Trivia

In Robert Redford's biography, he called Little Fauss and Big Halsy "the best script of any film I've ever done." He was, however, somewhat less than thrilled with the film when it did not live up to its expectations at the box-office. However, when the film premiered on television around the time Redford was shooting All the President's Men (1976), he confided in Alan J. Pakula that he resented its television broadcast because, after years of successful films, he was less than enthusiastic about Little Fauss and Big Halsy, which he considered a stain on his filmography. Pakula told Redford that the film showcases one of the best performances the star had ever given, stating that his performance in it was "the last unself-conscious revelation of the actor's real-life edge." The film is also Redford's son Jamie's favorite of all his father's films. See more »

Surrealist grab-bag...engineered to be offbeat
18 February 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

A genuinely odd, surreal jumble of visual ideas which probably looked extremely puzzling on the printed page; just what drew Robert Redford to the project, one may never know. Sidney J. Furie directs this knockabout journey of an egotistical motorcycle racer taking a milquetoast juvenile under his wing; the kid looks up to this anti-hero, and eventually begins to ape his amorality. Disjointed and off-putting--though for some, the sight of Redford disrobing, about to disrobe, or having been disrobed might be enough to warrant attention. Lauren Hutton gets naked too, however all the sexy flashes are just teasers for the prurient-minded; there simply is no story. Perhaps Furie was making an esoteric comment about feckless wheelers and their flock circa 1970. If true, then this pre-Blank Generation approach backfired, as the film was not a success. *1/2 from ****
