Classic Movie Pick ~ "The Thin Man"

The movie I have chosen to be this week's pick is "The Thin Man". It is one of my top five all-time favorite movies. If you haven't seen this marvelous flick, please do take the time to watch it. The humor, the story, the fashion...all timeless and utterly delightful.

This film was made in 1934 and is directed by the marvelous and extremely talented W.S. Van Dyke, before the ratings committee took over movies. Starring two of my favorite actors, the debonair William Powell and spunky, lovely Myrna Loy. The chemistry between them explains why they made many, many films together. This film is a murder mystery and it's in beautiful black and white. I have included this movie clip from Turner Classic Movies for your viewing pleasure.

You can also find when it will be playing next on TCM, if you wish to see it.



I hope you will let me know if you see this perfect movie. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it.
