Episode 110: Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

smokeyandthebanditThe movie that legitimized CB (and trucker) culture, wrecked Trans Ams but promoted their sales through the roof, and made Burt Reynolds a star! This episode begins the pairing that could be car race films, Burt Reynolds movies, or Hal Needham-directed films, with the #2 grossing movie of 1977, "Smokey and the Bandit!" Based on an idea director Hal Needham got while working as a stuntman on the film "Gator," this cross-country beer run stars Reynolds, Sally Field, Jerry Reed, Pat McCormick, Paul Williams, Mike Henry, and the imcomperable Jackie Gleason as Sheriff Buford T. Justice of Portague County! Plus, one of the catchiest songs ever written, that became a huge hit for Jerry Reed, "East Bound and Down" is the film's anthem! A triple "10-4" from the geeks for this film, but storm clouds are on the horizon... tune in next episode to find out more!
