More Robert Redford

Posted on August 12, 2016 at 3:41 pm

Robert Redford gives a marvelous performance in “Pete’s Dragon,” in theaters today.  It’s a good reminder to look back at some of his outstanding films, as actor, director, and producer, over the last five decades.

Redford repeated his Broadway role in the delightful romantic comedy Barefoot in the Park.

In Three Days of the Condor he was a researcher caught up in a story of spies and betrayal.

He was a bank robber and the best gunslinger in the west in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, co-starring Paul Newman.

He teamed up with Newman again in the Oscar-winning The Sting.

Barbra Streisand was his co-star in the bittersweet romance The Way We Were.

He produced and starred in another Oscar-winning Best Picture, All the President’s Men.

And he directed another Best Picture Oscar-winner, Ordinary People.

There are many, many more worth seeing, especially “Quiz Show,” “The Candidate,” “Downhill Racer,” “Jeremiah Johnson,” “A Walk in the Woods,” “All Is Lost,” “Sneakers,” “The Electric Horseman,” “The Natural,” and “Out of Africa.”
