Smokey and the Bandit (1977)

Smokey and the Bandit stars Burt Reynolds and Jackie Gleason in an outrageous comedy that boasts full-throttle laughs and high-velocity thrills. 

Reynolds is the Bandit, a king-of-the-road trucker hero who accepts the ultimate challenge: pick up a truck load of Coors beers in Texarkana – the closest place it can be legally sold – and haul it cross-country to Atlanta in 48 hours. The reward? $80,000! The result? The wildest series of car chases and crashes ever filmed in this hilarious all time box office smash!

Once described as a favourite film of Alfred Hitchcock (that’s right!), rediscover the original laugh-out-loud, enduring comedy that spawned a franchise.
