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 New York City,
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 Lee Strasberg,
creator of the Method Approach that would become the trademark of
many 70s era actors. Making appearances in various plays, Pacino
finally hit it big with "The Indian Wants the Bronx", winning an
Obie award for the 1966-67 season. Gaining notoriety on the theater
scene, Pacino then won the Tony Award for "Does the Tiger Wear a
Necktie?". His first feature films made little departure from the
gritty realistic stage performances that earned him respect: he
played a junkie in _Me, Natalie (1969)_ (qv) and _Panic in Needle
Park, The (1971)_ (qv). What would come next would change his life

A couple loves heroin as much as they love each other in Jerry Schatzberg's grim drug drama. After an illegal abortion at the behest of her faithless lover (Raul Julia), lost innocent Helen (Kitty Winn) finds solace with small-time crook Bobby (Al Pacino), a regular in Manhattan's "Needle Park." As Bobby shows her around his Upper West Side world, the two become inseparable. When Helen realizes that Bobby is a full-blown junkie, she joins him in addiction, and their downward spiral begins in earnest. Weathering overdoses, prostitution, betrayals, and a "panic" after a major bust, the pair manages to stick together, the habit sealing their fate.
