24 Cool Photos of Robert Redford in 1969

It was until 1969 that Robert Redford eventually broke out as a major Hollywood star, enjoying three successful films within the same year: Downhill Racer, Tell Them Willie Boy is Here, and the classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. LIFE photographer John Dominis spent a week with the legend-in-the-making, who was trying to keep both his career and private life under control, at his residences in Utah and New York. With his rising reputation as an actor, almost all of Redford’s time spent on business, even when he retreated to his home in the snowy Utah mountains.
