"Tear up the highway with the Bandit (Burt Reynolds), a fun-loving, fast-talking trucker who takes on his craziest haul yet— delivering 400 cases of beer from Texarkana to Atlanta in just 28 hours. With Sheriff Buford T. Justice (Jackie Gleason) hot on his trail and eager to teach him some respect for the law, the Bandit joins forces with good ol' boy Cledus (Jerry Reed) and runaway bride Carrie (Sally Field). Gear up for huge laughs, pedal-to-the-metal action and some of the wildest car crashes ever filmed!"
This was one of the great car movies of the era, and one that I've seen countless times over the years - starting with viewings as a kid in the early days of the cable era. Having never seen it on the big screen, it looks like May will finally make that happen. Check out Fathom Events for theaters and showtimes.
