Home Video Report: ‘The Thin Man’ on DVD
By Bob Nelson
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — If you’re looking for seasonal gifts, here’s one that some may consider a bit of a stretch.
It way sound a little wacky, but you can find holiday cheer from — get this — “The Complete Thin Man Collection,” about the husband and wife super sleuths who spend most of their time solving murders and other heavy business.
William Powell and Myrna Loy star as the couple who, when not swapping banter, are usually tossing back highballs.
There’s seasonal cheer packed into the six videos — a total of 9 hours and 49 minutes which include holiday silliness along with the flinty banter and appropriate small talk.
Incidentally, of all the Thin Man capers in this package you’ll certainly enjoy the first one the most by far, with its shocking yet super surprising Yultide delight.
