Trivia: The filming for Toosie went almost 3 weeks beyond the schedule because Dustin Hoffman could only film his scenes as Dorothy for about three hours at a time, after which his beard began to show and it took too long to reapply his makeup.

Trivia: "Tootsie" was Dustin Hoffman's childhood nickname; it was he who suggested that as the movie's title.

Jeff Swanson

Trivia: In the first scene where Michael wakes up to dress up as Dorothy, there is a photo by the alarm clock. The woman in this photo is Dustin Hoffman's mother.

Continuity mistake: When Hoffman accompanies Teri Garr to the audition for the role he later gets, his hair is obviously shorter (ears showing, etc.) than in the rest of the film.

More quotes from Tootsie

Question: Why is it that Julie throws a drink in Michael's face? I thought she wanted a guy to say those things to her the night Michael was Dorothy.

Answer: What she said was a fantasy - big difference between saying that in conversation and actually having it said to her.

Thank you.
