Director: Sydney Pollack
Stars: Dustin Hoffman, Jessica Lange, Teri Garr, Bill Murray

Producer: “I’d like to make her a little more attractive. How far can you pull back?”, Cameraman: “How do you feel about Cleveland?”. Great comedy fare that hasn’t aged a day in terms of its humor. Dustin Hoffman stars as an out of work actor who in desperation for a job dresses up as a middle-aged woman and auditions for a part on a day-time soap, General Hospital. Hoffman is excellent as both the struggling actor and disguised woman and he’s surrounded by top pros such as Jessica Lange, Geena Davis, Charles Durning, and of course Bill Murray (in a rare minor role). Sydney Pollack proves a dab hand at the comedy and his timing and framing of the funnier moments is spot on. It all builds up to a cracking ending which has lost none of its comic punch over the years. “That is one nutty hospital”.
