I posted a video from the movie but discovered, like many things, the scene from the movies was constructed and a fraud.

I knew Dueling Banjos was a cover on the movie, if that's the reference you're making:

No, the thing I learned was that the boy depicted in the movie can't play the banjo.  The left hand on the banjo neck belonged to a man who could play who had his left hand and are through the boy's shirt, but the actual music was recorded in a studio by two others and was dubbed into the movie.

Ah, I missed that. Genius, if you ask me.

Scuzzy; not so bright.
