Ned Beatty: He had the hardest part

Parody song:



The actual scenes (in two parts) :                                                                                                                                                                        




Some people loved the movie Deliverance while others hated it. It is one of my favorites and I watch it from time to time. The book is excellent. James Dickey, the author, was very concerned that the movie would not follow his book. In actuality the script is very close and at times verbatim.  While other parts of the book are very explicit in describing certain aspects of the story, the the scene above occurs, but it is not nearly as graphic as the movie version. The parody was sent to me by a friend and pretty funny. Enjoy and pass along.

  1. I don't get it. What was so funny about it? What were you on when you posted this? The funny part starts when one of the homos gets an arrow thru his neck.

    1. The parody is pretty funny Gregory. Watch the parody. It is a song sung to the old Tom Petty song "The Waiting Is The Hardest Part".

  2. I've often thought that Beatty deserved an Oscar for that performance. It took a lot of dedication to craft to do that scene, especially given the time period.

    1. There should have been several nominees for that film. Beatty did an excellent job. Nothing like that had ever been done by Hollywood up until that time. Sure, he will always be remembered as "that guy", but Beatty went on to become a very successful actor in his own right. He did a bang up job in another Burt Reynolds film of that era starring as corrupt sheriff, J.C. Conner in "White Lightning".

  3. I remember this film was a reminder to those so inclined to never leave home unarmed, especially if you were tromping around in the woods in some southern redneck state where the family reunion is a great place to meet girls....shoot first, ask questions later....yessiree, some of the trash hollywood puts out does contain some real life lessons....
