This week we’re paying homage to the late, great Burt Reynolds, who passed away earlier this month, with one of his most famous roles. But we’re also celebrating the start of football season with a gridiron classic.

The Longest Yard, directed by Hollywood legend Robert Aldrich, further cemented Burt Reynolds’ movie star status while making a killing at the box office.
