    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    In the latest episode of Smallville, Lois goes to see a General and gifts him a bottle of bourbon and Cuban cigars, couldn't read the label on the bottle.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    I don't think it was necessarily a recent episode, but Food Network showed the Iron Chef America Corn Challenge episode the other night, and one of the dishes included a bourbon caramel sauce because, as they reminded the judges, "bourbon is made from corn." In one quick shot to show the bourbon being added to the sauce I think they were using Maker's Mark.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    In the movie Second Name there is a scene in a bar and we can see a bottle of Jim Beam White in the background next to what looks like a bottle of Four Roses Blended. It's hard to make out the second bottle so it could probably be some other export FR bottle...

    Was it Cat Cora? She uses bourbon A LOT. It always seems to be Maker's Mark.

    No, it was Bobby Flay.

    Of course I was wrong.

    Here's an obscure one in more ways than one. In the B-Movie The Candy Snatchers (1973) at about the 18 minute mark the kidnappers are sharing a pint of Old Quaker.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Watching The Blue Dahlia (1946) this afternoon in between diaper changes. When the movie opens Johnny Morrison (Alan Ladd) and his two GI buddies, Buzz (Wm. Bendix) and George (Hugh Beaumont of Leave it to Beaver fame) get of the bus in Hollywood and immediately seek out a bar.

    Buzz: Hey Fellas, give a look. How 'bout that goodbye drink, Johnny?
    Morrison: Why not? One bar's just like another.
    Buzz: As long as they got bourbon
    George: ...or a reasonable facsimile.

    In the bar:
    Buzz: Bourbon straight with a bourbon chaser.
    Johnny: Same.
    George: Two seperate glasses, get it?
    Bartender: Why wouldn't I get it?

    The bartender pours their drinks out of what looks like a bottle of I.W. Harper, while Buzz picks a fight with a G.I. playing swing on the jukebox.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    In the Charlton Heston movie The Omega Man, about 58 minutes in, you can see an Old Charter box along the wall as they carry Richie into the guest bedroom. Though Heston himself imbibes frequently throughout the movie, it mostly seems to be J&B scotch.
