The Rum Diary (2011)


pinaudclubmantalc_bornunicornPinaud Clubman talc (in a vintage tin bottle) is featured in the opening scene and in the film poster.

Director Bruce Robinson demanded the inclusion of the Pinaud talc in the shot as he felt it “essential” to convey the sense that Depp’s character, Paul Kemp, was highly refined and sophisticated despite his penchant for heavy drinking. Once the scene was shot in its entirety, Johnny Depp took the talc home.
