    But he outlived Smokey!

    Burt had some great movies in his day.

    Loved the first Smokey and the Bandit, and he was great in Deliverance, The Longest Yard, and of course Boogie Nights also. A legit Hollywood legend.

    My sister met Burt and Loni in an elevator in Vegas. She said they were both very friendly people.

    We watched Cannonball Run with the kids last weekend. I commented to the wife that the majority of the cast had passed, except for Burt,Jackie and a few others. Sad to see another Hollywood legend go.
