RIP Mr. Reynolds. I recall as a kid seeing the Longest Yard as my first memory of a Burt Reynolds movie. But my favorite Reynolds movie is the first Smokey and the Bandit. It was just a fun, yet well made movie all around with not only a strong performance by Burt Reynolds, but a fine comedic performance by the late Jackie Gleason. Oh yeah a cute as a button Sally Field too… A good cast all around I will say and the iconic black with gold trim Pontiac Firebird Trans Am with that ‘screaming chicken’ artwork on the hood.

My condolences to the Reynolds family and friends

What a great life lived. For me, my favourite Burt Reynolds movie has to be Semi Tough. Smokey and the Bandit coming in as a close second, with Gator third.
