Sure was...was not a WNC film...it was filmed on the Chattooga River, even though it begins in Jackson Co. and flows into GA. If I am not mistaken, it was the venue for several events in the 1996 Summer Olympics.
Actually, the Ocoee River in southeastern Tennessee was where whitewater events took place in the Olympics.

It still portrays WNC very well, regardless of where it was filmed.

It is very sad how Hollywood stereotpyes Southerners and the South then and now. The fake Southern accents are always funny. I was born and raised in the South and have never heard anyone talk with a fake accent like in the movies and TV.

They have to be understandable in the movies, that is the difference.

Obviously you have no problem understanding me and you wouldn't if you spoke to me in person. I am a proud native of WNC, and I have travelled across the country and to many other English and non-English speaking nations and have had no problem communicating with others. Hollywood DOES stereotype Southerners.

The last shot in Deliverence is in Sylva NC ( on Back Street, get the joke?), but yeah, the movie takes place in GA. Burt Reynolds actually pissed off one of the local greasy spoons in Sylva because he said ( On the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson ) it was the worst place he'd ever eaten.

Being There was filmed here too. Mostly at the Biltmore house. Also, the Clearing with Robert Redford was filmed on Blackberry Inn Road. Same as Songcatcher and Journey of August King, and Last of the Mohicans.

Remember back in the early 1990's when Last of the Mohicans was filmed here and a lot of gals in Cherokee and Candler turned up pregnant with them indians babies who were working on the film.
