Whenever I see The Longest Yard while scrolling through the channel guide I'm always hoping it will be the original but alas it ends up being the Sandler version....RIP Mr. Reynolds.

No matter who you were in the 70's you knew his name. That's powerful.

One of the few remaining greats of that era left.

RIP Bandit.

Got a kick out of this bit in one of the articles:

In John Boorman's Deliverance (1972), based on a book by James Dickey, Reynolds starred as macho survivalist Lewis Medlock, one of four guys from Atlanta who head to the wilderness for the weekend. Filmed by Vilmos Zsigmond along the Chattooga River near the Georgia-South Carolina border, it was an arduous production that Boorman shot in sequence.

"When I asked John why, he said, 'In case one of you drowns,'" Reynolds wrote.

He had good reason. When Reynolds saw test footage of a dummy in a canoe going over the falls in one scene, he told Boorman the scene looked fake. He climbed into the canoe, was sent crashing into the rocks and ended up in the hospital. "I asked [Boorman] how [the new footage] looked, and he said, 'Like a dummy going over the falls,'" Reynolds wrote.

It wasn't his most popular movie but, Stroker Ace is one of my favorite movies.

The chattooga is a intense river,very remote,no help.

Back in the eighties we had to sign in and sign out ,there are holes ,hydraulics they are called like at the bottom of a damn,that will hold you till they cut a tree to wash thru and get your dead wrinkled a ss out.

Most probably don't know he got started playing Indians at ghost town in the sky at Cherokee nc

Doing falls off building s in cowboy gunfights. Forget who saw him and got him west to play more Indian s in early movies.

Real bummer when I saw the news yesterday. Burt was the one guy that my mom told my dad...." Burt is the only man on Earth I'd leave you for ". Haha. He was definitely a legend in films when I was a kid. RIP Bandit.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.
