  • Brooding and intense, Al Pacino has remained one of Hollywood's premier actors throughout his lengthy career, a popular and critical favorite whose list of credits includes many of the finest films of his era. Pacino was born April 25, 1940, in East Harlem, NY. Raised in the Bronx, he attended the legendary High School for Performing Arts, but dropped out at the age of 17. He spent the next several years drifting from job to job, continuing to study acting and occasionally appearing in off-off-Broadway productions. In 1966, Pacino was accepted to train at the Actors' Studio, and after working with James Earl Jones in The Peace Creeps, he starred as a brutal street youth in the off-Broadway social drama The Indian Wants the Bronx, earning an Obie Award as Best Actor for the 1967-1968 theatrical season. A year later, he made his Broadway debut in Does the Tiger Wear a Necktie? Although the play itself closed after less than 40 performances, Pacino was universally praised for his potent portrayal of a sociopathic drug addict, and he won a Tony Award for his performance. Pacino made his film debut in the 1969 flop Me, Natalie. After making his theatrical directorial debut with 1970's Rats, he returned to the screen a year later in Panic in Needle Park, again appearing as a junkie. (To prepare for the role, he and co-star Kitty Winn conducted extensive research in known drug-dealer haunts as well as methadone clinics.) While the picture was not a success, Pacino again earned critical raves. Next came Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 Mafia epic The Godfather. As Michael Corleone, the son of an infamous crime lord reluctantly thrust into the family business, Pacino shot to stardom, earning a Best Supporting Actor Oscar nomination for his soulful performance. While the follow-up, 1973's Scarecrow, was received far less warmly, the police drama Serpico was a smash, as was 1974's The Godfather Part II for which he earned his third Academy Award nomination. The 1975 fact-based Dog Day Afternoon, in which Pacino starred as a robber attempting to stick up a bank in order to finance his gay lover's sex-change operation, was yet another staggering success.The 1977 auto-racing drama Bobby Deerfield, on the other hand, was a disaster. Pacino then retreated to Broadway, winning a second Tony for his performance in the title role in The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel. Upon returning to Hollywood, he starred in ...And Justice for All, which did not appease reviewers but restored him to moviegoers' good graces. Pacino next starred in William Friedkin's controversial Cruising, portraying a New York City cop on the trail of a serial killer targeting homosexuals; it was not a hit, nor was the 1982 comedy Author! Author! Brian DePalma's violent 1983 remake of Scarface followed; while moderately successful during its initial release, the movie later became a major cult favorite. Still, its lukewarm initial reception further tarnished Pacino's star. However, no one was fully prepared for the fate which befell 1985's historical epic Revolution; made for over $28 million, the film failed to gross even $1 million dollars at the box office. Pacino subsequently vanished from the public eye, directing his own film, The Local Stigmatic, which outside of a handful of 1990 showings at the Museum of Modern Art was never screened publicly. While his name was attached to a number of projects during this time period, none came to fruition, and he disappeared from cinema for over four years. Finally, in 1989, Pacino returned with the stylish thriller Sea of Love; the picture was a hit, and suddenly he was a star all over again. A virtually unrecognizable turn as a garish gangster in 1990's Dick Tracy earned him a sixth Oscar nomination, but The Godfather Part III was not the financial blockbuster many anticipated it to be. The 1991 romantic comedy Frankie and Johnny was a success, however, and a year later Pacino starred in the highly regarded Glengarry Glen Ross as well

Well, when Johnny was first starting out, he was signed to a personal services contract with this big-band leader. And as his career got better and better, he wanted to get out of it. But the band leader wouldn't let him. Now, Johnny is my father's godson. So my father went to see this bandleader and offered him $10,000 to let Johnny go, but the bandleader said no. So the next day, my father went back, only this time with Luca Brasi. Within an hour, he had a signed release for a certified check of $1000.

How did he do that?

Tony Montana
In school. And my father, he was from the United States, just like you, you know? He was a Yankee, he used to take me a lot to the movies. I learned, I watched the guys like Humphrey Bogart, James Cagney. They teach me to talk. I like those guys. I always know one day I'm coming here, United States.
Neil McCauley

Michael Corleone
I'll make him an offer he can't refuse. You see, Johnny, we feel that entertainment is going to be a big factor in drawing gamblers into the casinos. We're hoping that you'll sign a contract agreeing to appear 5 times a year. Perhaps convince some of your friends in the movies to do the same. We're counting on you, Johnny.
Michael Corleone
There are negotiations being made that are going to answer all of your questions and solve all of your problems. That's all I can tell you right now. Carlo, you grew up in Nevada. When we make our move there you're going to be my right hand man. Tom Hagen is no longer Consigliari. He's going to be our lawyer in Vegas. That's no reflection on Tom it's just the way I want it. Besides, if I ever help who's a better Consigliari than my father. That's it.
Michael Corleone
You have to answer for Santino, Carlo. You fingered Sonny for the Barzini people.
Carlo Rizzi
Mike, you got it all wrong.
Michael Corleone
Ah, that little farce you played with my sister. You think that would fool a Corleone?
Carlo Rizzi
Mike, I'm innocent. I swear on the kids.
Michael Corleone
Sit down.
Carlo Rizzi
Please don't do this to me, Mike. Please don't.

You know what capitalism is? Getting fucked!

You finished?

In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.

