5 Classic Dustin Hoffman Film Moments

Published by at 2:00 pm under Movies

Rain Man

When you look at the career of Dustin Hoffman it’s pretty tough not to marvel at all of the successful films he’s been in.    Can you believe that he’s almost 73 years old?  Honestly I can’t.

But it’s not only that he’s been in successful movies.  He’s been in some of the most successful and memorable movies of all time.  So much so that many of the scenes and films he’s made have been modeled after in future movies.  It’s really extraordinary.

I’ve taken five scenes that I think are some of his best and most influential.

Enjoy

Kramer vs. Kramer – French Toast Scene

Honestly it’s nearly impossible not to cry at this scene.  Seriously.  I’m in tears right now.

Rain Man – KMart Sucks

KMart must have been pretty pissed off at this scene, rather the whole vibe throughout the movie.  And you know moviegoers were uttering those lines for weeks to come.  Classic.

The Graduate – Elaine!

Talk about awesome.  This scene has been repeated in some way or another in commercials, other movies, you name it.    Fantastic.

Midnight Cowboy

The End scene in this film is classic and has been repeated plenty of times in other media.

Just about every scene in this movie is memorable but this one is classic.

    The lack of “Hook” is shameful. Simply shameful!

    Hook!? The only thing I remember about that is all the money they spent on it… yawn!

    No, what about Wag The Dog and All the President’s men… they were pretty awesome.

    As long as you’ve got The Graduate up there, I’ve got no complaints.

    Hook was awesome! RU-FI-OOOOOOO!!!

    What about “Is it safe?” from Marathon Man?!

    Sadly I have not seen a single one of those movies.

    Good list, especially the iconic Midnight Cowboy scene. I would probably add something from Peckinpaw’s Straw Dogs. It’s interesting to watch Hoffman get violent considering his character’s pacifism throughout the movie.
