For our newest episode, we enjoy the glorious duo of William Powell and Myrna Loy in The Thin Man. If you have never watched this booze soaked noir/comedy, you should definitely check it out and then listen to our podcast. It is hard to deny this is one of the great treats of classic cinema. And William Powell is an actor who definitely needs to be enjoyed as often as humanly possible.
And hey – on the podcast, Tim says that we’ll be doing our next recording live at the Parkway theatre on the 7th of October. Then later, he says the 10th! Which is it?????
It’s the 10th. Thursday the 10th. Mark your calendars! We’ll be watching Rear Window!
