It appears a real bottle of Old Grand Dad bourbon whiskey - 100 proof "Bottled in Bond" - is found in the back seat of Johnson's ca when he's out "parking" with Anne. Unusual product placement during Prohibition. Other such bottles can be seen throughout the film. It was allowed to be distilled under strict government control during Prohibition for "medicinal purposes". See more
