GATOR
1976, Park Circus/MGM, 115 min, USA, Dir: Burt Reynolds

Burt Reynolds directs and stars in this lively action sequel to WHITE LIGHTNING. As Gator McKlusky, he is blackmailed by federal agents to betray his friend - and local crime czar - Bama McCall (Jerry Reed). With an incompetent federal agent (Jack Weston) and a TV reporter (Lauren Hutton) following Gator’s every move, what follows are car and boat chases galore in the backwaters of the "good ol' boy" American South. Reynolds proves a natural in his feature debut behind the camera, getting terrific performances from such novice actors as C&W singer Reed.

To further muddy the waters, he meets a local artist named Jennifer who might be the one behind the trigger. Costarring Sondra Locke.
