KAFM Film Series-The Thin Man
Add to your calendar
Date: September 5, 7:00 pm
Location: The Radio Room
Details: The Thin Man (1934) is the first installment of a popular series of films casting a sophisticated, glamorous, pleasure-seeking, and urbane husband-wife detective team (William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles). Director W.S. Van Dyke had previously directed Manhattan Melodrama (1934), in which stars Powell and Loy had displayed their unique and charming chemistry in their first of 14 film pairings.  The film was such a success it spawned 5 sequels.   In 2002, critic Roger Ebert added the film to his list of Great Movies.  Ebert praised William Powell's performance in particular, stating that Powell "is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance. His delivery is so droll and insinuating, so knowing and innocent at the same time, that it hardly matters what he's saying."
In 1997, the film was added to the United States National Film Registry having been deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant." In 2000 American Film Institute designated the film as one of the great comedies in the previous hundred years of cinema.  Doors open at 6:30, Show starts at 7pm.  Tickets are $5.   Popcorn, candy and drinks available
General Admission: $5.00
