What it is: The Bandit and the Snowman, two bootleggers with a Pontiac Trans Am and a semi, make a bet to smuggle 400 cases of Coors Light from Texas to Georgia in 28 hours, all while contending with runaway brides, bikers and the overbearing Texas Sheriff, Buford T. Justice.

Why we're showing it: The second best-selling film of 1977 (second to a little known film called Star Wars), Smokey and the Bandit is a crowd-pleasing action-comedy starring Burt Reynolds, Sally Fields, Jerry Reed and Jackie Gleason. It features numerous car crashes, fisticuffs and bootlegging thrills, while highlighting the easy, wise-cracking chemistry of Reynolds and Fields.
