    Retired Navy, Submarine Fire Control Chief, & former Res Sgt San Diego Sheriff's Office. Did enough time in both to detect a script where the writer's don't know what they're writing about. I think Ned Beatty's acting skills have saved a few of these scripts. I like realistic movies, believable portrayals, NOT the typical fantasy BS we get today. I just re-watched Deliverance. Law enforcement & the military put me in some pretty bad places, but Mr. Beatty showed more courage in Deliverance than any actor I know today! The way his character handled the situation was exactly how any real man would react given the chance. Believable, realistic, and true to the American Male character. I like Burt but Ned TOTALLY steals the movie from Mr. Reynolds. Nobody ever managed to type cast Mr. Beatty! He always portrays believable characters. I grew up part way in the South & when Direct TV put White Lightning on this morning I was once again reminded of Mr Beatty's ability to transport me to a place and time where his character & the attitudes portrayed, actually existed! Beatty is a VIRTUAL TIME MACHINE! Don't misunderstand. I dislike the Vietnam war protester; I'm a southern, redneck, Babtist, Vietnam era vet; so what do you expect? I'm NOT a fan of the corrupt, racist character portrayed. I'm AM in awe of the accuracy of the character! I KNOW these people. I GREW UP with them. Ned Beatty RE-INTRODUCES me to them! I would have no trouble surviving with them today. The real people Ned's characters draw on; L/E, Deputy's, vets, community leaders, ordinary people, & more, & their still VERY valid views, would have been devoured long ago by political correctness if not for Ned. Albeit modified by Hollywood, Mr. Beatty's characters are accurate, believable, & entertaining. Whether you like them or not, they are true, no shit, Americans! Thank you Ned! Not just for entertaining us all these years, but for doing it without surrendering to the political correctness of the day
