trailer tuesday

this week's entry is for the thin man goes home (1945). in just a few short hours i shall be in my accustomed seat in row q of the lovely paramount theater taking in a double feature of this and another thin man (1941). these are the fifth and third entries in the thin man series of films, respectively. while the series began with an adaptation of the dashiell hammett novel of the same name, by the time we get to this fifth installment we have strayed pretty far from the source material. the setting is considerably less urban than where we start from. fortunately, nick and nora are no less urbane. austin friends, i am headed down there at about 6 p.m. (in time to catch the pre-screening performance by radio park at 6:30) if you would like to join me.
