Quotes

Narrator: "The Thin Man" brought together Myrna Loy and William Powell - as Nora and Nick Charles - in a film so good it sired a series and so sophisticated it seems modern, in all but costumes, 30 years later.

Crazy Credits

The opening Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer logo has an "OUT TO LUNCH" sign in front of the circle hiding the lion's head as he roars. The sign then flips up to reveal an animated man trapped inside the lion. The man's hands and feet beat and kick the lion as the man yells "Ow! Ow! Get me outta here!" See more »

A funny stroll down memory lane
30 June 1999 | by Scrooge-3See all my reviews

Many clips from the silent era through MGM's heyday. The editing could have been tighter--some sequences went on too long and others way too short--but I suspect the filmmakers wanted to make sure they didn't leave out any of the stars. Nevertheless, this is overall a funny stroll down memory lane.
