This comprehensive cataloging of 14 years of research on Redford’s life—before, during, and after he was at the top of the heap as a sought-after lead actor—is unsatisfying for its lack of true insights into his character. Callan is nearly reverential toward Redford, having had singular access to the actor’s journals, notes, and correspondence, along with hours of recorded interviews. Mark Deakins’s straightforward narration is composed, layered, and sincere. But the work is overstuffed and makes digressions frequently. Deakins does his best to rise above the myriad details to portray a stubborn and tyrannical egotist who ultimately emerges as a gifted actor, director, and producer. Patient listeners will learn much about Redford’s life, career, and worldview. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
