Someone mentioned to me the other day in an e-mail that they are filming again in our neighborhood.
When I think of the film industry setting up shop around the way, only one project comes to mind.
ATTICA! ATTICA! ATTICA!
Dog Day Afternoon was shot in 1975 on ninth avenue between 17th and 18th street. I was in the third grade. I recall at night they had the helicopters flying around making all sorts of noise. I was only allowed to watch from my third floor window. I couldn’t see much though.
Thanks once again to Gladys M. for sharing the “Micky Breen Collection.”
Film director Sidney Lumet.
John Kelly who worked in the movie. Great gig, huh?
And of course, Bobby “Little Moe” Maloney
