From Screen on the Green:
“After countless rejections, a “difficult,” New York-based actor resorts to extreme measures to get work. Auditioning for women’s roles in a wig and heels, he/she finds soap opera success in a dress. Dustin Hoffman is a knockout (not in a pretty way) in the title role. He gets super support from Jessica Lange (an Oscar), Teri Garr (an Oscar nomination), Bill Murray and the director, Sydney Pollack, who plays a cynical agent. The A.F.I. puts “Tootsie” #2 on the list “Funniest Films of All Time,” just behind “Some Like It Hot.” (1982) 116 Min.
The free outdoor event will continue with screenings on Monday evenings at sunset through August 12 with movies shown on a giant 20’ by 40’ screen between 7th and 12th Streets on the National Mall.”
