Serpico on 'Serpico'

Ever wonder whatever happened to Frank Serpico of NYC cop corruption and Serpico fame? There have been rare sightings and reports over the years, after he fled, lived abroad, journeyed around USA in a camper. NYT tracked him to a one-room cabin in upstate New York for fascinating story today, with photos. Best bit: Frank says he had never watched the classic Al Pacino movie all the way through, so reporter took him to local library where they watched did on his laptop. NYT site has a video. Don't miss that--shows real Serpico watching film and commenting. Trailer for film below:
