Vintage Fashion Flick: The Thin Man

In Vintage Fashion Films on July 1, 2010 at 7:44 pm

We’re wildly in love with Myrna Loy.   We’re especially in love with her in The Thin Man.

Hollywood lore says that Myrna actually wasn’t actually going to be cast as Nora in the screen version of Dashiell Hammett’s Thin Man novel, but while at a rather raucous party, the director pushed Myrna into the pool to see how she’d react.  Apparently, she reacted favorably, because she got the role!

Myrna’s sass and excellent wardrobe stole the show:  And also stole the hearts of 4 husbands, all of whom Myrna married and divorced.

We really want this striped dress from the film.

And Myrna’s Christmas shopping coat.

Mostly we admire a woman who can down 6 martinis.

Don’t forget to see what we’ve got in stock today at www.FiftyDollarVintage.com!
