POLLACK: Most folks think of Sydney Pollack as a fine journeyman movie director for works like Three Days of the Condor or Absense of Malice. But he also had some great comic moments as a character actor, wisely casting himself, for instance, as Michael Dorsey's agent in Tootsie. Another of my personal faves: his unbilled role as a shocked 'n' amazed physician in the underappreciated Robert Zemeckis dark comedy, Death Becomes Her, which I immediately recalled once I read of his own demise.
