Cause I just never get tired of this movie…
milion dollar movie
the thin man
Probably the first one was the best, but I like all of the Thin Man movies.
Yeah, the first one is so good the rest kind of pale in comparison. But the chemistry between Powell and Loy is great. And she was funny and hot back when they did the first one.
Ever read the book?
 Nope, I haven't. Though apparently in the book the Thin Man doesn't refer to Powell's character, and even doesn't in the movie, but that's what the audience associated the name with the character.
Lake week coming up, I'll scrounge the local used book stores for a copy.
Love your site. From Bernini to Loy with Colin Curtis as a chaser. Promise to follow you every day - even though I grew up loving Duke, Pee Wee, Gil, Carl E & Carl F and of course Sandy!
 Wowzers, Bronx Banter cures blindness! >;) Welcome aboard, friend!
 Dashiell Hammett is an always return to writer for me. The Glass Key, The Dain Curse The Thin Man, The Maltese Falcon, Red Harvest (I have them in one volume) and a nice collection of short stories is well worth the effort. A couple of Sam Spade stories alone can make a day on a lake seem like you're into something special (Cayuga, Seneca, George, Champlain, Erie it doesn't matter) . It's like Guinness with Buschmills or anything with Myrna Loy; just perfect!
BTW if you're into Miller's Crossing check out the Glass Key and then rent the movie with Brian Donlevey, Alan Ladd, Bill Bendix and Ms. Veronica Lake. That's a treat. Of course you'll need the Guinness and Buschmills!
Great pick, Alex! I went as Nora Charles on Halloween last year. The Thin Man is one of my all-time favorite movies, and my second-favorite Christmas movie. I love the banter and the comedic timing between Loy and Powell.
 I found the book a lot darker than the movie was. Not in a bad way, but definitely a shock after watching the frothy confection that the movie is.
Might be the lightest movie about drunks ever.
 uh, have ya seen Strange Brew?
9) See it? My nerdy ass owned the soundtrack and memorized both that and the movie.
 Yeah, in the book, if I recall correctly, the "Thin Man" was the corpse of the murder victim. In any event, it was not a living person.
 Hammett is great. I've only ever read Red Harvest, Maltese Falcon, The Thin Man and some stories. I keep meaning to read the Dain Curse, but...
Powell is great but I think my favorite Powell performance is with his ex-wife Carole Lombard in LaCava's "My Man Godfrey." One of my favorite movies.
