“Squeal Like A Pig!”

It is one of cinema’s most iconic lines. And one of film’s most intense moments of all time. I just spoke to someone who didn’t know even know that “squeal like a pig!” was from a movie – and certainly didn’t know it was from one of the greatest films ever made:

Deliverance!

“Deliverance” was a cultural phenomenon from the moment it was released in 1972 – a shocking story of friendship and survival – and now there is a fascinating oral history about the film, how Marlon Brando and Jack Nicholson were set to star in it, and the on-set fight between the Director and Author!

  1. Always loved this film. The natural setting, beautiful and unforgiving combined with scary assailants, one who plays a mean banjo (one of my fav scenes of all time) is a survival story that works.

  2. I did love that film. I was 20 when it came out, and have never forgotten the ‘duelling banjos’ scene, or the music. I never got Reynold’s terrible toupees though. With all that money around, he could have at least had better hair!
    Best wishes, Pete.
