    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I recently picked up a DVD copy of Cannonball Run II (1983) for $5 in shrink wrap. Not the greatest movie ever made, but it reminded me of what a great light entertainment star 'ol Burt was. Let's honor his work while he is still alive.[​IMG]

    Stroker Ace was nice, particularly Loni Anderson in her bra and panties.

    Great Charlie Daniels theme song, too.

    I'm a big fan of those dumb Burt Reynolds comedies.

    Movies like Smokey and the Bandit, Cannonball Run, Hooper, Starting Over, Semi-Tough, Stroker Ace are just good fun.

    Cannonball Run II is really like the last of the Rat Pack movies. You've got Frank, Sammy, Dean and even Shirley MacLaine back together for the last time.

    Plus I love the outtakes with the credits.

    My favorite was when he would guest host for Johnny Carson in the late 70's. He was funny and silly while having this macho image. The combination was highly entertaining.

    Have you seen "˜The End'?

    I recently saw him in Aldrich's "˜Hustle'. Not a bad looking guy. Shit film.

    There's only one thing that stopped this movie getting an Academy award...politics![​IMG]

    Although it is a very, very, very crowded and distinguished field, I think Burt Reynolds is unquestionably the Florida State University's finest alumnus.

    Clint with Burt in better times, January 1978. Six years later the two teamed up to make City Heat, at that point in their careers both had made exactly 50 films. In a much later interview Clint said he and Burt both went for movie studio auditions in the '50s. The studios didn't like Clint because of the squint, they didn't like Burt because of his teeth. Clint joked that Burt thought he had the upper hand because at least he could get his teeth fixed! [​IMG]

    In American Rebel: The Life of Clint Eastwood Clint talks about how at the time Burt was his equal, but some really bad injury stalled Burt's career.
