It is said that a bottle of J&B is opened every half second. Walk into just about any watering hole in the world and there will likely be a bottle of good old Justerini & Brooks behind the bar. Needless to say this classic blend has popped up in countless films. In fact, I could probably crank out an entire website dedicated to J&B appearances alone, but until my girlfriend starts petitioning for a "Breakfast At Tifffany's" nod, I'll stick with the gangster movies. This one in particular.
"Once Upon a Time in America" is a 3.5 hour long epic and is absolutely packed with action and drama. At the 28:00 mark Robert Deniro's character "Noodles" returns to New York after hiding out in Buffalo for decades. He walks into his old friend's bar and they sit down over a bottle of J&B to catch up.
