REDFORD HOPES FILM WILL MAKE PRESERVING WEST IN VOGUE

Movies can set fashion trends, says Robert Redford, and he hopes the one he's directing will make it fashionable to preserve the beauty and wilderness of the West.

Redford was in Maudlow, Mont., this week filming "A River Runs Through It," a tale of the West based on the Norman Maclean novella. He said in an interview he hopes the film will make it fashionable to save the West from overdevelopment."I've never believed that film changes anything political," Redford said. "It changes fashions."
