That's a great shot of Myrna, she's so damn cute. Call me corny, but I LOVE the ending shot of the dog covering his eyes as they kiss.

Not corny at all Adam as I feel the same way. Thanks so much for the comments and I agree about Myrna as well.

Very cool. I love The Thin Man movies. Myrna Loy was always one of my favorite classic actresses. Besides these movies, I loved her acting opposite Cary Grant.

Thanks Keith...I love the series as well with my favorite being the first. I love Myrna's pics with Cary as well...what a team!

Gorgeous images! Makes me want to pull out the great DVD box set of a few years ago. And, yes, Myrna was one of the greatest to emerge from any era. If you can, look for some of her quotes about Clark Gable and, later, Ronald Reagan. She didn't mince words--one more reason to love her! Unlike like a lot of stars, particularly from her era--ahem, Reagan--she remained devoted to liberal causes to the very end. There's a bio out there somewhere but it's OOP.

Thanks Ned,
Myrna truly was out of sight. I will need to track down a copy of her book as I have never read it...
