On Episode 127 of the RETROZEST podcast, Curtis continues the celebration the 45th anniversary of SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT (which was started on episode #101)! This film is a 1977 American road action comedy starring Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, Jackie Gleason, Jerry Reed, Pat McCormick, Paul Williams and Mike Henry.
Assisting Curtis in this endeavor is a very special guest; CAYE JONES BARNETT! Caye portrayed “Caye Snow”, the eldest daughter of Cledus “Snowman” Snow. She was chosen for the part because the house (exterior and interior) which was used as the home of Snowman’s family on North Avenue in Jonesboro, GA was actually where Caye and her family lived at the time! She is now a semi-regular guest for East Bound and Down: The Ultimate Smokey and the Bandit Tribute. Check out their Website and their Facebook Page.
Additionally, Mr. Retrovere shares this week’s Retro News segment.
