Mini biography


One of the greatest actors in all of film history, Al Pacino established

himself during one of film's greatest decades, the 70s, and has become

an enduring and iconic figure in the world of American movies. Born on

April 25th, 1940 in the South Bronx, New York, Pacino's parents

(Salvatore and Rose) divorced when he was young. His mother moved them

into his grandparents' house. Pacino found himself often repeating the

plots and voices of characters who he had seen in the movies, one of his

favorite activities. Bored and unmotivated in school, the young Al

Pacino found a haven in school plays, and his interest soon blossomed

into a full-time career. Starting on the stage, Pacino went through a

lengthy period of depression and poverty, sometimes having to borrow bus

fare to make it to auditions. He made it into the prestigious Actors

Studio in 1966, studying under the legendary acting coach HYPERLINK

"" award for the 1966-67 season.

Gaining notoriety on the theater scene, Pacino then won the Tony

gritty realistic stage performances that earned him respect: he played a

junkie in HYPERLINK "" The Panic in

Needle Park (1971) after his film HYPERLINK

"" debut in HYPERLINK

"" Me, Natalie (1969). What came next

would change his life forever. The part of Michael Corleone in

HYPERLINK "" The Godfather (1972) was

one of the most sought- after roles in film history. HYPERLINK

"" Robert Redford , HYPERLINK

"" Warren Beatty , HYPERLINK

"" Jack Nicholson , HYPERLINK

"" Ryan O'Neal , HYPERLINK

"" Robert De Niro , and a host of others

were bandied about for the role, but director HYPERLINK

"" Francis Ford Coppola had his heart

set on the unknown Italian Pacino. From the studio, to the producers, to

the cast on down, nobody else wanted Al Pacino. Though Coppola won out

through slick persuasion, Pacino was in constant fear of being fired and

replaced at any minute during the hellish shoot. But the role was a

career- making hit, and earned him his first Academy HYPERLINK

"" Award nomination for Best

Supporting Actor. Instead of taking on easier projects for money, Pacino
