Sally Field (left, as Carrie) and Burt Reynolds (as Bo Darville, the 'Bandit) zoom along in a Pontiac Trans Am in this scene from the 1977 film Smokey and the Bandit. The film, directed by Hal Needham, starred Burt Reynolds as a bootlegger organizing an illegal cross-country beer delivery while joined by Fields as a runaway bride. Those '70s film plots! Sally Field was born in 1946, so she turned 31 the year this film was released. Reynolds, born in 1936, was 10 years older.
