Thank you, Mr Redford, the journalist

My admiration for Robert Redford is because I sense that, underneath the successful actor, he really thinks like a journalist

And so Robert Redford, at age 81, is calling it a day. Well-earned retirement for a great journalist!

Journalist? This is the Oscar-winning male lead known for movie classics like The Sting (1973), All The President's Men (1976) and Out Of Africa (1985). Founder of the Sundance Institute and Film Festival.
