Dept. of The Silver Screen

"The Thin Man"
... is just a wonderful movie. With lots and lots and lots and lots of alcohol. William Powell and Myrna Loy are incredible together - natural and witty and sophisticated and ingenious and heavy drinking. Very heavy. Yup. Lots of alcohol. Lots and lots and lots of alcohol. And the script is dynamite (Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich, working with the Dashiell Hammett novel.)

And lots of drinks.

And a murder. And a dog.

And lots more drinks.

I believe I'd like one now.
