Burt Reynolds, Hot Line: The Letters I Get... And Write!, 1972

Flickr-Userin Charm and Poise hat ein olles Buch aus den 70s über Fan-Briefe an Burt Reynolds und seine Antworten darauf hochgeladen – ein einziger, großer Knaller. Oh, the 70s.

From Burt Reynolds, Hot Line: The Letters I Get ... And Write!, 1972. This is truly a strange book. Both the letters and Burt's answers are swingin' 70s in outlook and jargon. From the opening page: "Burt Reynolds is America's newest Sex Symbol, star of movies, TV, stage, and Cosmo centerfolds. Passion flower to eager femmes from 8 to 80, he is a virile, witty, gracious, warm, lovable, hotter'n firecrackers hunk of male who likes nothing better than reclining his fabulous fanny on bearskin rugs, rapping with his fans and their endless stream of letters."

Hier der Brief einer Emma an den guten Burt:
