I didn't know that today was Robert's ( we're on a first name basis evidently) birthday until I saw it on World News just now. Robert Redford is 75 today, Thursday, August 18th. Wow....Like his buddy Paul Newman, this man ages like fine wine.
I have previously posted on how much I liked Jeremiah Johnson. There are so many of his characters that left us ladies a little weak in the knees. What woman didn't fall a little in love with "Hubbell" in The Way We Were, " Jay Gatsby" in The Great Gatsby, or "Denys" in Out of Africa. My husband has long said that if I were given the choice between him and Robert Red, Indecent Proposal style, he would still be sitting on that bench and I would be dancing in that big house with Robert's "John Gage". Yesterday I posted a question: What movies have made you cry? My Daughter # 3 came up with one that I had forgotten. Robert Redford and Michelle Pfeiffer in Up Close and Personal. Oh, my gosh. Pass the whole box of Kleenex please.
This video is the Celine Dion theme " Because You Loved me". There was only Spanish movie trailer available so here they are, more Celine than Robert.
So many great movies, All the President's Men, Three Days of the Condor, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid, The Sting, and The Natural. I can go on and on and I think I just did.
Thank you Mr. Redford for your amazing body of work and for being so darn handsome to watch as you do that work.
