how it's done

The Thin Man is one of my favorite movies, naturally. (satin! guns! gin! Myrna Loy! banter!)
And the opening clip here is perhaps my favorite 40 second-scene ever put to film.




I think it's time for a pre-dinner cocktail, don't you?

Mm, booze. Why can't we still be as fancy as all that? I miss it.

i wish people in movies still sounded like that (voices). they sound so glamorous. it's almost like accents, but it's not. i like.

Myrna Loy is THE BEST. She is flawless in every film she ever made. I adore her, and you for posting this!

"satin! guns! gin! Myrna Loy! banter!" better be the title of your first book because if not I'm stealing it.
