Smokey and the Bandit

Question: Who is the actress that plays the old lady that called herself the Good Witch of the North? Also, did she voice cartoons? I could swear her voice sounded very familiar.

Answer: Don't know if she did cartoon voices, but her name is Nora Meerbaum.

Question: What did the trooper mean when he said, "Didn't you know this ain't Saturday"? It always makes me wonder.

Answer: The trooper on the motorcycle had just landed in the water. In older days, the typical day to take a bath, wash hair, etc. was Saturday. The trooper in the car (once he saw the motorcycle trooper was okay and wet) just made a joke about him taking a bath.

Question: Does anyone know if the Trans AM and the truck used in the film are still around?

Answer: The original "Bandit" Trans am is kept at The Performace Car Museum, Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Question: When Bandit is getting the money for the run, he asks for a speedy car and Little Enos counts out the bills. Exactly how much was a 1977 Trans Am?

Answer: The base price for a 1977 Trans Am was around $5450. By the time you added the Hurst hatches (T-Tops), gold trim package, and CB radio, the final price was around $7000.

Question: Why is trucking Coors beer south of Texas bootlegging?

Answer: It wasn't south of Texas - it was east of the Mississippi River. Coors was not licensed to be sold in the east at that time (it, of course, is different today). Anyone carrying more than what would be considered for personal consumption (about 24 beers) would be in violation of the registration and licensing law. During prohibition, bootlegging was applied to those that made their own alcohol for distribution or use. After prohibition, bootlegging has been used to describe those people violating the laws for registration and licensing of alcohol. So, in the venacular of the time, carrying Coors beer east of the Mississippi River would be bootlegging.
