Abstract

The movie Tootsie not only reflects increasing American tolerance of androgyny in both men and women, but also celebrates an old-fashioned ideal of self-discipline, an ideal implicit in a male incarcerating himself within the prison of femininity and learning from it . It is an achievement of the modernist temper.
