William Powell and Myrna Loy are my favourite non-musical screen team. They worked so well together as husband and wife that people thought they were a real-life couple and put them in adjoining rooms in hotels even though he was actually dating Jean Harlow. People always think of The Thin Man films when they think of the two of them and the first four are fantastic. But they made 16 movies together and only 6 of them were as Nick and Nora. My favourites, I think, of their non-Charles movies are Love Crazy and Evelyn Prentice. But this changes over time and I still have not seen all of their 16 films. I've seen almost all of them, but not all of them. I'VE BEEN REMINDED BY SPEEDRACER THAT I HAVE THE WRONG NUMBER OF MOVIES LISTED; THEY MADE 14 MOVIES, NOT 16 TOGETHER. OOPS! Edited for incorrect number of films.
So excited about TCM's New Year's Eve marathon of The Thin Man. Who is as happy about this as I am? No better way to ring in 2016. Please check out my new page on Bill and Myrna. Lots of behind the aces stories and anecdotes. http://www.classichollywoodbios.com/powellloy.htm
What a wonderful film you have missed if you haven't seen "Rendezvous" with William Powell and Rosalind Russell! You really must watch it at least twice to get all of the wonderful ways that Powell and Russell work together so beautifully. And what a great comedy this is! It was filmed in 1935, so this is a very early work of theirs, but PLEASE if any of you agree that this is a forgotten masterpiece, let me know. I would love to discuss it..
