An honest New York cop named Frank Serpico blows the whistle on rampant corruption in the force only to have his comrades turn against him.
Woodie King Jr. was originally cast as a hoodlum but broke his leg while filming a chase scene. He was replaced but returned to the set two months later to play Leslie's friend, Larry, in the party scene.
Hey, Pasquale, let me tell you something. See, all day long I work with cops, right? When I go out, I see Mary Ann. Her father is a cop, her brother is a cop, her uncle is a cop and I got a feeling she's a cop too.
Serpico is on a rooftop just before he is shot, and the World Trade Center Towers are visible in the background. Serpico was shot during a drug arrest on February 3, 1971. The second tower was completed in January, 1972.
