So "antsy" Robert Redford couldn't handle an 18-week African location shoot for "Out of Africa" for a purported $6 million 'cause "he would have gone nuts" ("Pollack's 'Africa' Adventure," by Jack Mathews, Dec. 8).
Possibly he could free-up some of that energy for his performances, which he usually "attacks" with the same verve one associates with lying-in-state.
On second thought, why tamper with success? This "bundle of nerves" has ridden phlegmatic all the way to super stardom. At his price, the market is obviously bullish on inertia.
