Watch Dog Day Afternoon
- 2 hr 5 min
Biting humor and an electric performance by Al Pacino highlight this drama based on an actual 1972 Brooklyn bank robbery. Pacino is the befuddled 'brains' of a gang whose planned 10-minute caper turns into a 12-hour circus, complete with cops, crowds and TV coverage. A 1975 Oscar(R)-winner for Best Original Screenplay (Frank Pierson).
