Happy birth­day, dustin Hoff­man, 80 years old to­day. Hav­ing won an Os­car for the angsty Kramer Vs Kramer (show­ing later tonight on Film4, at 1.30am), Hoff­man fol­lowed up with one of his most fa­mous roles, as the un­em­ploy­able ac­tor who reck­ons he’ll get more work as a woman. There’s a touch of the drag artist about Hoff­man as ac­tress Dorothy, but this clever film’s story has real depth – there’s more to it than cross-dress­ing.
