Hollywood star Burt Reynolds dies, 82 Sad news indeed. RIP Bandit
The Bandit will always be remembered for his gentle humour, that cheeky grin and the way he made people smile and chuckle. Burt Reynolds being in a film was part of the reason I watched it and not many actors would make me do that. Another special character lost, and may the Bandit drive fast to the Pearly Gates.
Yikes He was brill in ‘Deliverance’. RIP.
I seem to remember him first in "Gunsmoke". But the Bandit was the real one he will be remembered for.
Sad to see him go. Deliverance and Boogie Nights for me - he should've got the Oscar for Boogie Nights and it remained his only nomination.
Never saw ‘Boogie Nights’. I must watch out for it
I never knew he was in Gunsmoke , although that is going back quite a bit.
I think he was the town blacksmith, but I was only a kid at the time, so might have got it wrong.
Probably best to fast forward just a bit.
