and Robert Redford
in Arthur Penn's The Chase (1966). Other noteworthy performances among his nearly three dozen screen appearances include: A Trip to Bountiful (1985); The Untouchables (1986); Missing (1982); Hal Ashby
's Looking to Get Out (1987) and in the cult favorite 1967 TV series, Man in a Suitcase.
One of Andy Garcia's favorite actors, a result of six previous collaborations beginning with The Mean Season (1985) The Untouchables (1986) When a Man Loves a Woman (1994) Steal Big, Steal Little (1995) Hoodlum (1997); Just the Ticket (1999) and The Man from Elysian Fields (2001), Bradford was a logical choice for continued collaboration with Garcia on The Lost City.
