The Bandit has gone 10-7. Thanks for some laughs along the way.

In telling of posing for a Cosmo centerfold, Burt Reynolds said, "It was really stupid."
1972 Cosmopolitan featured Burt as the first ever male centerfold.

Stupid is as stupid does, some say.

I don't remember him in any great movies even though his career spanned much of the time when America was great.

I liked Any Which Way But Loose and its sequels better, as a matter of fact.

Longest Yawn is overrated. Deliverance was OK. BURT BRONSON couldn't have played Reynolds' character much better.

Freaking awesome version of this song. The horns!

Listen to the whole thing, but skip to 2:15 and turn it way up if you must.

Mouse from Merced sez:

After Burt posed for Cosmo it opened the door for Playgirl and a host of other women's magazine of similar ilk... I still remember Burt's quote when asked to comment on the new magazine genre he "started"...

"Things got outta hand after me..."

His hosting of Saturday Night Live on April 12, 1980 is one of my all time favorites; truly lots of laughs.

My brother-in-law did work for him at his house in L.A., said he was a very good guy. My other bro-I-L worked with him in the film business and had the same opinion.

Loved his dog every bit as much as Elvis did,.



I loved both of them in this flick.

The dude could act, within his comfort range and, as they like to say, the camera loved him.
He had a presence, too. And he could laugh at himself,which for me is the highest kudo.
Bet he woulda been great to have a beer, or nine, with.
My bro had one of those TransAms. It could scoot! Ina straight line anyway. 🤡

Saw Burt in a Gunsmoke rerun a few years back and recognized him. I had no idea who he was when the originals ran.

As to the dog, I think it was Columbo's doing all the doing.
