I found a photo of Burt presenting. It's from the 1972 paperback [bold]BURT REYNOLDS - Hotline: The Letters I Get... and Write[/bold] and contains several interesting pages of beefcake photos.
When I was ten, my mother bought a copy at the corner drugstore (which I of course read) and like the title implies, it's a compilation of endearingly saucy if not outright salacious fan mail from early 70s flyover women [italic]and[/italic]a few men. This site link also has the rest of the photos from the book with a few sample pages of several letters that are in the book. Here are two that I found amusing.
[quote]My dear Mr. Reynolds,
[quote]I am sure you receive hundreds of fan letters daily. However, I assume my letter is unique in that I am a gay male. I hope this doesn't turn you off. I can think of no one who is more deserving of all the recognition you have been getting. Brother, you really turn me on! I would give anything for one hour with you. Please answer. Yours for the asking.

[quote]Hi, Sensuous Man!
[quote]Here's the situation: I am receptionist/secretary for the Kentucky State Department of ________ and about a month ago I wrote you a very warm letter. I sort of hinted at the good time you could expect if you ever came to Frankfort and looked me up. I also enclosed a snapshot of myself so you could see just who you'd be getting into, if you'll pardon my Swahili. You'll have to admit I got some points going for me.
[quote]Knowing what a red-blooded hunk of stud you are, I thought sure you'd be taking me right up on my invitation. Every day for the last month when I come back from lunch I ask my relief, "Did Burt Reynolds call while I was out?" The answer is always "No&mdash much to my embarrassment. What would a girl have to have to get a rise out of you? (Again pardon my Swahili!) Okay, you don't have to pay me a visit. But can't you least give a girl a call so she can get rid of her red face?
The problem, dear Bev, is that I might not be "up" to you. (Yes, I too speak Swahili.) You're probably more girl than I could [/italic]handle. [italic]You do indeed have some points going for you&mdashtwo of them are nothing short of outstanding. I mustn't call. I wouldn't do anything to "get rid" of that pretty face, no matter what color it is.[/italic]
