  • Highest Rated: 100% Earth: One Amazing Day (2017)
  • Lowest Rated: 18% The Adderall Diaries (2016)
  • Birthday: Aug 18, 1936
  • Birthplace: Santa Monica, California, USA
  • Has Scottish-Irish ancestry. Life-long love of climbing started as a teen when he climbed buildings in the Los Angeles area. Played baseball in high school with future Hall of Fame pitcher Don Drysdale. Studied art in Europe before moving to New York and took an acting class on a suggestion it could lead to a job as an art director. Appeared in numerous TV series in the early 1960s, including Maverick, Alfred Hitchcock Presents and The Twilight Zone. Made big-screen debut in 1962 in War Hunt with actor Sydney Pollack who later directed him in seven movies, including The Way We Were, Three Days of the Condor and Out of Africa. Scored first major stage and screen hit with Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park with Jane Fonda, before becoming a household name with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid in 1969. Starred in The Sting in 1973 which was nominated for ten Oscars, winning seven, and was chosen for preservation in the 'National Film Registry'. Founded the nonprofit Sundance Institute in 1980, a venture that showcases independent film projects and spawned the Sundance Film Festival and the Sundance Channel. Won an Oscar for 1980 directorial debut Ordinary People. Was a Kennedy Center Honors recipient in 2005. In 2008, received the Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize for his "pivotal" role in the arts. In 2010, received France's Knight of the Legion of Honour award. Released his eighth film as director in 2011 with the historical drama The Conspirator. The film deals with the controversial execution of a woman said to be involved in the slaying of Abraham Lincoln. Redford took it on, he told USA Today, because "I'm attracted to the little-known story beneath the story you think you know." Portrayed journalist Dan Rather in Truth, a 2015 film that examines the controversial coverage by 60 Minutes of ex-President George Bush's military service. Was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2016. Announced in 2018 that his role in the upcoming crime comedy, The Old Man & The Gun would be among his last.

I remember once when I was young, and I was coming back from some place, a movie or something. I was on the subway and there was a girl sitting across from me and she was wearing this dress that was bottoned queer up right to here, she was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. And I was shy then, so when she would look at me I would look away, then afterwards when I would look back she would look away. Then I got to where I was gonna get off, and got off, the doors closed, and as the train was pulling away she looked right at me and gave me the most incredible smile. It was awful, I wanted to tear the doors open. And I went back every night, same time, for two weeks, but she never showed up. That was 30 years ago and I don't think that theres a day that goes by that I don't think about her, I don't want that to happen again. Just one dance?

Jeremiah Johnson
Can you skin Griz?
Butch Cassidy
Is that what you call giving cover?
The Sundance Kid
Is that what you call running? If I knew you were going to stroll...
Narration
Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length, I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening. Then in the Arctic half-light of the canyon, all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four-count rhythm and the hope that a fish will rise. Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of those rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs. I am haunted by waters.
Narration
My father was very sure about certain matters pertaining to the universe. To him, all good things - trout as well as eternal salvation - came by grace; and grace comes by art; and art does not come easy.
