More Movies

Another Thin Man

I don't want to give anything away, but there's a baby! The baby's role is much like that of the dog. Also, the baby's age is not correct. He looks about 6 or 7 months and they say he's a year.

Shadow of the Thin Man

Can you tell that Francisco's on a deadline so I get to watch whatever I want? Nicky, Jr. features in this one--he's adorable. He plays a part quite similar to that of the dog--a little comic relief.

The Thin Man Goes Home

It's funny that they call these movies Thin Man movies, even though Nick isn't the thin man (at least originally)--the man he was trying to find was the thin man. Sadly, they left the kid at home for this one.

Song of the Thin Man

This is the last one--the Thin Man meets jazz and film noir. (Although, at least in the DVD that I rented, there's also one episode made for tv based on the thin man, but set in the 60s, with different actors. So there are apparently 72 episodes of that--I've still got a long way to go with the thin man.)

The Searchers

Complicated and fascinating. I don't have much to say about it; I need to watch it again. For the fact that it's a Western, and the Indians are wearing war paint and headdresses, I thought it was subtle. (Although I don't think that's the going take on the movie.)
