What is The Thin Man?
No, it is not a Girls' Scout Cookie flavor. That is "thin mints."
First it is two characters developed by the mystery novelist Dashiell Hammett. Many think he and Lillian Hellman were the prototypes for the characters of Nick and Nora Charles.
Nick and Nora solve mysteries.
They were popular in book form and they became a movie starring William Powell and Myrna Loy. The movie was such a hit that others quickly followed. So I received the six DVDs (plus a bonus disc) from Treva as a gift. And Rebecca asked, "What are you doing?" She called me this morning. I told her I was probably going to just hang around the house with my grandson and later on watch the movies.
She loves the movies as well and was also thirty minutes away and wondering if I wanted to stay over and have a movie marathon with the kids?
So I made sure that was fine with my grandson's mother (it was) and we hopped in the car with Rebecca. I love the Thin Man movies but I love even more being able to watch them with someone who really enjoys them.
