Robert Redford opened a retrospective showing of his films at a Moscow theater Tuesday with praise for the effects of glasnost on the Soviet film industry. “Obviously this is a very important time for our countries,” Redford, 51, told the audience at Moscow’s Oktyabr theater. “And I believe that film is a very powerful tool to translate differences of opinion and points of common interest; and, for that reason, I support glasnost in both American film and Soviet cinema.” The actor-director is best known in the Soviet Union for his role in the 1973 spy thriller, “Three Days of the Condor,” which continues to be shown in Soviet theaters.
