I saw this movie in the theater with my Daddy when I was in the 3rd grade. I came out to idolize Burt so much that I told people my nickname was "Gator'. Okay, give me a break, I was only eight years old! Besides there is no one like Burt. How many men can woo the ladies, be tough, laugh at people , and then laugh at himself? Not too many. "Gator" is an unusual piece of film noir for B-Movie lovers. I think it should be labeled as one of the All time Southern Cult films. It has some decent action scenes, romance, dark humor, and startling and unsettling violence. For instance, Jack Weston getting mugged in the alley was rather unpleasant. It wasn't a fair fight considering a behemoth and a dude with a crow-bar. Jerry Reed's little sawed off 12 gauge proved nasty at times. Alice Ghostley getting fried in the house was pretty sad. So the film does have some real violence. But it was effective. Jerry Reed brilliantly plays a villain. The way film villains should be played, cool, sleazy, charming, alternating with elusive viciousness. Reed is one southern rogue who should have been a more prolific actor. As a kid I thought Lauren Hutton was absolutely gorgeous. Of course this flick isn't refined artistic film making. Nor is it good writing. But it works! Somehow this lowbrow story works and makes for good late night entertainment.
