Did You Know?
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
