Nick And Nora Alert!

As some, who are unfortunately subjected to my ramblings in class about old movies, may recall, I'm a huuuuuge fan of the Thin Man movies.
There's the witty dialogue, especially that of Nick and Nora Charles.

Nora Charles: Pretty girl.
Nick Charles: Yes. She's a very nice type.
Nora Charles: You got types?
Nick Charles: Only you, darling. Lanky brunettes with wicked jaws

You might even get me to admit that they are my model of what a marriage should be (with or with out the liberal doses of alcohol). The chemistry between William Powell and Myrna Loy has no equal.
I could go on about it but I'm hoping some of you who have not already had the experience will take the time to see for yourself. The Thin Man is on TCM this Sunday.
Check your local listings.
As for my students - No, it's not required viewing but if you can spare the time away from your assignments, I will speak kindly of you for ever after. And that's gotta be worth at least two hours of your time
