A master storyteller in the classic Hollywood style, Sidney Pollack has conquered every genre, from the bleak realist drama of They Shoot Horses Don't They? to Tootsie, which rivals the best of the screwball classics. Here he unravels the chaotic process that went into making an almost perfect film.

"Sydney Pollack's audio track provides new reasons to appreciate the film and what Pollack brought to it." -Chuck Rich, The Entertainment Report (NBC Radio)

Actor Michael Dorsey (Dustin Hoffman) dons a wig and a dress to win the lead in a soap opera as Dorothy Michaels, but is woefully unprepared to handle life as a woman! Jessica Lange, Bill Murray, Teri Garr, and Geena Davis also star in this light-hearted farce that pokes serious fun at the misunderstandings between men and women. Both Criterion editions offer a widescreen transfer and audio commentary by director Sydney Pollack discussing the film's production.

The two-disc special edition also features:

  • The Making of Tootsie, a documentary film by Rocky Lang
  • Hundreds of high-fashion photos of "Dorothy Michaels" by Greg Gorman
  • Photos, scene analyses, and biographies from the book Making Tootsie, by Susan Dworkin
  • The television trailer
