Cool Cats!

The new Spanish-language Will Ferrell film, Casa Mi Padre, reminds me of this old Burt Reynolds classic hombre flick. (ImpAwards)

Monday Poster Smackdown!

Here’s the Burt Reynolds classic, The Cannonball Run by two movie poster artist heavyweights…Drew Struzan (USA) vs. Clement Hurel (France). Vroom, vroom!

No Smoking For The Bandit.

Upon hearing of Burt Reynolds‘ recent heart surgery (and expected full recovery!), I got a little wistful recalling some of his more popular movies from the 70’s and 80’s. Other than Clint Eastwood, I can’t think of another movie star who was featured in so many cool posters — if not, entirely successful movies. And I’m not talking about the macho, rugged, respectable Deliverance Burt or The Longest Yard Burt — I mean the funny, goofy, cheesy Burt from Paternity (by of my faves, Birney Lettick) and Stroker Ace…Get well, Burt. We love ya!
