Welcome ya'll,

Thanks for checking out my blog. This is mostly my own crazy thoughts on a variety of subjects, but primarily they will be about movies, tv, and books. Being a movie junkie, rabid reader, and TV show-aholic, this blog is just another excuse to feed my addictions. [a quiet 'yay me']. Hope you enjoy, Clancy Metzger

Can we talk "The Thin Man"...

Who hasn't see a "Thin Man" movie? All who said raised their hands - gold stars for you! The rest of you - shame, shame, shame....rush right out and rent one now. Hurry - it's never too late meet Nick and Nora Charles!!!

There are six of the 1930-40's films to choose from - in order, they are: The Thin Man, After the Thin Man, Another Thin Man, Shadow of the Thin Man, The Thin Man Goes Home, and Song of the Thin Man. And the best part - wait for it - they all star Myrna Loy and William Powell - if you just said 'Who?' - look them up on IMDB and never admit that out loud : (

Nick used to be a private detective before he married wealthy Nora. But when they return to Nick's old stomping grounds, they are constantly running into the colorful characters that used to populate his world and getting sucked into investigating criminal activities. Nick is always reticent to help solve the crime but Nora always wants to be involved because she finds the seedy underworld fascinating and exciting.

Every 'Thin Man" film contains loving witty banter between Nick and Nora, lots of cocktails, physical comedy, and classic get-togethers of the sort that reveal our criminal-du jour. Trust me on this one - watch them, watch them all!
