Don Ignacio pays tribute to:

Dustin Hoffman

(August 8, 1937- )

Dustin Hoffman gained immediate stardom and an Academy Award nomination after the release of The Graduate (1967) which is undoubtedly Hoffman's best film where he played an innocent college-aged boy who is seduced by the infamous Mrs. Robinson, played by Anne Bancroft. Hoffman's next significant film was The Midnight Cowboy (1969) followed by Little Big Man (1970) which established Hoffman's status as a Hollywood star. In 1973, Dustin Hoffman starred in the successful prison/drama Papillon (1973) along with superstar Steve McQueen. In the mid-seventies, Hoffman's stardom dramatically increased by his starring roles in Lenny (1974), All the President's Men (1976) and Marathon Man (1976) . Kramer vs. Kramer (1979) won Hoffman's first Academy Award and three years later he starred in Tootsie (1982) which was probably Hoffman's second best film. His appearance in Rain Man (1988) that won him a second Academy Award made up for his previous film, Ishtar (1987) which critics hail as one of the worst films ever made! The 1990's was certainly the busiest decade for Hoffman but starred in few significant flicks. They include Hook (1991), Hero (1992), Outbreak (1995), American Buffalo (1996), Wag the Dog (1997), Mad City (1997), and Sphere (1998).
