. Twelve hours later, it was history. Based on the true story of a Brooklyn bank robbery gone haywire on a hot August day, the gripping, funny, Oscar-winning movie Dog Day Afternoon captures star Al Pacino (The Godfather, Scarface) and director Sidney Lumet (Network, Serpico) at the top of their game. A desperate and crazed man (Pacino), with the help of an inscrutable accomplice (John Cazale), takes a local Brooklyn bank hostage with plans to rob it in order to pay for his lover's sex-change operation. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, this 1975 box-office hit took home the Oscar for the memorable screenplay by Frank Pierson (Cool Hand Luke, 12 Angry Men).
