    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    The movie, "In the Heat of the Night," the sheriff is drinking some bourbon. Couldn't make out the bottle but it was corked.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    I just saw "Death Proof". Quentin Tarrintino's flick of the "Grindhouse" double feature.
    One scene had a group of people in a bar and they called for six shots of Wild Turkey. The bartender poured the shots and slammed the bottle on the bar and they got a full close up of the label.
    Product placement?
    Then later, after Stuntman Mike gets shot he pulls a bottle of Four Roses out of the glove box of his car and swings some down and pours some on his gun shot wound.

    Not bourbon, but there was a funny scene where the bartender gives the girls a free shot, the color is green and they have trouble gulping it down.
    One of the girls asks what was that?
    The bartender hold up a bottle containing the green spirit and says, "Chartreuse! The liquor so good they named a color after it!"

    Chinatown hasn't been mentioned, but in the very beginning of the movie Jack Nicohlson pulls out a bottle of (Old Crow) bourbon and gives a few snorts to the guy who's wife is cheating on him.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Here's an obscure one; in the movie This Stuff'll Kill Ya (anyone seen it?) Preacher Roscoe Boone flies into a rage while in a local liquor store when he finds that they are stocking legal whiskey (which is cutting into this moonshine business) and flies into a rage smashing a tax stripped 1.75 litre bottle of Old Charter!

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    I am not 100% but in the beginning of the movie Shawshank Redemption when Andy is waiting outside of the place where his wife is cheating on him he takes a swig of a pint of Old Fitzgerald. Can anyone confirm this?

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    In the movie "Out of Sight" G. Clooney and J Lo meet up in a bar and she orders a bourbon with a water back. I knew there was a reason I liked her.

    The house they break into is in Oakland County, here in Michigan and also a good friend of mines "Step Dad's House". I've never been there but he's a straight laced CPA and not a very goog liar.

    Of all the Elmore Leonard books that have been made into movies, "Out Of Sight" is the best adaptation.
    In all his books the cool people drink bourbon or pack a Sig Sauer, in "Out Of Sight" Karen Sisco(J-Lo) does both.
