Paying homage to `Bandit'

Postcard From Spring Training

March 09, 2007|By PETER SCHMUCK

The Orioles play at Roger Dean Stadium in Jupiter a total of six times this spring, which should provide ample opportunity for me to sneak away and visit the Burt Reynolds & Friends Museum.

The museum, which is located on U.S. 1 in Jupiter, is a shrine to the television and movie star who had such terrific range that he dated Oscar winner Sally Field and was married to comedienne Judy Carne and television actress Loni Anderson.

Burt's a pretty good actor, too, with well-regarded roles in Deliverance and Boogie Nights as well as the lovable rogue he played in several Smokey and the Bandit movies.

I'm particularly eager to go there to see if they have his original face.
