Thin Man Goes Home


Recommended Posts

It's supposed to be Grand Central Terminal. I believe MGM had a "permanent" set of Grand Central since it was used so often. Thin Man Goes Home was released the same year as Minnelli's The Clock in which Grand Central was also a key locale.

Not a "permanent" set in the sense that a TV series keep sets standing on a soundstage (often adding to them over the years) all through the show's run, or Universal's leaving the 1925 PHANTOM OF THE OPERA theatre standing for over seventy years; like all studios during the "Golden Age," MGM stored the components from its sets in "scene docks," that could be reassembled as necessary. The Grand Central Station set components were obviously used frequently.


In a similar vein, the GCT sets built at Fox for HELLO, DOLLY! (1969) were re-used (in wildly re-dressed form) in BENEATH THE PLANET OF THE APES (1970).
