    Another Thin Man (MGM, 1939). One Sheet (27" X 41") Style C.
    In the third installment of the Thin Man series, adapted from Dashiell Hammett's "The Farewell Murder," we find William Powell and Myrna Loy once again reprising their roles as Nick and Nora Charles, one of the most endearing screen couples of all times. Their amazing chemistry and sophisticated, witty charm that is so prevalent in all their work is a joy to watch. There is a new arrival on the scene in this film, the 8-month-old Nick Charles, Jr. (William A. Poulsen). In one of the many comic moments of this mystery, Nick is asked 'What's the idea of the kid?" upon which he replies with his dry, deadpan humor "Well, we have a dog, and he was lonesome. That was the idea, wasn't it, Mommy?" That dog of course was Asta, one of the most memorable canine characters in film history. This murder mystery, filled with as many laughs as chills, takes place at the elegant but eerie Long Island estate of Nora's deceased father's business partner, the blustery old curmudgeon, Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith). Other notable cast members include the lovely Virginia Grey, and a young Ruth Hussey. The poster had small edge tears, crossfold separations and a small bend in the lower left corner, all of which have been addressed through expert restoration, making this rare Style C one sheet that we have never before offered, a truly exciting find. Very Fine- on Linen.
