It was an excellent idea that were great friends with Robert Redford,your co-star from Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (1969) and The Sting (1973).

Fantastic performance in Butch Cassidy And The Sundance Kid (1969).

He was one of the most handsome men I have ever seen. When he was young, the films he made, he lit up the screen. Lucky are the women who had him. He was so dreamy, and masculine.

RahaJul 6, 2011

I really appreciate your loyalty ... like your wife as well ...

YouNeed2KnowJul 3, 2011

They just don't make talented, good looking men like this on film that much anymore. He and many others during his day are the lost greats.
