Description

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."
