# 443 – Dog Day Afternoon

dog day afternoon

It’s another bank robbery type movie! Only a true story. About a crazy man. A crazy loveable man who was married to a woman with 2 kids and also married to a man who needed money for a sex change. Which is where we come full circle back to the bank robbery.

The movie wasn’t half as interesting as the real story, I know it gets a lot of notice because of Al Pacino’s performance (which is pretty fantastic actually) but it went for a loooong time and until about halfway through, Dad and I couldn’t work out if it was meant to be a comedy or not.

This link will take you to an article that sheds a little light on the bank robber guy… it’s quite a good read. Says a lot more about him than the movie depicted! I’ll give you a quote from the article to pique your interest…
“I was a member of the entertainment committee, so I would meet and greet new gay people coming into the scene,” Wojtowicz said. “I could have sex with them quicker than anybody else, because they were just coming out.” … LOL!
