TCM Big Screen Classics Presents
Smokey and the Bandit
A Special 40th Anniversary Event
Celebrate the 40th anniversary of the action-packed film that cemented Burt Reynolds’ status as one of the biggest movie stars of the 1970s. Enjoy this high-octane film on the big screen with exclusive commentary from TCM Host Ben Mankiewicz.
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!
Run Time: 1 hour 45 minutes
