    [h=2]Happy accident?[/h]The legend on this one has it that the iconic dueling banjos scene in Deliverance was not planned, but happened when a boy standing off to the side during filming of the 1972 movie couldn't help himself from joining in on the banjo playing while watching. Truth is that it was all quite planned. Local boy Billie Redden was cast specifically for his look (though he is not inbred, autistic, or mentally retarded as has been implied in the movie). Redden couldn't play the banjo so another boy actually fingered the strings, reaching from behind him in a bit of clever camera play. The scene left such an indelible mark on viewers that when director Tim Burton was filming Big Fish in Georgia in 2003, he just had to have Redden in his movie.
