    The Bandit will always be remembered for his gentle humour, that cheeky grin and the way he made people smile and chuckle.:love30::snorky: 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.

        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.

              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.
