Burt Reynolds passed away this week.
I had the pleasure of working with him, as the assistant of Vincent Cirrincione, on what had to have been his worst movie, The Last Producer. It was the perfect example of how a great script makes its way through Hollywood to become a horrible movie. That said, Mr. Reynolds was very demanding of everyone around him, but not more than he was of himself. In addition to being an actor, director, and American icon, he was a dog lover.
