Match The Al Pacino Character With The Pacino Film
For over 50 years, Al Pacino has been one of the leading actors in Hollywood. And almost none of it ever happened. When Francis Ford Coppola suggested him for what would be his star making turn in The Godfather, the studio balked at using a scrawny, unknown Italian. They wanted Robert Redford. But Redford’s sandy red hair couldn’t possibly have made sense playing a Sicilian. Coppola had to fight tooth and nail for Pacino to even get an audition. It all boiled down to one scene, in which Corleone sits down with a rival mob boss and a police captain at a small Italian restaurant, gun in pocket. The quiet intensity Pacino brings to the scene not only earned him a Best Actor nomination, but it cemented his role in film history forever.
It took another 20 years and several nominations for Pacino to win that Best Actor statue – for his role as the blind, ragin’ cajun Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade in Scent of A Woman. It’s almost an insult to honour him for one of his hammiest performances and it seemed Pacino took it that way. For the better part of the last two decades, he’s been invoking the spirit of Frank Slade, screaming his way through trash that would have never been greenlit without his name attached.
But just how well do you know Al Pacino? Find out by answering a few questions. But beware, while it may seem deceptively simple to pick out the film, there are a few of his rarer works included.
