From Gay Essential
This American crime film was produced by Martin Elfand and Martin Bregman and is based on the real-life story of a bank robber from 1970s’ Brooklyn who wanted to raise money for his lover’s sex change procedure. Released in 1975, the drama film Dog Day Afternoon was directed by Sidney Lumet and stars Al Pacino, Charles Durning and John Cazale.
WON an Academy Award for “BEST SCREENPLAY”
“Lumet has made one of the great bank robbery films, as well as a powerful character study and a taut drama.”
“Despite its sensational premise, it’s the kind of slow, thoughtful character study that only the independents will invest in these days. It will be a long time – if ever – before we see the majors once more investing in movies like Dog Day Afternoon.”
— 20/20 Movie Reviews
“Dog Day Afternoon provided Al Pacino with one of his greatest roles and despite all the fantastic, award winning roles he played, Sonny Wortzik is amongst the most iconic and revered.”
