The guards are mixing a cup of RC Cola with some drug to knock Wild Bill out so they can take Coffey to the Warden's wife. Those bottles of Royal Crown Cola were not used in 1934 or 5, the time the movie takes place in, but were 1950s bottles. The earliest painted RC pop bottles has pyramids and a copyright date of 1936 on the label, and prior to that were likely plain, embossed glass bottles. See more »

Without using all the old cliches, I would recommend this movie to anyone interested in a creative, intriguing, and life enhancing experience. Everything about this movie was delightful. I recommend seeing this movie with someone especially close to you. After the movie my Fiancée and I spent two hours talking and expanding on the films ideas and concepts. This was truly a electrifying experience. I would venture to call this movie one of the best movies of all time. Sure, there are things that I would have liked to see done differently, but that is what makes a movie more enjoyable. The discussions following this film were wonderful.
