SAN DIEGO, California -- Dustin Hoffman scored a runaway hit comedy when "Tootsie" came out in 1982.
He played a talented actor named Michael Dorsey with a reputation for being difficult to work with, which made him a persona non grata who couldn't find roles as a result. His solution? He became an "actress" named Dorothy Michaels, lands a key role on a soap opera, and becomes a star.
Hoffman was surrounded by a glittering supporting cast that included Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Dabney Coleman, Charles Durning, Geena Davis (in her acting debut) and Bill Murray.
