    Spot the J&B bottle......

    ...I know this was mentioned on Mobius a while back, but it deserves a thread here, and what the hell, let's turn it into a game: It would seem that J&B Scotch had major product-placement arrangements with many Italian filmmakers. Their product can be seen in PARANOIA, EYEBALL, ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK, FOUR FLIES ON GRAY VELVET, and even in Dagmar Lassandar's dance sequence in THE LAUGHING WOMAN. So, Euro-Cult fans, lets list any film we see with J&B prominently displayed. It'll be fun!

    Thanks, Ian! It's funny that, if you are looking, those pesky bottles appear everywhere, at least in 70's films.

    You're right. I know I've seen them before (you mentioned Four Flies and I remember seeing it there). There have to be a few other Euro cult titles out there to feature them.

    This sounds like a job for Johnny Redman.

    Oh God, what a long list that would be!

    I remember a bottle of J&B figuring into Bava's Rabid Dogs, but basically any Italian 70s flick that involves a bar or some hip party will make use of some J&B... that and Marlboro cigarettes, of course.

    Being a drinker of J&B I always notice. I saw one recently and I'm pretty sure it was in Contraband.

    Just watched Armando Crispino's "The Dead are Alive" (aka. L'etrusco uccide ancora) last week. J&B was present.

    I emailed Justerini and Brooks (J&B) about this subject a few months back; see if I can dig out their reply when I get home.

    Strip Nude for Your Killer is another good one - there are J&B boxes as well as bottles in that one, plus posters for 70s Levis.

    Lots of J&B in "Milano calibro 9", and "La mala ordina" by Fernando di leo.
    Also J&B is to be found in "Milano trema" (aka violent prefessionals) by Sergio Martino
    "Orca-the killer whale" also features a bottle.
    I also believe Umberto Lenzis "Knife of ice" has a J&B in it somewhere.
    "La polizia ringrazia" also features one or two bottles if my mind doesnt deceive me.
    THEY ARE EVERYWHERE

    But there's a classic J&B shot right here, notice how 'Punt Mes' still gets a look in via the ash tray though! (Both are from Milano Calibro 9 BTW)...

    Here's a nice J&B closeup from 'All The Colors of the Dark', not heard of Peer Cigarettes though...

    In the beginning of Mean Frank And Crazy Tony, Lee is on the phone calling the police and the bottle is on prominent display on a table.

    Haha! Never thought about this before. But funnily enough i was watching Squadra Volante last night and lol & behold there's a glass of J&B being poured by Milian in one scene.
    I'd do a screenshot but i'm at work.
    I'm new here as well, so hello everyone.
