Topic: Coffee-Movie Geekdom (10 msgs / 146 lines)
1) From: Paul Jolly
Okay, the one I remember is in "Sunset
Boulevard".  William Holden is working on a
script with Nancy Olson and tells her to "make
some more coffee."  Out comes the Cona (heck, it
could be a Sunbeam for all I know) and she scoops
the grounds in.  Of course, this is nothing
compared to the other oldie where the newlywed
wife tries to make coffee in a vac pot and puts
the grounds in the bottom, water in the top, etc.
 But using a vac pot surely counts for
something???????

Oh, I forgot my favorite movie coffee scene:
Steve Martin making coffee in "Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid."
He's making old-fashioned deadly boiled coffee and begins pouring ground
coffee into the boiler and pours ... and pours ... and ... well, you get the
idea.

Gabby Hays was in a movie about a wagon train moving west.  When he 
wanted some coffee, a woman offered to boil some grounds again and he 
said they had already been boiled so many times that they were whiter 
than a new born's behind.  Not  really a favorite but for some reason I 
remember it.  Must have been four or five years old and in the butt 
joke phase.

In my book, you win the prize for most unique "entry", as it were.  Everyone
knows about espresso; how many know/remember vac pots?  Thanks for the info!

Man, that was a funny scene (at least I thought so).  Definitely goes on the
list!

Back then, vac pots were very common. Witness how many are still available 
on ebay, 40 yrs later.....

10) From: Dan Bollinger
Russell Crowe and Salma Hayek in "Breaking Up", 1997.
Early in the film, Russell's character puts a teapot on to boil and begins
preparing coffee with a Moka Pot. The next scene has the two drinking coffee
from two, large coffee cups.  The setting is modern day NYC. Makes me think
he made Cafe Americanos.
Oh, not a great film, about a 6 out of 10, to me.  Dan
