Deliverance

Deliverance (1972)

Revealing mistake: When the mountain man is grinning at Jon Voight tied to the tree, you can see that his "missing" front tooth is actually painted black.

Revealing mistake: After Jon Voight has killed the mountain man and has tied a rock to his body so he can dump him into the river, you can see the "dead" man take at least two deep breaths right before he is rolled off the rock and into the water.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Lewis and Ed are in the canoe after setting up camp and Lewis is bowfishing while Ed is drinking beer, Lewis shoots a trout. You can clearly see the arrow hit the fish just behind its head in a close-up shot. When Lewis pulls the fish in, the arrow is through the middle of the fish's body.

Trivia: At the end of the film, the police officer advising Beatty and Voight to go away and not to come back is James Dickey, the screenwriter and author of the book the film is based on.

Trivia: Actor Billy Redden (who portrayed the inbred hillbilly banjo player) actually could not play the banjo at all. Despite training for the film, Redden's hand movements simply weren't convincing, so a local musician was hired to hide behind Redden and portray the left-handed fingerplay in complex banjo-picking shots. We only see the briefest snippets of Redden handling the banjo with his own two hands; however, when the iconic "Dueling Banjos" scene reaches a fever pitch, the left hand seen working the banjo frets is that of the real musician hiding behind Redden.

Question: What exactly happens to Ronny Cox? Does he get shot by the sniper, does he fall out of the canoe and drown, or does he commit suicide?

Chosen answer: Just like Burt Reynolds says. He clearly yells out "he was shot."
