After The Thin Man

After The Thin Man
Released Date: December 25, 1936
Director: W.S. Van Dyke
Actors: William Powell, Myrna Loy, James Stewart, Elissa Landi, Joseph Calleia, Jessie Ralph, Alan Marshal, and Teddy Hart

     Here is the second movie to the Thin Man Series. Again we follow the beloved Nick and Nora Charles. While a family member of Nora's goes missing, watch Nick help to find his wifes family member's body. Nick's secret to success is that he waits for someone to slip, and he has enough of the information to catch the killer at hand. And no worries, the movie still has the loved dog from the first Thin Man.

     William Powell and Myrna Loy were great friends during their career. Although they shared a romance/marriage in all of the thin man's and also a few other films, they never were romantically involved outside of work. But during this movie, William Powell was engaged to actress Jean Harlow, but when all three ended up going to the same hotel during filming, all the tabloids made the couple out to be Powell and Loy. To keep that rumor out of the papers and magazines, Jean Harlow decided to share a room with Myrna Loy. And they ended up becoming great friends. After the movie was made, Myrna Loy said that was the best decision made, because they had became great friends, and even acted like girls in a boarding house. Staying up late and talking, joking but also having serious conversations.
