The bottle of "bourbon" is actually Jack Daniels' Tennessee whiskey. Since the Daniels distillery is not in the Bourbon region of Kentucky that whiskey cannot be called "bourbon" according to US law.
Available on video in both R-rated and uncut X-rated versions. One of the main difference between the two cuts involves a scene of anal sex between Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider. In the R-rated version, the scene isn't cut, but rather a lamp is superimposed over the scene, covering most of their bodies. The censored R-rated version is cut by two minutes.
Performed by Marlon Brando
