He was born a poor, black boy....

IIRC, his father was a milkman and his mother was a housewife, when Redford was born. They lived in a lower middle class neighborhood, of whites and hispanics in California. Then his father somehow became a corporate executive, I don't know how that happened. It was a big corporation, I don't remember which one, maybe an oil company. They had more money after that.
His mother died when he was in college. Supposedly, Redford's vision of Beth Jarrett was a representation of his father (and MTM's mother).

Redford's father died in 1991, not when Redford was in college.
I'm not sure what the statement "Yes, I'm aware of the original author, [R6]. I was referring to Redford's view of Beth's character as it related to his own family." actually means.
But Beth Jarrett was all Judith Guest's creation.

Yes. And? I never said his father died when he was in college.

Try reading it slowly, dear. That might have helped you catch what I wrote about his mother's death when he was in college. Or not, you never know.
[quote]But Beth Jarrett was all Judith Guest's creation.
Yes, in the novel - not on the screen. Judith Guest did not direct "Ordinary People" nor did she write the screenplay. That was done by Robert Redford, Nancy Dowd and Alvin Sargent. But hey, you know it all and have decided that I know nothing, so perhaps you have different information.
Lay it on me, honey.

|by www.goop.com||reply 19||10/16/2013|
Nancy Dowd and Alvin Sargent wrote the screenplay for "Ordinary People" with a lot of participation from Redford.
Sargent, the primary screenwriter, won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Nancy Dowd was uncredited? How sad. Buck would have got credit.

He does not wear a wig, despite the rantings of the DL's resident toupée troll.
Other than that, he is a supreme narcissist.

I sat behind him at Glenngarry Glenn Ross. It is not a toupee. (maybe in movies he wears one) but his hair that I saw was natural. Nobody would pay to look like that.

I believe Redford made up a lot in his bio like many stars do - he's middle class, not lower middle class. But when I see that raggy uncombed wig he wears these days, I wonder...

His father was a fisherman, his mama was a fishermans friend. He was born in the boredom and the chowder, so when he reached his prime, he left his home in the maritime, and headed down the turnpike towards New England, sweet New England.
|by www.goop.com||reply 31||10/17/2013|
Btw, in the recent NYTimes article, Redford said his hair COLOR is natural (Jesus!), he didn't say the hair was his. If he'll lie about the color...face it, neither men nor women have that much hair after age 60 let alone age 70.
In the new movie you won't see his "hair" wet and slicked back -- it's only wet and falling across his forehead. That's because it's a wig, not a toupee, a wig.
Somehow he thinks he looks good with it --unwashed, uncombed and always on his forehead. He must think it's "youthful."

His surviving son had a liver transplant and is still alive. He looks as old as his father, and it's not surprising, given his health problems.

FWIW, I know a few people who have worked with/for Redford over the past 30 years. They all say basically the same thing - Redford is vain, sometimes clueless and infuriatingly difficult to pin down. He's also scary-smart, very funny, a hell of a nice guy and absolutely sincere.
I have no idea what's going on with his hair these days - it's bad, seriously bad.

It means that actors and directors often see people they know in the characters they create, and base their characterization accordingly, whether or not those characters come from source material.
But you knew that, didn't you?

Huge stars are usually somewhat dim and clueless because they've been surrounded for years by people who only say YES to them.

R32, he was that way when he made Brubaker over 30 years ago. Same hairstyle. Critics at that time pointed out that if he had really been put in prison to root out corruption, that hair would have been the first thing to go. And it was his real hair at the time. He has a thing about his looks in that regard.

Wiki lists Redford as 5'9"
I saw this magazine cover in NYC over the weekend. It makes me want to grab that wig and rip it off his fucking head. If I were the director of this new movie, I would demand he wear a thinner grey one so he looked more like a real person rather than the male Joan Collins.
