Courtesy of the most excellent folks over at Grantland.com, an outstanding (and classy) look back at the greatest episodes of intoxication ever captured on the silver screen. In particular, I really respect the diversity here – and the pure good taste by starting it off with what really is the genre’s ultimate archetype: Humphrey Bogart’s unforgettable booze-fueled confrontation with rejection, self-loathing and the painful memory of brighter days from “Casablanca.”
Just a few of the clips here . . . For the rest (all well worth watching), click on this link to head over to the Grantland site which does a splendid job at presentation.
