Plot

First-time crook Sonny Wortzik and his friend Sal rob a Brooklyn bank to fund Sonny's boyfriend's sex change operation, only to discover that the bank has no money. Unsure what to do, the two robbers camp out in the bank, holding all the workers hostage. The police are alerted that there is a robbery in progress. Detective Moretti and numerous officers set up a siege around the bank. When Moretti calls the bank to tell the lead robber, Sonny, that the police have arrived, Sonny warns that he and his armed accomplice, Sal, have hostages and will kill them if anyone tries to come into the bank. Detective Moretti acts as hostage negotiator, while FBI Agent Sheldon monitors his actions. Howard, the security guard, has an asthma attack, so Sonny releases him when Moretti asks for a hostage as a sign of good faith. Moretti convinces Sonny to step outside the bank to see how overwhelming the police forces are. After a moment, Sonny starts his now-famous "ATTICA!" chant, and the civilian crowd starts cheering for Sonny. This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...

After realizing they cannot make a simple getaway, Sonny demands transportation: a jet to take them out of the country. When a tactical team approaches the back door, he fires a shot to warn them off. Moretti tries to persuade Sonny that those police were a separate unit that he was not controlling. Later, Sonny incites the crowd by throwing money over the police barricades. Some overrun the barricade and a few are arrested. When Sonny's wife Leon Schermer (a transwoman) arrives, she reveals that Sonny is robbing the bank to pay for Leon's sex reassignment surgery and that Sonny also has a legal wife, Angie, and children. However, Leon refuses to speak with Sonny, even over the telephone.

As night sets in, the lights in the bank all shut off, and Sonny goes outside again and discovers that Agent Sheldon has taken command of the scene. He refuses to give Sonny any more favors, but when hostage Mulvaney goes into a diabetic shock, Agent Sheldon lets a doctor through. While the doctor is inside the bank, Sheldon convinces Leon to talk to Sonny on the phone. The two have a lengthy conversation that reveals Leon had attempted suicide to "get away from" Sonny and had been hospitalized at the psychiatric ward of Bellevue Hospital until the police brought her to the scene. Leon turns down Sonny's offer to come on the jet with Sonny and his accomplice, Sal, to wherever they take the plane.

After the phone call, the doctor asks Sonny to let Mulvaney leave and Sonny agrees, but Mulvaney refuses, instead insisting he remain with his employees. The FBI calls Sonny out of the bank again; they have brought his mother to the scene. She unsuccessfully tries to persuade him to give himself up and Agent Sheldon signals that a limousine will arrive in ten minutes to take them to a waiting jet. Once back inside the bank, Sonny writes out his will, leaving money from his life insurance to Leon for her sex change and to his wife Angie.

When the limousine arrives, Sonny checks it for any hidden weapons or booby traps. When he decides the car is satisfactory, he settles on Agent Murphy to drive himself, Sal, and the remaining hostages to Kennedy Airport. Sonny sits in the front next to Murphy while Sal sits behind them. Murphy repeatedly asks Sal to point his gun at the roof so Sal won't accidentally shoot him. As they wait on the airport tarmac for the plane to taxi into position, Agent Sheldon forces Sonny's weapon onto the dashboard, creating a distraction which allows Murphy to pull a pistol hidden in his armrest and shoot Sal in the head.

The location of the actual event, 450 Avenue P, Brooklyn NY (1975 photo)

The movie was based on the story of John Wojtowicz and adheres to the basic facts of what actually happened according to the Life article "The Boys in the Bank". With Sal Naturile, Wojtowicz held up a Chase Manhattan Bank branch in Brooklyn, New York on August 22, 1972.[2][3] Image File history File links LFChaseP1975. ...

Many details from the actual robbery are depicted in the film, such as the arrival of Ernest Aron (Leon Schermer in the film) at the scene and her refusal to meet with Wojtowicz, the robbers demanding pizza (although in the actual event it was delivered by FBI agents, not a delivery boy),[4] and the gun that was hidden in the getaway car used to shoot Naturile.[3] In reality, the robbery and resulting hostage situation took 14 hours from beginning to end;[2] in the film it appears to take about the same time. Elizabeth Debbie Liz Eden (1946–29 September 1987) was an American transsexual woman whose boyfriend attempted to rob a bank to pay for her sex reassignment surgery. ...


After being apprehended, Wojtowicz was convicted in court and sentenced to twenty years in prison, of which he ultimately served fourteen. [5]


Wojtowicz wrote a letter to the New York Times in 1975 out of concern that people would believe the version of the events portrayed in the film which he said was "only 30% true". Some of Wojtowicz's objections included the portrayal of his wife Carmen Bifulco, the conversation with his mother that Wojtowicz claimed never happened, and that although shown in the film, the police actually refused to let him speak to his wife Carmen. He did however praise Al Pacino and Chris Sarandon's characterizations of himself and wife Ernest Aron as accurate.[6] The New York Times is an internationally known daily newspaper published in New York City and distributed in the United States and many other nations worldwide. ...


Sonny is seen making out a will during the film which entitles Leon to his life insurance so that even if he should be killed, Leon might still be able to pay for the operation. The real-life Wojtowicz was paid $7,500 plus 1% of the film's net profits for the rights to his story, $2,500 of which he gave to Ernest Aron to pay for her sexual reassignment surgery.[2] Aron subsequently became Elizabeth Debbie Eden[7] and lived out the rest of her days in New York, eventually dying of complications from AIDS in Rochester in 1987.[8] Wojtowicz himself died of cancer in January 2006.

The original inspiration for the film was an article written by P. F. Kluge and Thomas Moore for Life in September 1972. The article included many of the details later used in the film and notes the relationship Wojtowicz and Naturile developed with hostages and the police. Bank manager Robert Barrett was quoted as saying "I'm supposed to hate you guys [Wojtowicz/Naturile], but I've had more laughs tonight than I've had in weeks. We had a kind of camaraderie." and teller Shirley Bell said that "if they had been my houseguests on a Saturday night, it would have been hilarious."[3] The novelization of the film was penned by organized crime writer, Leslie Waller.

The film has no musical score other than the Elton John song "Amoreena" (which first appeared on John's 1971 album Tumbleweed Connection) in the opening credits.

Critical reactions

Upon its release, Dog Day Afternoon received generally favorable reviews. Vincent Canby called it "Sidney Lumet's most accurate, most flamboyant New York movie" and praised the "brilliant characterizations" by the entire cast.[16] Roger Ebert called Sonny "one of the most interesting modern movie characters" and gave the movie three-and-a-half stars out of four.[17] As time has passed, the film continues to generate a positive critical reception. For example, Christopher Null has said that the film "captures perfectly the zeitgeist of the early 1970s, a time when optimism was scraping rock bottom" and that "John Wojtowicz was as good a hero as we could come up with".[18] P.F. Kluge, author of the article that inspired the film, believed that the filmmakers "stayed with the surface of a lively journalistic story" and that the film had a "strong, fast-paced story" without "reflection" or "a contemplative view of life".[19] Vincent Canby (July 27, 1924 – September 15, 2000) was an American film critic. ...
