    This Kino Lorber blu-ray has been on my radar for several years but has always been priced just out of reach. Finally picked it up on sale from BB w/ free shipping. The movie looks very good on this blu-ray disc, so you won't be disappointed there. There's just one 10 minute extra "Back to the Bayou" with Burt Reynolds that shares some interesting tidbits about the film and its success, though I wish it went a bit longer. I can recommend this blu-ray of a classic film

    White lightning is classic early 70s. It has Burt Reynolds with a long list of recognizable character actors. While the movie is still watchable you need to know that it is not the theatrical release but instead it's the edited for tv print. It has content trims and some dubbed over dialog. Could have moved up a star if it was not the edited version.

    A very cool action flick with Burt Reynolds. It is a good transfer to Blu Ray; there is only a 10 minute featurette as features.

    It is a typical Burt Reynolds movie from that era...not much for script or plot, but good car chases...never knew that cars could burn rubber on dirt!

    The kind of role Reynolds made his mark with for most of his career. Re-issued by Kino Lorber.

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