The film star discussed how he got into acting – in spite of a childhood ambition to play baseball – and talked about his mentors who included Charlie Lung and Lee Strosberg. Among the revelations he gave were that Paramount Pictures did not want him cast as Michael Corleone in “The Godfather.” When asked who his most difficult role was, he replied “Sonny Wortzik in ‘Dog Day Afternoon’.”

The stage and screen icon ended the evening with a monologue from “When God Looked Away,” a play where Pacino portrays famed playwright Tennessee Williams. The play, adapted from Dotson Rader’s 1985 Williams biography, is scheduled for Broadway during the 2016-17 season.
