Dog Day Afternoon

Al Pacino and director Sidney Lumet (collaborators on Serpico) reteam for this unique thriller, filled with sardonic comedy, that earned six Academy AwardÒ nominations (including Best Picture) and won an OscarÒ for Frank Pierson’s streetwise screenplay. Al Pacino plays mastermind Sonny and John Cazale is his partner Sal -- two optimistic nobodies who set out to rob a bank, resulting in an unexpected media circus and complete disaster. Based on a true incident, Gene Shalit of the Today Show called Dog Day Afternoon "…one of the big ones, swarming with energy, excitement and drama. "

The Pink Panther is – paws down – the world's grooviest cartoon star. In 1964, this pink-inked feline slinked onto the opening credits of Blake Edwards' caper film by the same name and threatened to steal the entire show. Sleek, sophisticated and witty, the animation, produced by Friz Freleng and David H. DePatie, was a stylish departure from its contemporaries…and an instant hit.
