Smokey and the Ban­dit with­out a shadow of a doubt. Asim Kayani

Thanks to Burt I grew up with a com­pletely un­re­al­is­tic ex­pec­ta­tion of the ro­bust­ness and re­li­a­bil­ity of ve­hi­cle sus­pen­sion sys­tems, and the avail­abil­ity of women. Thanks Burt.

Alan Hill In Smokey and the Ban­dit – when he out­runs the cop car and hides be­hind the build­ing then looks at the cam­era and smiles. Pure cinematic gold. Pete Smith
