I watched the end of Deliverence the other night, and I have always wanted to know...at the end, when they find their friend in the water...how did his arm get over his shoulder like that? (I know he's dead in the movie)-but in real life-it either had to be fake...but I looked and looked at him, and thought it sure didn't look it...or he was double jointed...because there's no way he could do that.

I saw this recently on Blu-ray. Great film, with tons of memorable quotes.
The transfer to Blu-ray is very good -- the PQ & SQ are far better than could be expected.
Film: 8.5/10 PQ:7 SQ:7
[From inside the haycart] Inga: Hallo. Vould you like a roll in ze hay? [Dr. Frankenstein stutters] Inga: It's fun. [She begins to roll in the hay] Inga: Roll, roll, roll in ze hay.
Igor: Dr. Frankenstein... . Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: "Fronkensteen." Igor: You're putting me on. Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No, it's pronounced "Fronkensteen." Igor: Do you also say "Froaderick"? Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: No... .”Frederick." Igor: Well, why isn't it "Froaderick Fronkensteen"? Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: It isn't; it's "Frederick Fronkensteen." Igor: I see. Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: You must be Igor. [He pronounces it ee-gor] Igor: No, it's pronounced "eye-gor." Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: But they told me it was "ee-gor." Igor: Well, they were wrong then, weren't they?

...and it also featured an early acting performance by a young Paul Mazursky, who became a leading writer-director in the late 1960s to today. His filmmaking credits include Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice, An Unmarried Woman, Harry & Tonto, Moscow On The Hudson, and many others.

Very good flick! 8/10
Very good movie that addresses the cold war in a science fiction matter

The remake coming out this year is getting a lot of publicity
I didn't know they were doing a remake of this. It's funny that you remembered the "alien" language.. Billy Gray (Father knows best) played the kid. Sam Jaffe played the professor. He's got this Dr. Emmet Brown "wild-eyed" look to him.
I really was liking the movie too until the very end. I found the ending to be unsatisfying. I'm not complaining because it didn't end how I felt it should have I like movies that surprise me. I just didn't like how the movie ended with the mansion on fire and Mrs. Danvers burning up with it.
I also felt that it was pretty obvious early on that Laurence Olivier had something to do with Rebecca's death.
I did like how we found out that Rebecca's cousin was the father of her child; that was totally wicked for 1940. The implied lesbian affair between rebecca and Mrs. danvers was also pretty cool.
If the ending would have been better in my eyes my score would be much higher but in my eyes it was too much of a letdown.
