We were all saddened last night to hear of the death of Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds. The star of one of our favourite ever film series’, Smokey And The Bandit, the wisecracking movie heartthrob and Oscar nominee died in a Florida hospital at the age of 82 with his family at his side. The moustachioed megastar had undergone heart bypass surgery in 2010. He shot to fame in 1972’s Deliverance, and became a Hollywood legend with his roles in Smokey And The Bandit, The Cannonball Run and Boogie Nights.
