wealthy brothers Pat McCormick and Paul Williams offer him a fortune to haul a pregnant elephant to the Republican National Convention in Dallas--and they want it done in a hurry. Jerry Reed is again along for the ride, Jackie Gleason reprises his role as the hot-tempered sheriff pursuing

more dismal follow-up, SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT--PART 3 in 1983.
