A Thin Slice Of The Thin Man

________________________________________________________________________________________________


"Nick Charles"
The Thin Man

As portrayed by
William Powell
 
There was no crime
he could not sleuth

As long as he had
his vermouth

 
Nick Charles
had his Nora
  
Prettier than
a bouquet
of flora

 
She was funnier
than a tub of joy

As portrayed
by  Myrna Loy
     
   
Nick and Nora had
their pooch

Nick and Nora had
their hooch
           
    
They gave 
bad guys
the noose (how?)

They sent them
to the hoosegow!

And all the bad girls 
had so much fun
until they got hit:

Nora knocked them out 
with just the right wit

  1. This series from lighter years,
    here, looks a bit eerie and dark

    1. Exactly...

      this shot was taken off the TV screen
      and naturally gives a dark doomed look.
