Tootsie connection?


About 0:48 into the movie he is looking through a bunch of photos, one one of the photos looks exactly like Hoffman dressed up as a woman in the role he played in Tootsie. Check it out if you watch and see if you agree.

It is Dustin Hoffman dressed up as a woman (from the movie Tootsie). ;-) He played a struggling actor who pretended to be a woman in order to get roles, remember?

Yeah, I think it's just Cohen's sense of humour coming into play but noticed that myself.

"Hey, look at that! She's not crazy, she's being chased by a cheetah!"

And not only that: Towards the end of the film, when the detective is holding a press conference & he's saying that he "always knew" there was something fishy about the psycho film director and that the whole story would make one hell of a movie, Larry Cohen is right to his left playing one of the media people!
I thought this was hilarious and oh-so-clever as SPECIAL EFFECTS is, among other things, rather Hitchcockian, and Alfred Hitchcock used to appear in blink-or-you'll miss him cameos in his movies.
The Tootsie slip-in on that (arrestingly-composed scene with the director walking over a huge floor littered with starlets face pictures) cracked me up.
What I'd like to know is...WHO's apartment was that & where exactly in Manhattan is it located??
