Yesterday, I have had the pleasure of introducing a 35mm-screening of Sidney Lumet's masterpiece DOG DAY AFTERNOON (1975) and enjoying the movie with a very receptive audience.

During my research for the introduction I came across some interesting documents of the real bank robbery/hostage situation/media event that inspired the film.

If you haven't ever seen DOG DAY AFTERNOON, don't click on the following links because the movie follows the actual events so closely that reading the articles would destroy some of the most unexpected twists in the film.
