I am trying to determine the rye bottle brand I saw in "The Bank Dick" W.C. Fields movie last night....it may
have been a decanter but the bottle had writing on it.....square...with a golf ball shaped type stopper.
Will freeze the frame later for another look.

Here is a photo:


There may be another bottle I am thinking of in the movie as well.

"You can pull anything you want. It's a regular joint. I know Joe very well.
- What's your pleasure? - Rye highball.
Rye highball.
- Make it light. - Light rye.
Mr. Sousè, what'll it be?
I want two highballs.
One very light. You can double up on mine.
Has Michael Finn been in here today?
No, but he will be.
That's good."

Holy crap, the link is to Modern Drunkard Magazine! That's funny. I love the slogan: "Say it Loud, Say It Plowed!"

Good stuff!

I saw a great photo from Disfarmer that has a bottle with a logo I can't identify; I'll try to post a link to it. Disfarmer's photos are classic American portraiture, just wonderful stuff. I downloaded the photo but won't post it out of respect to copyrights, etc. Let me find a link.

Cheers, Jono, that cracked me up!

PS- Sorry, I have no idea what the bottle might be.

PPS- OK, here's a link, hope it works. If the link doesn't take you to the photo, go to the "Gallery" area and click on "Men." The photo in question is on page 2. Two guys with a bottle of something-or-other at their feet. I suspect it's not Drambuie!

Not sure about the bottle either but I get a very "Broke Back Farm" feel out of those photos...or welcome to Deliverance extras...."Say soooouuuuueeeeee boy, come on! Especially men014...hmm....very good friends I daresay!

Women001 look like female twins of men014...wierd stuff. I have never heard of Disfarmer before....."interesting" period photos.
