Thunderbird Reconsidered

Apparently, Thunderbird, nobody’s favorite gutter jug wine, was originally marketed as a high class aperitif.  And who should sell this to me?  None other than James Mason.  It’s not as effective as say, Billy Dee Williams pimping Colt ’45, but this still makes me want to curl up with a bottle for a Lolita, North By Northwest twofer.  [via Americandrink]
