In addition to his upbringing and early career in New York, a book by the icon would certainly be full of Hollywood stories about starring in critically acclaimed classics, including “The Godfather” trilogy, “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Scarface,” ‘Heat’, ‘A Woman’s Scent’, ‘Carlito’s Way’, ‘Donnie Brasco’, ‘Ocean’s Thirteen’, ‘The Irishman’ and more.

Pacino has never been married, but has an adult daughter with former acting coach Jan Tarrant, and twins with National Lampoon’s Vacation star Beverly D’Angelo.
