"All the people," "all OF the people"

What is the difference between (1) and (2)?
(1) all the people.
(2) all of the people.

˜Of' in (2) seems redundant. If not, what function does this ˜of' have?
If there is a situation where these two (1) and (2) are not interchangeable, what situation would that be?
