    The 78-year old actor was one of Hollywood's biggest and highest paid stars in the 1970s.
    He was forced declare bankruptcy with debts of $9.4 million in the 1990s and has struggled to sell his Florida mansion despite slashing the price.

    He knows he cant take these with him, but the money he gets for them may pay for something he can enjoy while he is alive.

    If somebody wants to bid on his pair of Ned Beatty's tighty whities from Deliverance, I hear they're already half off.

    That's the way I see it too. They're just things, and a lot of good they'll do him when he's homeless and has no place for them. They won't do him any good after he's dead either.

    That said, I don't know if his crap is worth enough to solve his current money issues. The Smokey and the Bandit jacket might be something a collector would pay big bucks for, not sure about the rest.

    This is sad. He must feel awful that he has to get rid of these items, I'm sure there are memories attached to all of them.

    But it he didn't pay his mortgage for two years?? I feel like my bank would be trying to evict me if I missed a payment or two!

    It's sad. It's also sad to see old pictures of Burt when he was attractive in his own way and what he has become after that awful plastic surgery. Let's also not forget that the stars of yesteryear made far less money per movie than todays celebs do. Even the shittiest sorriest excuse of an actor today makes tons more than the big, real, talents of the old days.
