The Thin Woman

I always had a soft spot in my heart for actress Myrna Loy, so when I had an opportunity to see her in the film The Thin Man on Saturday night, I grabbed it.

It has been a long time (many decades) since I saw the film, so it was as if I had never seen it before. I was not disappointed.

It is a fun film and Miss Loy was wonderful in it. And I fell in love with her wardrobe in the film especially the striped dress she is wearing in the Femulate Her image below. 

I hope you like the changes I made in Femulate over the weekend. Moving The Femulated and Femulate Her images from the left sidebar to the center column offers the following images over the previous arrangement:

1) The images are almost twice the size as they were still in the left sidebar. I think bigger is better in this case.

2) The images do not disappear when I post new The Femulated and Femulate Her images. They will exist for posterity as long as Femulate remains exists.

I just wonder why it took me so long to think up this improvement.

By the way, if you have any suggestions for improving Femulate, please pass them along.


  1. It's also fun to observe how the world changed since The Thin Man. I saw a few of them about a year ago and they had... a public phone with a crank and the separate mouthpiece and a steam train running from Coney Island to Long Island. They also refused to let Nick into a nightclub because he was only wearing a Tuxedo, not the requisite white-tie-and-tails.

    But Nora was definitely, if not The Thin Woman, then The Slinky Woman.

  2. Yes.... It's amazing how much the world has changed since that movie was made. But I always held a secret wish that I could dress as pretty as Myrna Loy did.

  3. Dear Stana,

    I also love THE THIN MAN films. Myrna Loy and William Powell had such great chemistry, and cutie dog Asta was wonderful, too. There were at least 3 THIN MAN films.



  4. Sheila --- There were five sequels to The Thin Man:
    After the Thin Man (1936)
    Another Thin Man (1939)
    Shadow of the Thin Man (1941)
    The Thin Man Goes Home (1945)
    Song of the Thin Man (1947)
