    After the Thin Man Photos. Myrna Loy: "I read where you were shot five times in the tabloids." William Powell: "It's not true. He didn't come anywhere near my tabloids." Powell and Loy were so scintillatingly attractive in The Thin Man (1934), trading the clever quips with such chemistry that a great film series was born. After the Thin Man (1936) was the first sequel, and this lot features two 14" x 17" publicity portraits of Powell and Loy as Nick and Nora Charles. Shot one (marked # 8 in the bottom right corner ) shows Powell and Loy close together, she playing a ukulele and both apparently singing. Shot two (marked #6) shows Powell, Loy and Asta all peering into an ice box. After the Thin Man A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Picture is printed on both photos. The ice box shot has a flaw, a small white streak on Powell's robe, which might have been on the negative. Very Good condition. These are attractive items for two of the most sophisticated stars and one of the most popular series from vintage MGM.
