The unhappy time has arrived to bid farewell to America’s favorite reckless driver. Let’s lift a glass together to Burt Reynolds and celebrate an American movie icon.
Smokey & the Bandit is basically a movie about a long-distance beer run. Its appeal was driven almost solely by the charm and sex appeal of one Burt Reynolds…and a rumbling Trans Am! (a concept that played so well that 18 months later, The Dukes of Hazard hit the airwaves with roughly the same concept)
Ok, that’s not entirely accurate. Sally Field brought plenty of charm herself, and Jackie Gleason plays a perfect clumsy yokel-sheriff.
But Reynolds created an American icon in Bandit. The same film with a lesser lead would likely have slipped into obscurity, but who doesn’t LOVE Burt Reynolds playing Bandit!
Been awhile? Here’s a quick review:
Bandit and Cledus are two truck-driving southerners who accept a dare from big-shots Big and Little Enos to pick up a truckload of beer from Texas and return it to them within a specified amount of time. Picking it up is simple enough, but as they are leaving Texas, Bandit unwittingly picks up Carrie, a hitchhiking bride-to-be who just left her groom, Junior, at the altar. Junior, however, is the son of Sheriff Buford T. Justice. And when Buford and Junior discover what has happened, they go on a “high-speed pursuit” across the Southeast to catch the bandit. – From IMDB
