On Blu-ray: William Powell and Myrna Loy Bring Thrills to Marriage in The Thin Man (1934)

Classic Movies Posted by KC on Oct 10, 2019

The first film in the Thin Man series has long been my cinematic comfort food. William Powell and Myrna Loy are the kind of stars that feel like home, because their wit and high spirits lift you, despite or maybe because of the sour past you can see behind the characters they play. Life has imbued t read more

The Song of The Thin Man (1947)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 3, 2019

The Song of The Thin Man is really and truly the swan song of the series and while I did enjoy most of the additions, there is a sense that it was time to end the franchise. The year is 1947. The war is over. Things have changed. It really has little to do with William Powell and Myrna Loy being ol read more

The Thin Man Goes Home (1945)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 2, 2019

Sometimes it’s necessary to go back to the basics. We’ve been introduced to the social elite of New York and San Francisco, invited along to giant family estates, and frequented the race track and wrestling rings. It only makes sense that at some point we would finally be introduced to read more

Shadow of The Thin Man (1941)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Jan 1, 2019

Little Nick Charles Jr. is growing up and his loving daddy, in lieu of fairy tales, reads to his son about the horse races. Some things never change. Despite an unfortunate stereotyped-laden portrayal provided by Louise Beavers, the picture quickly settles into another enjoyable jaunt. In fact, it& read more

After The Thin Man (1936)

4 Star Films Posted by 4 Star Film Fan on Dec 30, 2018

The reason to watch The Thin Man series was never murder. Sure, like its predecessor, this follow-up has the pretense of a mystery plot but that’s merely a trifle in comparison to the return of Nick and Nora Charles. The novelty of this picture is no longer that it once more brings crime and read more

Virtual Virago Posted by Jennifer Garlen on May 4, 2018

After the Thin Man (1936) reunites director W.S. Van Dyke and stars William Powell and Myrna Loy for a sequel to the 1934 hit, The Thin Man, in which Nick and Nora Charles first cracked wise and drank heavily through a crime-solving adventure.

Series | The Thin Man

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jun 22, 2017

Since its first installment in 1934 and in the eighty years since, The Thin Man series has stood apart from other film series and franchises. Its six films always delivered a “twist” mystery and the wonderful chemistry between stars William Powell and Myrna Loy. Much of the series’s most memorable read more

Backlots at Noir City: THE THIN MAN (1934) and CLASH BY NIGHT (1950)

Backlots Posted by Lara on Jan 23, 2015

As a proud Barbara Stanwyck aficionado, I was thrilled when Noir City 13 reached its halfway point on Wednesday night with a screening of two Barbara Stanwyck dramas from the 1950s–Clash By Night (1950) and Crime of Passion (1957). As both are films that I have seen before (I’ve seen 6 read more
