Smokey and the Bandit! These guys have epithets or "handles." Smokey Bear (Sherrif) and the Bandit (just like hermes). In the movie, these two interesting characters with lots of money make a bet with Burt Reynolds say he can't bootleg a load of beer across state lines for $80,000. So the Bandit (Burt Reynolds) adds to this deal sayin he'll need a speedy car, the transam. He gets his old trucker buddy, snow man, to get in on the deal. The bandit is the runner the trixter, like hermes, or the distractor so snow man can drive his illegal load across state lines. The movie is full of humor, as we were discussing the intro to tragedy, and mirrors Hermes. So I thought watching this movie again was entertainingly relevant.
