4. The writer and director died recently

Hal Needham the legendary stuntman, stunt coordinator, and director is dead. He directed Smokey and the Bandit, Hooper, The Cannonball Run (I and II). The former paratrooper who was the world’s highest paid stuntman and who spent years working with Burt Reynolds died at the age of 82 from cancer.

...

Needham was Reynolds’ stunt double for years and after he wrote the screenplay for Smokey and the Bandit, Reynolds, who starred in the picture, hired Hal to direct the 1977 action/comedy film. He also directed the immediate sequel as well as a further 16 films, which included TV movies and one episode of the television program B L Stryker.

I have a friend who played with him for years who said that Jerry was a strange, but wonderful cat.
