Six Weeks With the Thin Man: After the Thin Man (1936)

Happy Holidays from Ticklish Business! We’re off for the holidays so we’re pulling from the Patreon vault!

Emily and Kristen are back to discuss the first Thin Man sequel (and the only one nominated for an Oscar). After the Thin Man is oft-considered the best Thin Man sequel. We discuss whether that’s true, as well as Jimmy Stewart’s unique performance, and why Bill Powell and Myrna Loy’s off-screen relationship is relevant today. 

Kristen’s written a new book for TCM and Running Press called But Have You Read the Book? all about film adaptations! You can pre-order it now before its March 7th release date.

Reviews matter and you can help us out by giving us 5 stars on Apple Podcasts! Also, tell your friends to like and subscribe to our PatreonInstagramTwitter and YouTube channels!
