ABOUT US


STARRING ROLES

 

Zippo lighters have an entertainment resume and career longevity that a superstar would envy. They were a required accessory for film heroes of the 30s and 40s - as much a part of the costume as the trench coat and fedora. American GIs have been equipped with Zippo lighters both on and off screen since the early days of World War II. The familiar shape and distinctive click sound are as instantly recognizable as Grouchos moustache, the Dukes drawl, or Julia Roberts smile.

 

 

Movie Star

 

Zippo's rise to prominence during World War II is reflected by the large number of films that feature Zippo lighters, both those made during that period and afterward. Whether it's Donna Reed lighting Montgomery Clift's cigarette in From Here to Eternity or Errol Flynn wielding his Zippo with characteristically suave leading-man style in Objective Burma, a Zippo lighter provides an instant air of authenticity. Director George Stevens was captured using his Zippo during the making of his documentary D-Day to Berlin. In 1945, Vincent Minelli's The Clock used a lighter to bring Judy Garland and Robert Walker together for a whirlwind courtship. The dialogue indicates that it is a Zippo lighter, but the shortage of civilian Zippo lighters forced the use of a stand-in. (See Zippo history for more information about the shortage of Zippo lighters during World War II.)

The military connection extends through films about the Korean War and Vietnam. A Zippo linked Karl Malden and Richard Widmark in Sergeant Terror, while Gregory Peck counted on his Zippo for moral support in Pork Chop Hill. The Green Berets, starring John Wayne, was extremely popular. So is the camouflage model the Duke used is one of Zippo's most sought-after collectibles. Apocalypse Now director Francis Ford Coppola set the haunting tone of his film in the opening scenes with Martin Sheen's Colt revolver and a Zippo lighter.

 

Featured Movie Role

 

the air i breathe

 

Four stories, representing the emotional principles of love, pleasure, sorrow, and happiness, come together in this episodic drama. A powerful crime boss, Fingers, subtly controls the destinies of four people whose circumstances have brought them to a crossroads in their lives. A quiet business executive is told that an upcoming horse race has been rigged and bets everything he has on his belief that the story is true. A noted pop singer discovers her career is hanging in the balance when she's forced to sever ties with her manager. A doctor must set aside a physician's traditional guidelines when circumstances demand he treat the woman he loves after a serious accident. And a criminal has a powerful vision of the future, but can't decide if his premonitions are to be trusted.

Broadway Star

From hits like Ain’t Misbehavin’, Hairspray, Jersey Boys to STOMP the Zippo lighter has graced the stage in numerous theatrical presentations.

 

Featured Stage Role

 

STOMP

 

An innovative group of British performers has completed the Zippo lighter’s transformation to a musical instrument. In STOMP, the eight-person troupe combines percussion, dance, and unlikely objects to produce amusing and infectious musical numbers, one of which is performed entirely with Zippo lighters. Co-founder Luke Creswell explains the genesis of the Zippo number:
"I was in Glasgow for a big outdoor extravaganza. Everyone in the bars I went to did tricks with their Zippos... Fans of Zippos know they have a distinctive ping when they're opened - and I started thinking of that."
STOMP has been an enormous success in the United Kingdom, United States, Canada and Australia.

Music Star

 

The music world’s definition of cool… the Zippo lighter. Whether it is held high in hand at a concert or used as a musical prop in videos, on stage, or in the studio, the Zippo lighter is sure to make an appearance. Eric Clapton even used the click sound from a Zippo lighter lid opening and closing as a backing rhythm track to his hit single “It’s Probably Me.”

 

Featured Music Role

 

It's Probably Me

 

Sometimes a theme song sets the tone for a film. A Zippo lighter was literally instrumental in creating the mood for Lethal Weapon III, starring Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. Working on the song that eventually became "It's Probably Me", singer/songwriter Eric Clapton absentmindedly clicked his Zippo lighter in creative cogitation. The rhythmic sound finally captured his attention and provided the inspiration for the staccato melody. The Zippo lighter also plays a part in the music video as it clicks in time with, and becomes part of, the musical background.
