Costume designer BERNIE POLLACK first met Robert Redford in 1965 as an apprentice costumer on a small film called "This Property Is Condemned," co-starring Natalie Wood. It was an auspicious beginning for a relationship that has continued for more than two decades. Since then, Pollack has designed or selected the wardrobe for more than a dozen of Redford's motion pictures.
Pollack, whose older brother is director Sydney Pollack, earned his first costume designer credit in 1979 on "The Electric Horseman," after working on such Redford films as "The Sting," "The Great Gatsby," "All the President's Men" and "The Way We Were." He has since served as costume designer on "Brubaker" and "The Natural," which starred Redford, and "Ordinary People," which Redford directed.
Pollack has also had a rewarding working relationship with Dustin Hoffman, having costumed him in such films as "Tootsie," "Marathon Man," "Straight Time," and most recently "Rain Man," which featured Hoffman and Tom Cruise in matching suits, buttoned white collars and no ties. Pollack designed a new look for Sylvester Stallone in "Tango and Cash," which Stallone has repeated in subsequent films.
