Directed by Sidney Lumet, Dog Day Afternoon stars Al Pacino, John Cazale, James Broderick, Charles Durning and Actors Studio members Carol Kane, Penny Allen and Sully Boyer. The Academy Award winning screenplay by Frank Pierson is based on the real-life story of two amateur bank robbers who on a hot August day in 1972 attempt to rob a bank in Brooklyn NY. When everything goes wrong the failed heist turns into a 14 hour long media circus hostage crisis. Pacino’s indelible performance brought him his fourth consecutive Oscar nomination. Released in 1975, Dog Day Afternoon was nominated for six Academy Awards. In 2009 it was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry.
