Smokey and the Bandit III

Visible crew/equipment: This is the number one mistake of all time. When the sheriff is chasing the Bandit, they both drive into the stunt show and the Bandit is heading right for a burning wall. First, you see an inside shot then the shot changes to catch all the action, on the second shot of the Trans Am crashing through the wall you can see a Panavision camera [ yes it is that clear to even tell what kind of camera it is.] set up in the back of the car filming those shots.


Visible crew/equipment: When the Bandit stops at the biker bar to get some burgers, as he opens the car door you can see a set light on its stand fairly reflected in the door. This also is seen when he comes back out and opens the door again.

Visible crew/equipment: As the cop in the white car joins the chase, and tells Justice to back off, the camera looks at Justice. As he talks the lighting rig and remote camera rig are reflected on his shades.

Movie Nut

Continuity mistake: During the film, but mainly noticeable in the Buford/Bandit scene with the Sherrif crashing into ice, the wheels on Bandit's Trans Am change. Most of the time they are a solid black wheel, then they change into a gold wire-spoke alloys.

Question: Why did Burt Reynolds not reprise his roll as Bandit in this film?

Answer: A little obvious: the second film was a box office disaster, so Burt bowed out.
