Redford Praised By Guevara Family

Hollywood veteran ROBERT REDFORD has been hailed by the family of CHE GUEVARA, after making an "excellent" movie about the late revolutionary's life.

The 66-year-old - who acted as executive producer on THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES - travelled to Cuba on Friday (23JAN04) to show Guevara's widow, ALEIDA GUEVARA MARCH, and children the new movie.

And they were all impressed with the picture - which is based on the Marxist's trip to South America as a 23-year-old medical student.

March, who loaned Redford her late husband's diaries says, "The film is excellent."

And daughter CELIA says, "If you read the book Daddy wrote on his trip through Latin America, you will see that the film is very faithful to the original."
