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
When they are broken down and they are chatting at the back of the pickup, they are shown in profile with Halsey in the background. Past Halsey, deeper in the background, there is a constant stream of vehicles on what is obviously a major thoroughfare. Then the camera pans to a long shot showing them sitting in the rain. This long shot also shows the surrounding countryside and they are on an isolated dirt road with no major thoroughfare around. See more
