Top Ten Outdoor Movies

Rounding Out the Classics: Deliverance (1972)

Local Hero (1983)

When Mac MacIntyre (Peter Riegert) is sent to Scotland's west coast to swindle the "simple" townsfolk out of their drilling rights, you know the natives are going to somehow turn the tables. Great performances throughout (including Burt Lancaster as a wonderfully crazy Texas oil magnate), a loving portrayal of small town life, and beautiful scenery will surely have you contemplating a trip to Scotland before Mac comes to grips with his direction in life. Funny, charming, and quirky, this movie is a joy ride from beginning to end.
