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.
Playwright Sidney Kingsley loaned his apartment to Sidney Lumet for use to film the party scene. In 1935, Kingsley hired an 11-year-old Lumet to appear on Broadway in his play, "Dead End", and they had remained friends since then.
You know what they say, don't you? If you love a man's garden, you gotta love the man!
In the latter part of the film Serpico is shown practicing with his new Browning Hi-Power at the range. He fires a total of 15 rounds at the target. This would be correct, if the clip held 14 "shots", as the salesman tells him when he purchases it. In fact, the Hi-Power's clip holds only 13 rounds, with one in the spout, making a maximum total of 14 rounds to discharge.
