Burt Reynolds Is Dead

Burt Reynolds Is Dead

I’d be hard pressed to pick a movie star that I liked more than Burt Reynolds in the 70’s (ok, maybe James Gardner but he was more a TV star to me).

Very sad to hear today about the passing of Burt Reynolds at 82.

Smokey and The Bandit, and Cannonball Run were staples of my movie favorites. The Longest Yard, Deliverance, The Last Movie Star the list of great movies with Burt Reynolds in them goes on and on.

I read some articles today that say he was a “pop” actor, and seemed to look down on his movie choices. I had to laugh at the poor writer of those pieces, if someone can’t watch the Smokey and the Bandit, or Cannonball Run and appreciate their greatness, I can have nothing but pity for them.
