Hollywood veteran Robert Redford is poised to spark controversy when he visits Cuba to meet the wife of infamous revolutionary ERNESTO 'CHE' GUEVARA.

The OSCAR winner shocked Tinseltown by meeting communist leader FIDEL CASTRO, friend of Guevara, in Cuba in 1988 - and was interrogated by US TREASURY DEPARTMENT agents upon his return to America.

However, Redford is heading back to Cuba on Friday (23JAN04) to show Guevara's widow ALEIDA MARCH his new movie THE MOTORCYCLE DIARIES - based on the Marxist's trip to South America as a 23-year-old medical student.

The movie received a standing ovation when it was screened at the SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL in Park City, Utah, on Saturday (17JAN04).
