In checking the (meager) visitor stats for the blog, it was nice to see that TCM's Thin Man Marathon inspired people to look up the movies and its stars. A popular search term was "Myrna Loy's Thin Man Outfits", so it leaves me hopeful that today's audiences can still be bowled over by a seventy-five year-old film. The dress pictured above is Myrna's greatest. It's not up to the level of Ginger Rogers' Swing Time dress, but it certainly places second. I hope TCM's marathon gives them enough confidence to air the "Fast" films (Fast Company; Fast and Loose; Fast and Furious) along with Star of Midnight and The Ex-Mrs. Bradford. I know that I'd be pleased as punch to sit still for that brief time in Heaven!
