Extreme U-S adventure recounts Deliverance
The Englishman known for alligator wrestling and cliffside climbing has sent word from across the Atlantic of the indelible part that his return played last summer to Oconee County, as part of his latest U-S adventure. The video product for another in a series of Charley Boorman’s USA Adventure touches on Boorman’s return to Oconee County and the Chattooga River where his father, John Boorman, directed the movie Deliverance 40 years earlier. Charley Boorman was a child on the set of the hit movie and appeared in one scene. One of the movie’s legacies is an explosion in the popularity of what is now is the federally designated and protected Chattooga, according to Ken Sloan, director of the Mountain Lakes CVB.
