    I think it's Ezra Brooks or Old Ezra. I remember noticing it shows up in the bottle, too. There is more whiskey in that film, too... I.W. Harper?

    Charles Brooks, father of Andy Brooks, is seen drinking Henry McKenna straight from the bottle while looking over some photos from the good old days, the days before his son went off to Vietnam, got killed, and came back as a bloodthirsty zombie, in Dead of Night (1974, aka Deathdream).

    Not in a movie, but the television show Two And A Half Men. Charlie Sheen was giving his brother a slightly hard time for drinking his "good stuff". His good stuff was a bottle of Woodford Reserve. Joe

    I have seen WildTurkey, Knob creek, as well as many scotches on this show. His bar is located to the right of the kitchen and is in the back ground behind the couch that he watches TV. Good show by the way.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Multiple tax stripped bottles of Black Crow Bourbon are seen being poured from by Dussander throughout the movie Apt Pupil. There’s even a scene where we see him coming out of a liquor store with, presumably, several bottles in his cart to add to his stash by the cellar stairs. Whether sitting back telling Todd his stories about his time in the German army during WWII or murdering a homeless man whom he thought was on to him, Dussander keeps his Black Crow at close hand and in good supply!
    There is a brand called Black Crow but I could find very little info on it, the partial picture (all I could find) I saw of the label on one for sale didn't look the same as the one in the movie at all though. I wonder if this is a real label or a fake label with a coincidental name... (the first one is from the movie, the second is the real one)

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    The label is so similar to at least one iteration of the Old Crow label that I suspect it is a fake, made for the movie, by modifying an Old Crow label. It could be an actual knock-off brand, but it's so close that I think Beam would have sued, ala Brown-Forman's suit against Barton for Ridgewood Reserve.

    Kind of figured that was the case. I could swear I've seen older Old Crow in the same or similar bottles and that label is very similar to the current label. Odd how it's got a tax strip, the movie is from the late 90's and I think it takes place present day. Oh well, maybe he's hoarding dusties, he does have that stash by the cellar steps. :]
