Lawyer Morgan Ryan was mentioned by David Hickie in the Sydney Morning Herald in 1985 for “his behind-the-scenes maneuvers in some of the most sensational racing cases of the 1950s and 1960s.” “Redford takes the screen better than anyone I`ve ever seen,” Reitman said during filming. “To compete with him on screen, you need someone of great substance. You need another star. And movies where you don`t have anyone with the strength of women like Streisand and Fonda or men like Hoffman and Newman are erased from the screen.
