I remember reading once that Tina Turner was the woman God made to teach all other women how to dance in high heels!

I also remember a Paul Simon interview where he talked about his and Garfunkel's breakup. It happened about the time Art started landing a lot of movie roles. When Paul asked Art how they were going to accomodate his movie schedule Art said, "Well, you write and arrange all the songs, book the studio time, and get all the tracks laid down. Then, when I have some free time in my schedule, I'll come in and sing my parts, then you do the mix." To which Paul Simon replied, "How about you go f**k yourself, Art! I'm going solo!"

Originally titled "Feudin' Banjos" from 1954's Art "Guitar Boogie" Smith, name was changed to "Dueling Banjos" in an attempt to avoid royalties. Filmmakers were later sued and made to pay up. Mr. Redden still living in the same area, appeared in a couple other movies. Says he never saw much money from his acting role in "Deliverance". His appearance is highlighted with makeup in the film also.
