I noticed the Casino finally got Burt Reynolds to come to the Dodge City event in Sept. I did send a letter to him last month about the 60th Anniversary at the Dodge House. I guess he got paid by the Casino to come out there. I wondered if he has contacted the forum at all. I also asked him to join us. Not sure if my letter influenced him any more than the other letters people sent but it is nice to know he will be there.
The only problem is if you do get Burt Reynolds on this board there will be many outsiders looking to talk to Burt Reynolds the movie star and not Burt Reynolds the cast member from Gunsmoke. Has that been a problem in the past with the Gunsmoke reunions or is this his first one?
I saw Burt Reynolds about 6 months ago. He looked very weak and feeble. He took short choppy steps and used a cane. I was with a friend who recognized him, I would Not have. I am only saying this because I am surprised he would travel any where.
I talked to the Dodge House today and they said something about how Burt may not come because he is sick or maybe someone else said it. It may be tentative based on his health. Oh, he evidently has been showing up to anime and comic conventions because he was on the anime show Archer. My seventeen year old daughter told me that. they evidently made fun of his movie Gator. She knew about that too.
I am not a Comic Con fan, so I did not attend the weekend festivities in Chicago. But Burt Reynolds did! I am attaching a link about his appearance that includes a video of his Q&A session. So it seems as if Burt Reynolds is trying to get out and promote his book. Hopefully this is another indication that he will indeed be at the 60th in Dodge! What a special event that would be - Quint, Thad, and Newly all together.
I am sorry that the link is so busy with ads and the filled sidebar. But if you ignore that, I thought the article was worth sharing. Glad to see that "Quint" is well enough to make it back to Dodge one more time!

Like I said, it may depend on his health. I think someone on the board said that. I knew he was promoting his book. Yes, it would be so exciting if the eye candy "boys" were there together. They all served the same purpose and did so in very different and interesting ways. Loved them all.