He was stupid. I was lucky. I will visit him soon.
Michael Corleone
I saw a strange thing today. Some rebels were being arrested. One of them pulled the pin on a grenade. He took himself and the captain of the command with him. Now, soldiers are paid to fight; the rebels aren't.
Hyman Roth
What does that tell you?
Michael Corleone
They could win.
Kay Adams
Oh, Michael. Michael, you are blind. It wasn't a miscarriage. It was an abortion. An abortion, Michael. Just like our marriage is an abortion. Something that's unholy and evil. I didn't want your son, Michael! I wouldn't bring another one of you sons into this world! It was an abortion, Michael! It was a son Michael! A son! And I had it killed because this must all end! [Michael's eyes begin to bulge] I know now that it's over. I knew it then. There would be no way, Michael... no way you could ever forgive me not with this Sicilian thing that's been going on for 2,000 years. [Michael loses control. He slaps Kay across the face. She falls onto the couch]
Michael Corleone
Bitch! You won't take my children!
Kay Adams
I will.

I made confession, Connie. I confessed my sins.
Connie Corleone Rizzi
Why Michael, that's not like you. You don't have to confess your sins to a stranger.
Michael Corleone
It was the man. A good man. A true priest. He changed things.
Michael Corleone
Thunder can't hurt! Harmless noise! Bullshit! Deceitful little fuck! Altobello! You fuck!

Kay Adams
No, I know, I know. But I'm here.
Michael Corleone
I'm glad.
Kay Adams
You know? This is the first time I've seen you look so helpless.
Michael Corleone
Eh -- not so bad really. I feel, I'm getting, wiser now.
Kay Adams
Yeah?
Michael Corleone
Oh yeah.
Kay Adams
The sicker you get the wiser you get huh?
Michael Corleone
When I'm dead, I'm gonna be really smart.

Yes -- you will take control. We’ll gladly put you at the helm of our little fleet. But our ships, must all sail in the same direction. Otherwise, who can say how long, your stay with us will last? It’s not personal, it’s only business. You should know, Godfather.

Archbishop Gilday
Don Corleone. I need your help. And not just to light a little candle. My, gift, was to be able to persuade people, to give, to the Holy Church. Then, Rome decides, to put me in charge of the Vatican bank. But I was never a true banker. Mais á culpa, I trusted my friends.
Michael Corleone
Friendship and money – oil and water…
Archbishop Gilday
Indeed. But these, friends, use the good name of the Church, to feed their greed. If money was lost, then I am to blame. Oh, if only prayer could, pay off our seven-hundred million dollar deficit.
Michael Corleone
Seven-hundred and sixty-nine million.
Vincent Mancini
It's done.

What has Joey Zasa got to with anything, Joey Zasa’s a potzle. Joey Zasa. All right, you are what you are. It’s your nature. You stay close to me. You don’t do anything. You keep your mouth shut, and your eyes open. And you do what I tell you. Understand?
Michael Corleone
What has Joey Zasa got to with anything, Joey Zasa?s a potzle. Joey Zasa. All right, you are what you are. It's your nature. You stay close to me. You don?t do anything. You keep your mouth shut, and your eyes open. And you do what I tell you. Understand?
Vincent Mancini
Understood.
Kay Adams
Tony knows that you killed Fredo. <This catches Michael off guard. He gathers himself.>
Michael Corleone
What did you come here for?
Kay Adams
I came here to protect my son. I didn’t come here to see you disguised by your church. I think that was a shameful ceremony.
Michael Corleone
I spent my life protecting my son. I spent my life protecting my FAMILY!
Kay Adams
Let’s be reasonable, Okay? That’s your big thing isn’t it Michael. Reason. Backed up by murder.
Michael Corleone
Oh, God -- You hate me, you hate me.
Kay Adams
No, I don’t hate you. I dread you.
Michael Corleone
I did what I could Kay. To protect all of you, from the horrors of this world.
Kay Adams
But you became my horror.
Anthony Corleone
I will never work for you. I have bad memories.
Michael Corleone
Every family has bad memories.
Anthony Corleone
I will always be your son. But I will never have anything to do with your business.
Kay Adams
The baby I lost...
Michael Corleone
I know what it meant... and I'm prepared to make it up to you. I will make changes; I can. (he clenches his fist tightly) I CAN change; that I have learned, that I have the strength to change... And we have another child, a boy... and you'll forget the miscarriage.
Kay Adams
It wasn't a miscarriage. And you with your cunning, couldn't you figure it out! It was an abortion; an abortion, like our marriage is an abortion, something unholy and evil. I don't want your son; I wouldn't bring another of your sons into this world. An abortion, Michael... it was a son, and I had it killed, but this must all end!
Michael Corleone
It occurred to me: the police are paid to fight, and the Rebels are not.
Michael Corleone
Was it a boy or a girl?
Tom Hagen
Mike, at three and a half...
Michael Corleone
What is it, can't you give me straight answers anymore!
Michael Corleone
Was it a boy or a girl?
Tom Hagen
Mike, at three and a half...
Michael Corleone
What is it, can't you give me straight answers anymore!
Michael Corleone
No Tom, just listen. All my people are businessmen; their loyalty is based on that. One thing I learned from my father is to try to think as the people around you think...and on that basis, anything is possible. Fredo has a good heart, but he is weak...and stupid, and stupid people are the most dangerous of all. I've kept you out of things, Tom, because I've always known that your instincts were legitimate, and I wanted you to know very little of things that would make you an accomplice, for your own protection. I never blamed you for the setbacks the family took under Sonny; I know you were in a position of limited power, and you did your best to advise and caution him. What I am saying is that now, for how long I do not know, you will be the Don. If what I think has happened is true; I will leave tonight, and absolutely no one will know how to contact me. And even you are not to try to reach me unless it is absolutely necessary. I give you complete power: over Neri... Fredo, everyone. I am trusting you with the lives of my wife and children, and the future of this family, solely resting on your judgment and talent.
