Lee & Daniel are back this week to solve some cases while hammered. This time out it's the comedy detective film "The Thin Man" (1934), directed by W.S. Van Dyke, based on a book by Dashiell Hammett. Much is made of the greatness of William Powell & Myrna Loy's on-screen chemistry, and just how well this film still plays in 2020. Things talked about: drinking all the time; what this series feels like it has influenced; what a new Thin Man series could be like, including casting thoughts; and how this film balances its comedy with the more serious elements. Listener comments are also covered.
