AFI Movie Club: J.J. Abrams Recommends TOOTSIE


J.J. Abrams announces today's AFI Movie Club selection: TOOTSIE. The film appears on three of AFI's lists of the greatest American films – most notably ranked #2 on AFI's 100 YEARS…100 LAUGHS list, which chronicles the funniest films ever to grace the silver screen.

DID YOU KNOW? It took star Dustin Hoffman 90 minutes to get dressed and two-and-a-half hours in makeup to get into the character of Dorothy, and he was referred to a speech consultant from UCLA to perfect the higher pitches of his character's voice. In this exclusive AFI Archive video, watch Hoffman talk about working on the film.
