    Synopsis


    Gator
    Having created the character of Gator McKlusky in 1973's White Lightning, Burt Reynolds reprises the role in the appropriately titled Gator. Once again, ex-convict McKluskey is strong-armed into helping the feds nab a dangerous criminal, who turns out to be an old high-school chum (Jerry Reed). He is aided and abetted by TV reporter Aggie Maybank (Lauren Hutton) and comedy-relief FBI agent Irving Greenfield (Jack Weston). Talk-show host Mike Douglas makes his film debut as a Jimmy Carter-style governor. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      This transfer of the Burt Reynolds action classic,"Gator" is superb,finally made available in it's Todd Ao 35 Anamorphic Widescreen 16x9/2:35:1 "Scope" aspect ratio{no cropping,pan-and-scan,full frame}which preserves the entire widescreen frame image from the-left-to-the-right at all times,it takes me right back to the original cinema experience I had when first seeing the movie in first-run.It is also the cleanest,brightest,sharpest,of all video transfers I have ever seen of this film.This was Burt Reynold's debut as a director.I highly recommend it to everyone.It includes the theatrical trailer{"White Lightning" has it's trailer},and part 2 of the Burt Reynolds movie making interview{part 1 is on "White Lightning" and covers the making of that film},since part 2 covers the making of "Gator".

      I remember seeing this as a kid. Thought it was entertaining then. Watching it now I would say the campy cornball humor around Burt Reynolds juxtaposed with the cruel villainous Jerry Reed character doesn't work.

      This is a classic action flick with Burt Reynolds. A good transfer to Blu Ray: the second 10 minute half of a featurette is the only special feature.

      I like Smokey and the Bandit. It's nice to see other good movies with Burt Reynolds.
