I got The Thin Man DVD set last Christmas, and I've just taken them out and started watching them again. What an enjoyable series!

one of cinema's greatest screen pairs, along with Errol/Olivia as well as Kate/Tracy!

vp81955 i agree with you about the the remake hopefully following the book more than the film. the book version of The Thin Man is a little darker and of course there is a little Nick and Nora bantering but not as much or as good as the movie. if they were to remake the movie they'd be really stupid to do so. book Nick to me was a bit more mysterious and a bit darker but still had a biting wit. book Nora was not as sarcastic but also had a good wit. the book and original movie are very different so i am hoping the remake will be closer to the book.

i cannot even imagine Johnny Depp as either movie or book Nick. i'm am more terrified and worried about who will be cast to play Nora. Myrna Loy and William Powell are incredible as the detective couple this is one case where the movie and the legacy of the actors should be left alone.

i heard a rumor that some people in the industry wanted to remake Sunset Boulevard and To Catch a Thief.... these movies along with The Thin Man just show the lack of originality hollywood has left.

i watched Evelyn Prentice today. Myrna Loy was amazing like when the movie ended i was just floored. you can just see Evelyn's torment, and guilt and sadness and nervousness. She did some of the best acting i have ever seen in a movie. the movie itself was good i didn't want it to end and if it hadn't ended by the time i had to go to class i would have made my self late i liked watching it a lot haha.

just watched Thirteen Women. not one of the greatest movies ever made but Myrna Loy was really good, she played a very good evil woman. she looked gorgeous too.
