Cocktails and crime: The Thin Man

I'm still waiting on my shipment (must be sending it from the heart of China by burro). In the meantime, I've been watching a few things in my collection.

For example, last night I watched The Thin Man again - the first, the original. It stars William Powell and Myrna Loy. I've always liked Powell (hence my fondness for My Man Godfrey) and he's in top form with Loy in this one.

By the way, the movie comes from the Dashiell Hammett novel of the same name. And it was directed by W.S. Van Dyke, the man who gave us Tarzan the Ape Man.
