FloridaÕs favorite son, movie star Burt Reynolds will be welcomed by Rosarian Academy and appear on their stage at the Picotte Fine Arts Center Saturday evening, Oct. 15 for a special fundraiser.
Prior to a showing of ReynoldsÕ hit movie ÒHooper,Ó there will be a 30 minute ÒQ & AÓ (question and answer), with questions submitted by the audience.
In a recent interview, Reynolds, who is well-known for his quick wit and self- deprecating sense of humor, said that he appreciates these opportunities to connect directly with his fans. ÒI never know what questions will be asked. Sometimes I think my fans know more about my life than I do. Anticipation keeps me on my toes.Ó
ÒHooper,Ó an action/comedy film released in 1978, was directed by ReynoldsÕ good friend, the late Hal Needham, and also stars Sally Field, Jan-Michael Vincent, Brian Keith, Robert Klein, James Best and Adam West. The film pays homage to stuntmen and stuntwomen who, at one time, were unrecognized and unappreciated in the movie industry.
