My favorite Burt movie has got to be the "Longest Yard" You even get to see some of his football skills from his days playing for the FSU Seminoles.

But this has got to be my favorite Burt movie cameo:

landcruiserbob: He was the real deal.

Sallie Fields provides an inside intimate evaluation of Reynolds.

"In an interview with the New York Times, Field expressed relief that Reynolds would never read her [new] memoir, including the way she described him as controlling and compared him to her abusive stepfather."

'This would hurt him,' she said. 'I felt glad that he wasnt going to read it, he wasnt going to be asked about it, and he wasnt going to have to defend himself or lash out, which he probably would have. I did not want to hurt him any further.'"

It would appear that being the real deal means all too human and male.
