Robert Redford Quote: “Listen. I work for the CIA. I am not a spy. I just read books! We read everything that’s published in the world. And we… we feed the plots – dirty tricks, codes – into a computer, and the computer checks against actual CIA plans and operations. I look for leaks, I look for new ideas… We read adventures and novels and journals. I… I… Who’d invent a job like that.” This was Robert Redford trying to explain to Fay Dunaway his reasons for kidnapping her as she was leaving a shop on the upper west side.
