Ah, the Thin Man movies. . . The first one came out in May of 1934. Yes, some more of those before-my-time movies (they were actually from my grandparents’ time), but I do so love them! William Powell & Myrna Loy as Nick & Nora Charles are the best cinematic couple ever! In fact, I’ve also seen them together in a few other movies and they were great together in those too (you’ll see at least some of those movies on here in the future).
But back to The Thin Man. . . This is one of my favorite parts. Nora opens the door to see her husband with another woman in his arms. Does she fly off the handle? Burst into tears? Assume the worst? No! She knows he’s not messing around on her! So what happens? Allow me show you.
I know, it’s great, right? 😉
And, of course, everything ends well. . .

Have you seen any of the other movies they did together?
That is one of my favourite scenes; it’s so refreshing to see. Have you watched ‘I Love You Again’? That one is absolutely brilliant. And funny. Brilliantly funny. Lovely to find other Nick and Nora Appreciators : )

I have seen that one & loved it! 🙂 As well as Manhattan Melodrama. Evelyn Prentice, Double Wedding, & Love Crazy. If you haven’t seen those, you should because they’re all great! (We got the 5-disc set recently on Amazon.)
Same here! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
