Sometimes Marriage Doesn’t Look So Bad.

Was there ever a better married couple than Nick and Nora Charles? No one is going to answer that so I am just going to go ahead and answer for you. No.

As the main characters of Dashiell Hammett’s novel The Thin Man and the subsequent six films based off it, Nick and Nora Charles (played by the incandescently awesome William Powell and Myrna Loy) are great for so many reasons. Here are a few.

1) They solve crimes.

2) They solve crimes while drinking.

3) They solve crimes with drinking and bantering amusingly with one another.

4) They have a dog named Asta who’s actually sort of cute. For a dog.

Well, I can’t say it better than they can.
