The Making of Deliverance

This making of film about Deliverance (1972) is an interesting snapshot of how films used to be promoted.

Lasting ten minutes, it blends a voiceover, B-roll footage and audio interviews with director John Boorman and author James Dickey, who has a cameo in the film as the sheriff.

One startling nugget of information revealed is that the film wasn’t insured.
