Rest in peace Bandit.

Moose said...

Fun actor, enjoyed a number of his movies.

I wonder if there are some blinds about his sex life that will get revealed.

IDon’tKnowHer said...

He was the answer to more than a few blinds.

RIP😥

Tuesdi said...

Loved him in Boogie Nights. RIP.
Yep - he is the subject of a few pretty unsavory blinds, though.

Humor Me said...

Rest in peace, Bandit.
Enty - let the reveals begin please.

I think videos of him are preserved down in Hefner’s bunker

Zebra Seasoning said...

Damn.

Brayson87 said...

It was his time.

J said...

He'll be missed. Very entertaining guy.

Flashy Vic said...

Both me and Sterling Archer are gutted. :(

Phelps said...

Sterling and Malorie Archer hardest hit.

Jimbonius said...

Shame he lost that land in Florida. He had built a mausoleum for himself and everything on the property. It's still there if you want to go search for it.

RIP Stroker Ace.

Jon said...

Smokey and the Bandit was EVERYTHING!

Spitbite said...

Nooooooooooooooooooooo! Crap, that's a shame. Smokey and the Bandit, Deliverance, Boogie Nights, brilliant.

And what a moustache!

What's grey and hairy and won't be worn this Xmas?

Burt Reynold's toupee

Sd Auntie said...

RIP! Deliverance is one of the greatest movies.

That's too bad :(

My favorite Burt Reynolds role was in Citizen Ruth. Underrated movie in general, but he was fantastic. Totally stepped out of his comfort zone.

Bitchysoisse said...

I liked him in a 1978 dark comedy with Sally Field and Dom Deluise called "The End".

Spider Rico said...

Go back to todays "Your Turn." This was a movie Star.
Thanks for the flicks Burt.

Radio Gunk said...

Artie Lange said on his podcast the rumor is a book publisher paid him for a tell all about all the Hollywood producers and directors he had to fuck to get famous and that it would be released immediately after his death to avoid lawsuits
Any truth to this, Enty???

Charles Crockett said...

HE HELPED SALLY FIELD STEAL THE OSCAR FROM BETTE.BETTE'S PERFORMANCE IN THE ROSE WILL NEVER BE EQUALED.DID THAT "TMJ" OR 3 OTHER LETTERS FINNALY GET HIM.HE LIVED LONGER WITH IT THAN ANYONE.

MountainMama said...

I posted in another thread as I didn't realize this was up. Anyone else remember him in Cosmo? He was such a handsome man and I loved his movies.

edasm said...

RIP old buddy. You were best of the generation.

Viking Song said...

Not a nice bloke in his younger, wilder years but he did mellow out in his older age. He gets my respect though for publicly saying Charlie Sheen deserves HIV. RIP Burt.

Sara, Making It Work said...

I also enjoyed him on Win, Lose or Draw with Bert Convy. Fun show.

BestMan said...

I lived in Jupiter FL in the early 80's. He could be magnanimous and rain pain on whoever depending on how the drugs were working. I did enjoy some of his performances.

Chase said...

One of my favorite Hollywood personalities. RIP Bandit.

Jennifer said...

From the days when there were movie stars.....

Funny, I didn't think of him in today's Your Turn. But he's an actor i heard my late grandma and my parents talk about.

RIP Mr. Reynolds

Ponzi said...

Sweet dreams, Reynolds. Great actor, great icon.

parissucksliterally said...

Remember when he and Loni were all over the tabloids every week?

Had some great movies. Glad his suffering is over.

mike m said...

RIP Paul Crewe, one of the best movies EVAAAAHHHH!

Guesser said...

SpiderRico,I agree. I hope it's true about the book. Burt could be a nasty SOB, and maybe for good reason. And yes,for better or worse,this is a real movie star.

Madame Debauchery said...

R.I.P. Gorgeous man! Guess Happy Jack is next! sigh

Guesser said...

@parissucks, sadly,I can remember when he was married to Judy Carne. And the Sally Field Gossip!

Alf Landon said...

Is Alfie Wise sill alive?

Weekittylass said...

I need to go watch Turd Ferguson. Burt was the man.

SteveD said...

It's funny, because it's bigger than a regular hat.

Low Key said...

Lol my mom had that Cosmo stashed away... not well cuz I found it.

William Lawrence said...

Smokey and the Bandit was Alfred Hitchcock's favorite movie.

Tricia13 said...

I agree

Tricia13 said...

This .
His appearances on talk shows like Carson were legendary, and is unapologetic, straightforward persona so refreshing amongst all the phonies.

I have an anecdote or two (via my uncle who was friendly with him/ younger by 10 years or so). I’ll have to ask him to tell me one again... definitely an original

Glitter said...

Yes, I remember the Cosmo centerfold. I was a teen and I saw it at my older sister's. It caused quite a sensation at the time.

Allie Gator said...

I liked him in Gunsmoke.

News said...

Charisma is everything!

MissyPab said...

Good actor and funny Carson guest. RIP. We will miss you

mud said...

he did the self-deprecating tongue-in-cheek thing as well as anyone ever has. and i don't care if he thought it was one of his biggest mistakes-i was a big fan of the cosmo spread. i first crushed on him when he was on gunsmoke. r.i.p. burt reynolds.

Skyler the Weird said...

Always enjoyed his movies no matter how dopey. He was our generation's Dewayne Johnson.

Spiffypaws said...

I live in Jupiter Fl. Know a couple of people that worked for him. They all say he was a wonderful guy. He was admitted to a Palm beach gardens hospital a few weeks ago under an assumed name.

SarcasticBimbo said...

My favorite movie of his was always Hooper. Him and Jan-Michael Vincent in one movie? Me-yow.

RIP Sonny Hooper, you will always be my favorite Hollywood stuntman.

Turitella said...

I had such a crush on him. I came across a gif of the Cosmo not long ago. RIP, Burt.

More Cowbell said...

I loved Burt. He always reminded me of my dad. Super,-handsome, the "stash," and funny. RIP.

a beautiful virago named hope said...

Really sad news. He was such an entertainer.

Watergirl said...

I'm surprised the news reports haven't mentioned that centerfold. It was a big deal back in the say.. meaning early 70's

Hayley said...

I liked when he fought with Marc Summers of early 90's Nickelodeon fame on the Tonight Show

GentleBreeze said...

Oh, yes. I remember the magazine centerfold. My sister had a copy reserved. He was a Florida boy born and bred, btw.

BRAD PITT said...

Burt was soon to play George Spahn

George was born February 1889 and he died September 1974

Burt Reynolds was born in February and he died in September

TC said...

Loved his movies, he will be missed.

mercyprosperity said...

What an Icon.
I recall trudging to the movie theater thru the snow (or rain.. whatever... we always had to walk) every weekend. We saw quite a few of Burt's films. Smokey and the Bandit. The End. Hooper.
I also remember him guest hosting Johnny Carson's show. Apparently he was very good at it, because my parents said so.
Burt and Sally Field were the "It" couple, in the late seventies.
Rest well, Bandit

Yes it was!! On another previous blind some people questioned him as an a+. Burt Reynolds Is a permanent A+. Huge star. My personal favorite was Evening Shade, loved that show.

HushHush said...

I loved his movies. Smokey and the Bandit- corny in age of the Godfather, but I was a kid who loved dinkies. The Trans-Am with the fire chicken on the hood is a classic. Feel the same way about Swatche Watches from the '80's too.
Burt signed a multi movie deal way back when (80's?) and had the studio fund a dinner theatre in Florida as part of the deal. His theatre helped many artists, and many careers. Greatness isn't just your own performance, it's what you do for others around you!
