The Real 'Dog Day Afternoon'

In 1972, a man robbed a Brooklyn bank to get money for his lover’s sex change operation. The story became a media spectacle, and then a cinematic sensation. It was the inspiration for Sidney Lumet’s classic film “Dog Day Afternoon,” starring Al Pacino as the thief. A new documentary looks at the real man at the center of the story.
