Academy Award®. Tony Award®. Emmy Award®. Golden Globe Award®. A force to be reckoned with on both stage and screen, Al Pacino is one of the most exemplary American actors of all time.



With a celebrated 50-year career that stands the test of time, Mr. Pacino has brought to life explosive, gritty and iconic characters. In The Godfather, Glengarry Glen Ross, Serpico, Salome, American Buffalo, Angels in America, Scent of a Woman, The Merchant of Venice, And Justice for All, Dick Tracy, The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel and Scarface, Mr. Pacino created a memorable gallery of historic performances.
