I am so excited about this. I had already heard and was already trying to see who could play the part of Myna Loy, the wife. The Thin Man series was one of the best made detective movies in the old day. They made 6 movies and I have all 6 of them. they still make me laugh.

These days I guess you would consider Willima Powell who played Nick Charles the Private Dectective, an alcoholic. He seemed to always be drinking or drunk. His beautiful wife was rich and he would tell people he married her for her money so he could retire, was always making him take on cases when someone got murdered. Then she got in the way of all his investigations.

They were so much fun to watch. I still watch the movies every now and then. They are in black and white and some of the acting isn't that great but you'd be surprised how entertaining they are.

We'll have to see who they pick to play Nora Charles, his wife. She will have to be petite, dark hair, and very fiesty and doesn't put up with any crap.
