I Love You Again (1940)

William Powell, Myrna Loy, Frank McHugh. Dir: W.S. Van Dyke 

Remember the movie rule I posted the other day that said, “If William Powell and Myrna Loy are in a movie together, watch it,”? 341 more words

After the Thin Man (1936)

William Powell, Myrna Loy, James Stewart. Dir: W.S. Van Dyke

I have, more than once, mentioned my movie rule “If William Powell and Myrna Loy are in a movie together, watch it.” I could say, “If there is a movie with the words ‘Thin Man’ in the title, watch it,” but the previous rule supersedes it. 550 more words

Topaze (1933)

John Barrymore, Myrna Loy. Dir: Harry d’Abbadie d’Arrast

This Barrymore character is unlike any other. He doesn’t buckle any swashes, he doesn’t turn into a beast, he doesn’t dress fancy or chase women around, he doesn’t commit suicide or get murdered. 220 more words

Libeled Lady (1936)

William Powell, Myrna Loy, Spencer Tracy, Jean Harlow. Dir: Jack Conway.

I realize I harp on this every time I write about William Powell and Myrna Loy movies (movie rule indicating that you are required to see any movie they did together, you know), but there are 14 reasons why, and this is one of them. 534 more words
