  1. I like the novel but despite the changes – or because of them – I *love* the movie. William Powell and Myrna Loy are perfect! What a great screen relationship Nick and Nora have even if in “real life” the amount of booze they consume’d probably be lethal 😉 Hey, can’t forget Asta (or the sequels in which, After The… apart, the titles suggest *Nick* is the Thin Man!) either. 🙂

  2. we ADORE Nick and Nora.

    we once found dog tags (from actual dogs, not military personnel or dodgy chelsea-club-dwellers) that said Nick and Nora on the upper west side.

    you could tell so much about the owners from such nomenclature choices.
