Myrna Loy and William Powell in The Thin Man
“Would you like a drink?”
“It’s a little early, isn’t it?”
“Too early for a drink?”
“No! Too early for stupid questions! Of course I want a drink!”

Found at Old Hollywood.
Where in The Thin Man is that quote? I practically have that movie memorized and I don't recall it. Oh, maybe it's in the book and not the movie? I need to get a copy of Hammet's book.ReplyDelete
Good observation, stonemaven. The scene from which the screencap wasobtained occurs at the fifteen-minute mark (view it here -ReplyDelete
...but the quoted dialogue isn't from that scene. Perhaps it comes from "After the Thin Man" or "Another Thin Man" or one of the others.
I suppose it could even come from some other movie.
I will have to use that quote one day.ReplyDelete
