This page was last edited on 20 December 2017, at 09:54. Sidney Lumet’s Oscar-winning retelling of a bizarre Brooklyn bank robbery was released 40 years ago. Let’s try your email address again! In 1972, a Brooklyn bank robbery intended to fund a sex-change operation turned into a day-long standoff.
Here are some behind-the-scenes facts to help you appreciate this felonious masterpiece next time you barricade yourself inside a bank to watch it. That was the name of P. Somewhere along the way, director Sidney Lumet expressed dislike for the title as it applied to his movie, and came up with one that suggested a hot, stuffy day near the end of the summer. THE REAL BANK ROBBER LOOKED A LOT LIKE AL PACINO. Pacino was Lumet’s first choice, but Hoffman was reportedly approached when Pacino, seeking to take a brief break from movies, initially turned it down.
We see a bit more De Niro in Wojtowicz than Pacino or Hoffman, but Pacino was a good fit, too. SAL WAS SUPPOSED TO BE A BEAUTIFUL 18-YEAR-OLD, NOT, UH, JOHN CAZALE. The real bank robber’s accomplice was Salvatore Naturale, an 18-year-old delinquent who’d been in trouble with the law for most of his life. So Sidney Lumet was skeptical when Al Pacino recommended his good friend John Cazale for the role. Pacino, was 39 years old, and not what you’d call beautiful. But Lumet said that when Cazale came in to read for the part, he was sold on him in a matter of minutes.
IT HAS NO MUSICAL SCORE. Lumet was all about authenticity. SIDNEY LUMET WAS ADAMANT ABOUT NOT SHOOTING THE FILM ON STUDIO SETS. Most of the movie takes place in three locations: inside the bank, on the street outside the bank, and in the barbershop across from the bank. But Lumet wanted realistic continuity. He wanted us to see, for example, that when a character enters the bank from the street, he’s really doing that—not walking through a door and emerging on a fake set miles away. IT WAS FILMED DURING A COLD AUTUMN.
The movie takes place in late August, and the makeup department did fine work making everyone look appropriately sweaty. But it was actually shot in the fall, and a particularly chilly one at that. When they were filming outdoors, you could see the actors’s breath, which obviously wouldn’t do. The highly scientific workaround: ice chips in the mouth to cool the breath before it hit the air. THE EXTRAS HIRED FOR THE CROWD SCENES WERE OUTNUMBERED BY ACTUAL BYSTANDERS. Lumet’s team hired about 300 extras to play the crowd that gathers outside the bank during the standoff. But when you film a hostage crisis on a real, functioning city street, people notice.
Lumet said the crowd would swell every day they filmed, especially in the late afternoons, and that the professional extras did a great job of getting the civilians to act appropriately for the scene. It was like a big improv exercise. People who lived on the block were offered hotel rooms if they wanted to get away from the commotion, but most chose to stay. You probably know that most movies are not filmed chronologically. B and film whatever scenes take place there, and so on. Lumet did the next best thing: He shot all of the street scenes first, in order, then moved inside the bank and filmed all of those scenes in order.
