1983 didn’t have a whole lot going for it, but it did have Tootsie and 25 years later, it still stands up. A new special edition DVD is coming from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) is a talented actor, but his demanding nature and stubborn temperament have antagonized every producer in New York. Now his agent insists no one will hire him. But Michael needs money – eight thousand dollars to be exact – and to earn it, he’s willing to play the role of a lifetime. Dustin Hoffman stars (as a man and a woman!) with Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Bill Murray and Geena Davis in director Sydney Pollack’s heart-filled classic that heralded a new era of Hollywood wig-flipping and set a new standard for unpredictable laugh-out-loud comedy.
In addition to remastering the film, the DVD will contain the new documentary A Better Man: THe Making of Tootsie, deleted scenes and screen tests.
Arriving on February 5th, the DVD arrives with a suggested retail price of $19.94.
