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.
The actors were allowed to do some improvisation in their scenes. Much of Al Pacino's explosive reaction in Serpico's last abortive meeting with his former captain was off the cuff.
It's my life you fuck!
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.
