My favorite movie off all time is Casablanca.
My second favorite movie of all time is Smokey & the Bandit. No joke.
If you've never seen it or if you haven't seen it in awhile, give it a try. It's hysterically funny, well constructed and what other movie includes dialogue about Brenda Lee and Stephen Sondheim IN THE SAME SCENE?!?
One of the stars of Smokey and the Bandit died on Monday, Mr. Jerry Reed. Instead of perpetuating the idea that he was just in these "Bandit" movies by posting one of my favorite scenes from the first film, I would rather you watch this clip.
This is Jerry Reed with Chet Atkins. Jerry is making his guitar wail by playing Georgia on My Mind and then he sings it so sweetly, so beautifully. This man was a great artist.
And watch the movie sometime. You'll see that he was damn funny.
