Out Of Africa [DVD] [1986]
1.  Out Of Africa [DVD] [1986] DVD ~ Meryl Streep
The list author says:
  "Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen)'s ode to Kenya, one of the profoundest love stories ever written by life itself ... and 100% pure Redfordness (never mind Finch Hatton was really an Oxford-educated Brit)."

All The President's Men [DVD]

5.  A River Runs Through It [DVD] [1993] DVD ~ Craig Sheffer

7.  The Great Gatsby [DVD] DVD ~ Robert Redford

Havana [DVD]
8.  Havana [DVD] DVD ~ Robert Redford
The list author says:
  "Redford & Pollack Take 7. A sumptuous drama set in the twilight days of Batista's Cuban regime; costarring Lena Olin & Raul Julia (uncredited; his own choice). It undeservedly flopped...but I love it!"

The Natural [DVD]
10.  The Natural [DVD] DVD ~ Robert Redford

The Way We Were [DVD] (1973)
11.  The Way We Were [DVD] (1973) DVD ~ Barbra Streisand

12.  Candidate [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] 
The list author says:

See buying options
Ordinary People [DVD]
13.  Ordinary People [DVD] DVD ~ Donald Sutherland

The list author says:
  "More proof of his qualities as a director & America's loss of innocence Part 2 (besides Watergate): The "Twenty-One" quiz show scandal. Brutally realistic but emphatic, too, plus outstanding actors!"

15.  The Horse Whisperer [DVD] [1998] DVD ~ Robert Redford
The list author says:
  "Redford & Pilgrim the horse... oh yeah, and Ms. Scott Thomas. (I love 'em both individually, but the pairing doesn't quite work for me - or maybe it's the topic?) Still, beautiful horse & nature pics!"
£3.60   Used & New from: £0.26
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (134 customer reviews)

The Milagro Beanfield War [DVD]
20.  The Milagro Beanfield War [DVD] DVD ~ Rubén Blades
The list author says:
  "Redford's directorial sophomore; a low-key story of corporate greed, community values and the life on the land, based on the novel by John Nichols. Long overdue to be re-released on DVD!"

21.  Spy Game [DVD] [2001] DVD ~ Robert Redford

Sneakers [DVD] [1992]
22.  Sneakers [DVD] [1992] DVD ~ Robert Redford

Up Close & Personal [DVD] [1996]
23.  Up Close & Personal [DVD] [1996] DVD ~ Robert Redford

24.  Hot Rock [DVD] [1972] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
