A “finely detailed and well-written” bio of Robert Redford.

Above, below, a few rare sexytime photos for Redford fans.

A book I’ll actually buy? Yup, at my local indie bookseller. Why? Because RR is, along with Paul Newman, Clooney, Pitt, that rare breed of celeb who devotes more than a little, more than the minimu, to supporting a better, kinder, greener world.

“Robert Redford: The Biography” by Michael Feeney Callan

Too seldom is the life of an actor of Robert Redford’s stature given such a finely detailed and well-written exploration.

For film fans, the simple message of “Robert Redford: The Biography” may be that his talents have been underappreciated. Starring in popular movies like “The Sting” and “Out of Africa” and smaller films like “Downhill Racer” and “The Candidate” hasn’t led to the artistic respect other actors enjoy. Nor has directing fine films like “Ordinary People,” “A River Runs Through It” and “Quiz Show” ranked him among top directors.
