Good morning it's Wednesday and we all know what that means, time to dig into our collective psyches and post a clip to amuse and entertain. It's the first anniversary of Movie Clip Wednesday, hosted by Anonymous Boxer with her faithful sidekick and all around good guy Milk River Madman, who has been running the show since last summer and doing a mighty fine job at it. If you wish to play. Post a clip on your site. Try to make it 3 minutes or less, then stop by MRM's site say I'm up, with the title of your movie. You can also see who else is playing. And find some very interesting and differing perspectives on a single topic. The topic for this week: Best 1930s Film. I don't know if this breaks the official rules. But I'm going to reuse a clip. To me the best films of the 1930s are The Thin Man series. Many of my favorite films are from the thirties the Marx Brothers movies, movies like Captain Blood with Errol Flynn and Mutiny on the Bounty. All great movies and in black and white. But the Thin Man and its sequels have always been my favorites and of the few movies I own, I have all six.
The Thin Man is a 1934 American comic detective film starring William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles, a flirtatious married couple who banter wittily as they solve crimes with ease. Nick is a hard drinking retired detective and Nora a wealthy heiress. Their dog, the Wire-Haired Fox Terrier Asta, played by Skippy, was also a popular character. I hope you enjoy.
