I was watching the excellent Hitchcock movie "North By Northwest" last night (hadn't seen it in ages) and must point out perhaps the best attempted murder in cinema history (since it didn't work)-- bad guy James Mason and Martin Landau force good Cary Grant into drinking and entire bottle of Bourbon (after sifting through the possibilites of Vodka, Rum, Scotch, etc.-- excellent choice by jove!), and then attempt to get him (Cary) to drive off a cliff. Except for the cliff part-- not a bad way to go I thought. I couldn't make out the brand in the film, but I hope it was Stagg or Van Winkle.
One excellent example of Bourbon in the Movies, I thought. Anyone have other examples?
