Anyone remember what movie this was? Maybe it was Crash?
    There was a bottle of Blanton's on Christopher Plummer's bar in "The Inside Man." He was an obscenely rich/powerful bank owner so maybe this is the movie?

    Oh yeah, just saw "The Matador" w/ Brosnan and Kinnear and there was a blatant placement for Maker's in the first few minutes. And like all good movies featuring bourbon it was there to establish the character's excesses

    Two years old and still room for more posts rather than starting a redundant thread may be closer to our kind host's intended message, Lennart. Just another commercial announcement for our sponser, the search function.

    I don't drink to excess. But I'll drink to most anything else.

    Quite correct. Should have done a search, though most times it doesn't get me the info I want in this case it would have turned up not only the same thread name but the same reference to the Hustler - and written much better. Sorry to all for having made the thread.

    How about "The Punisher"? I believe he (the punisher) drinks quite a few bottles of Wild Turkey in that movie.

    Here's a really obscure one. In Under Siege 2, I think Steven Seagal makes an incendiary device out of a bottle of Old Taylor. Barely visible.

    Saw the movie "Payday" a month or so back. 1973 movie starring Rip Torn as a two-timing, hard-drinking, fighting country wester singer. Wild Turkey (usually straight out of the bottle) was his drink of choice in the car, in the studio, while fighting, in bed...

    As I recollect on how the bourbons/whiskeys have been portrayed in the movies, I can't help but think that Cinema has probably done as much as anything to cause a great deal of the general publics negative opinions of our favorite drink over the years.

    Mystic River: just before Sean Penn's character kills another character, Kevin Bacon I believe it is, he and a couple other guys get him trashed on Wild Turkey.

    Gotta love that Turkey!

    I was watching "First Blood" (Stallone's 1st Rambo movie), again last night on TV. When the sheriff comes into the bar to apologize to Rambo's "mentor" he orders a shot of Wild Turkey.
