There was also a dramatic spike for “Hooper,” which now sits at #3 … while “Deliverance” is #6.
Even Burt’s book is burning up the charts … his memoir, “But Enough About Me: A Memoir,” is No. 1 on the books list. That’s an 80,537% increase.
As we reported … Burt died Thursday morning at a hospital in Florida. He was cast in Quentin Tarantino‘s Charles Manson film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” but a source told us Burt hadn’t shot his scenes yet. He was 82.
