Exactly 30 years after a 22-year-old college student who was dating actor-director Robert Redford's daughter was discovered dead from a gunshot wound to the head, Colorado police believe they may be one step closer to making an arrest in the cold case.
Boulder police issued a statement Wednesday saying they're looking for Thayne Smika, who is still being sought after a murder warrant was issued for his arrest in 2010.
“I was not into shared soul searching,” the superstar confesses. I like to face the issues alone.” The book, simply titled Robert Redford, offers a fascinating insight into the actor’s mind, as much for what it does not reveal as for what it does.
It represents the way Redford, 73, hopes to be seen by the world, disclosing as much – or as little – as he could bring himself to expose.
The first film that Redford directed, Ordinary People (1980), was one of the most critically and publicly acclaimed films of the decade, winning four Oscars including Best Picture and Best Director for Redford. He starred in Out of Africa (1985), which was an enormous critical and box office success, and won seven Oscars including Best Picture.
He released his third film as a director, A River Runs Through It, in 1992.
It was the heartbreak of Robert Redford’s life, a tragedy that forever altered his psyche, plunging him into a depression that he only escaped by immersing himself in acting.
