Photo Flash: Al Pacino, et al. Attend 'Wilde Salome' Premiere

Al Pacino's 'Wild Salome' debuted today at the Venice Film Festival; the actor will also receive the Jaeger-Le Coultre Glory to the Filmmaker 2011 Award.

"There is nowhere else I would rather debut Wilde Salome than at Venice, because of its rich artistic history. Wilde Salome is an exploration into the world of Oscar Wilde the artist and in Salome, the emancipation of a work that lives on," Pacino said of the film.

In addition to THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, additional stage credits include: Does a Tiger Wear a Necktie?, The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel, and Richard III.

He is most famed for playing mobsters including Michael Corleone in The Godfather trilogy and Tony Montana in Scarface, though he has also appeared several times on the other side of the law-as a police officer, detective and a lawyer. His role as Frank Slade in Scent of a Woman won him the Academy Award for Best Actor in 1992 after receiving seven previous Oscar nominations.
