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, which resulted in a
fourteen-hour hostage situation that was broadcast
on television. Three years later Al Pacino portrayed his
crime in the Oscar-winning Dog Day Afternoon. The
film had a profound influence on Wojtowicz and when
he emerged from a six-year prison sentence he became
known as "The Dog."
