    That DELIVERANCE scene is magical. Brotherhood of man, (brotherhood of music). No matter how different we are, we are the same. We bond. We share the same feelings. We can be one.

    And what makes that wonderful scene so great is it is juxtaposed against the sheer terror and utter savagery that comes for the next hour and a half of the movie. Man is an animal and what we do to each other would make even God cry. Quite different than the brotherhood in the "Dueling Banjos" scene. What a movie.

    I love how the "Dueling Banjo" melody is slowed down, and put in a minor key towards the ending river scenes.
    Now I gotta watch it again! ( on DVD)

    Yes. I am a big fan of movie scores and one would never expect anybody to say the score for DELIVERANCE is brilliant, but it is. It's sparse. Maybe ten minutes of music tops (and that's including "Dueling Banjos"); but what little that is in the film is very effective.

    Yeah, I might have to watch it again..even though I have seen it about twenty times. Have to say, when I got my surround sound system for my DVD player, everybody told me, "Oh, play STAR WARS" and stuff like that to get the most from your surround sound. But the movie that really made me love my surround sound system was, yup, DELIVERANCE. Whoever did the 5 channel mixing knew what they were doing. I was immersed in the forest. The surround sound places you right in the middle. Leaves were crunching in front of me, birds were whistling behind me, the river roaring was all around me... Great experience.

    I just grabbed an Eddie Cochran movie scene. Been reading a lot about him lately. About how he wanted to quit touring after the Buddy Holly crash and wound up going to Europe and dying in a car wreck.

    This movie absolutely contains the greatest scene featuring drums in movie history, when Elvin Jones shoots a man in a gunfight then sits down for a drum solo (at James Gang drummer Jim Fox's kit).

    (Rumor has it that they'd originally wanted Ginger Baker for the part, but it's good that Jones got the role since Baker probably would have actually shot someone.)

    Well, the greatest scene in movie history has a guitar in it, so I guess that would be it.
