ATLANTA (AP) -- Anyone who remembers the toothless hillbillies who sodomized Ned Beatty and terrorized Burt Reynolds and the other characters in "Deliverance" will be surprised to hear that the film is being celebrated by the people who live in the area where the movie was made.
The film may have made famous the line "squeal like a pig," but it also helped create a $20 million rafting and outdoor sports industry along the Chattooga River in the Georgia mountains. Residents are marking the film's 40th anniversary with a festival.
Ronny Cox who played "Dueling Banjos" with the boy on the porch will attend. There'll be a screening of Deliverance, a music festival, arts shows and a river cleanup.
