The Entertainers

A British quad movie poster for Tony Richardson's The Entertainer (1960) starring Laurence Olivier hangs on the wall above Dustin Hoffman's mattress in the film Tootsie (1982). Hoffman and Olivier worked together infamously on the John Schlesinger thriller Marathon Man (1976).

Olivier was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for The Entertainer (and for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Marathon Man); as was Hoffman for Tootsie. Neither man won for their respective roles.
