OSCAR WINNER: Best Original Screenplay From the true story about a Brooklyn bank robbery gone haywire one hot August day comes a gripping, funny Oscar-winning movie capturing star Al Pacino and director Sidney Lumet at the top of their game. A desperate and crazed man (Pacino in his Oscar-nominated role), with the help of an accomplice (John Cazale), takes a local Brooklyn bank hostage with plans to rob it in order to pay for his lover's sex-change operation. Lumet also picked up a "Best Director" nod. Nominated for six Academy Awards, including "Best Picture," this 1975 box-office hit did win the Oscar for Frank Pierson's memorable screenplay.
