How well do you remember "Smokey and the Bandit?" Take this quiz to find out.
What do you remember most about the 1977 film, "Smokey and the Bandit?" Is it Burt Reynolds' mustache? Is it the 1977 Pontiac Trans Am? How about Sheriff Buford T. Justice's colorful use of the word "sumbitch"? If you can't decide between them, you are probably a true "Smokey and the Bandit" aficionado.
In case you have forgotten some of the details, "Smokey and the Bandit," released in 1977, was a blockbuster motion picture that starred Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, Jackie Gleason, and Jerry Reed. The film was originally planned as a low-budget B movie, but Reynolds' interest in the starring role made producers up the budget from $1 million to just over $4 million, and it's a good thing they did. The movie earned more than $300 million at the box office, second only that year to "Star Wars." Reed himself, already an established country singer when he starred in the movie, penned and sang the title song, "East Bound and Down," and is still covered by musicians today.
