Film retrospective honors thesp at fundraiser

The American Museum of the Moving Image will honor Dustin Hoffman at its 13th annual salute March 19 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel.

Hoffman also will be the subject of a retrospective, with the museum screening “The Graduate,” “Death of a Salesman,” “Midnight Cowboy” and “Lenny” on March 21 and 22.

“With his riveting and unforgettable performances in movies such as ‘The Graduate,’ ‘Midnight Cowboy,’ ‘Little Big Man,’ ‘All the President’s Men,’ ‘Kramer vs. Kramer,’ ‘Tootsie’ and ‘Rain Man,’ Dustin Hoffman has shown astonishing versatility throughout his magnificent career,” said Herbert S. Schlosser, chairman of the museum’s board of trustees.

The actor is currently on screens in “Sphere” and “Wag the Dog,” for which he’s Oscar nominated.

Past recipients of the Moving Image salute include Sidney Lumet, Elia Kazan, Sidney Poitier, Robert De Niro, Barbara Walters, Al Pacino, Robin Williams, Martin Scorsese and Goldie Hawn.

The salute is a fundraising event that supports the museum, which is devoted to exploring the art, history and technology of movies, television and digital media.
