Description - Al Pacino: A Life On The Wire by Andrew Yule
One of America's superstars, Al Pacino is also a complex, enigmatic personality, whose private life has been cloaked in mystery. While his performances in "The Godfather" trilogy, "Serpico", "Dog day afternoon", "Scarface", "Sea of love" and "Dick Tracy" have established him as one of the greatest actors of his time, Al Pacino reveals that he has spent most of his life at war with himself. Abandoned by his father when he was two and brought up by his ailing mother and Scicilian grandparents in the Bronx, he dropped out of school, ran away from home and endured a decade of poverty and struggle to make it as a stage actor. The period also set the pattern of his turbulent love-life - a string of romances with, among others, actresses Jill Clayburgh, Tuesday Weld, Kathleen Quinlan and Diane Keaton. Combining research and interviews with Pacino's closest friends and associates, Yule goes behind the reclusive star's wall of secrecy, aiming to paint an intimate portrait of a remarkable personality.
