The Dog

The Dog

Directed by Allison Berg, Frank Keraudren

John Wojtowicz took pride in being a pervert. Coming of age in the 1960s, his libido was excessive even by the libertine standards of the era, with multiple wives and lovers, both women and men. In August 1972, he attempted to rob a Brooklyn bank to finance his lover's sex-reassignment surgery. The act resulted in a fourteen-hour hostage situation that was broadcast on TV. Three years later Al Pacino portrayed his crime in Dog Day Afternoon. Witness the true story.

An intimate portrait of John Wojtowicz, the inspiration behind Al Pacino's character in Sidney Lumet's Oscar Nominated Dog Day Afternoon.
