Man, if you remember him from the 70’s, he was something, a flashy, mustache-swaggering, macho man, that deep down you had a sense was making fun of his whole schtick.
While we all loved him in 1997’s Boogie Nights, his heyday was the 70’s & 80’s, in films like Smokey & the Bandit (all of ‘em), Starting Over, The Longest Yard, At Long Last Love, The Man Who Loved Women and Cannon Ball Run, today’s #ThrowbackThursday movie is another iconic film. Deliverance, the film with the scene that epitomized every guy’s worst nightmare. Starring Jon Voight, Ned Beatty in his debut, and Ronny Cox along with Reynolds, Deliverance, based on the book by James Dickey, was nominated for Best Picture and its direction by John Boorman. Burt, still boasting plenty of chest hair, must have felt nigh naked without his trademark mustache.
I couldn’t find a trailer but who needs it when you’ve got this clip featuring the famous Dueling Banjos scene?
