Reviews

" A perceptive and provocative work...Dworkin cuts through the filmmaking process' technical lingo and yet manages to maintain a respect for the dynamics that result in a successful film."--Los Angeles Times "This fluid, marvelously detailed book goes a long way toward explaining why Tootsie has already achieved a reputation as a classic film comedy...Making Tootsie is more than a pleasing photo-filled souvenir of a popular hit. Books about the making of movies are plentiful; honest ones are rare."--People "I once said that wanted to be a screenwriter was like wanting to be a co-pilot. Ms. Dworkin captures that perfectly...Making Tootsie has a sense of making a movie that very few books have."--John Gregory Dunne "A stunning job of research, observation and reporting."--Larry Gelbart, co-writer of Tootsie and writer on the M*A*S*H* TV series "A must for all film buffs [includes] revealing interviews with Hoffman and Pollack as well as a fascinating section on make-up and costumes."--Patricia Bosworth This fluid, marvelously detailed book goes a long way toward explaining why Tootsie has already achieved a reputation as a classic film comedy Making Tootsie is more than a pleasing photo-filled souvenir of a popular hit.
