Burt Reynolds' memorabilia stars in Julien's auction

Important memorabilia from the life and career of legendary Smokey and the Bandit actor Burt Reynolds will sell at Julien's Auctions in a dedicated two-day sale.

Deliverance canoe
The Deliverance canoe is an iconic piece of movie memorabilia at a modest price

The auction will run from December 11-12 in Beverly Hills, charting Reynolds' 60+ years on the stage and screen.

Among the highlights will be the canoe from Deliverance ($800-1,200) and the jacket Reynolds wore in Smokey and the Bandit II, which is valued at $4,000-6,000.

However, much of the sale is dominated by Reynolds' western memorabilia, including fine saddles from the renowned Edward H Bohlin Company, which the actor part-owned for a period in the 1990s.

His personal mounted parade saddle, known as "Big Burt", is expected to sell for $25,000-35,000, while another custom made saddle is valued at $30,000-40,000.

A large number of paintings and sculptures from top western artists also feature, with Manuel Carbonell's monumental Horse and Rider sculpture, commissioned for the entrance of the Burt Reynolds Jupiter Theatre in Florida, selling at $150,000-200,000.

Also starring is a stagecoach custom designed by Dolly Parton for Reynolds' high-profile wedding to Loni Aderson. Built in 1979, it is marked "The Burt Reynolds Horse Ranch" and has his "BR" monogram in several places. It's expected to make $10,000-20,000.

Another carriage that Parton gifted to Reynolds is valued at $3,000-5,000.
