This is Great!!!
The fact that "The Thin Man" series in on iTunes is the best thing I've seen all year. That being said I would really like to see the the last three installments of the series. They remind me of I was growing up. Please oh great ones at iTunes please make these movies available that would make my day.
Best of the best
The best of the 'Thin Man' series, the best William Powell/Myrna Loy movie, the most ingenious blend of detective film and screwball comedy imaginable, and the coolest Christmas movie ever (yes, it does take place over Christmas.) An absolute must-see for any fan of classic American films.
