“I was very lucky because in school I got into the drama world and I had the most wonderful teacher. I love teachers and I have had them in my life, my mentors. I was in seventh or eight grade and my teacher Blanche Rothstein came to my house. She climbed the five storeys and sat with my grandmother and was telling her that she should encourage me to act. In those days to be an actor was so exotic”. - Al Pacino

Happy 77th Birthday Al!
