Episode Description

Film clips from The Graduate, Midnight Cowboy, Rain Man, and other classics, plus an early 20th Century Fox screen test highlight this portrait of screen legend Dustin Hoffman. We look back at Hoffman's early years as an actor, when he gained a reputation for being difficult to work with; how he changed Hollywood's image of the leading man; and his charity work, which includes "Camp Good Times", a retreat for kids with cancer.
