Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
It wasn’t long ago that I plowed through my box set of The Thin Man movies and fell in love. Multiple times, actually. I fell in love with the fantastic dialogue, the rapid-fire comedy and, most importantly, with the ravishingly gorgeous Myrna Loy as Mrs. Nora Charles.
In fact, William Powell and Myrna Loy together are magic, the perfect mixture of playful mocking and genuine caring. Some of the Thin Man flicks are better than others, but those two were always consistent.
With the talk of Johnny Depp wanting to resurrect the series and play Nick Charles, you owe it to yourself to dig up the box set and give these old Hollywood films a view because even if Depp knocks it out of the park and finds the one in a million girl for Nora there’s still something about the dialogue and filmmaking of the ‘30s that fits this story to a T. And I love Depp, but I kinda see Robert Downey Jr. more as a modern day Nick Charles.
Anyhoo, this photo of the cast and crew (drinks in hand, of course) was submitted by reader Dave Lescalleet and he was kind enough to send along a higher res image, so click for the bigger shot. Myrna Loy… le sigh…
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s pic made a deal with the devil.
