How Nick and Nora Drink the Manhattan, the Martini, and the Bronx Cocktail.
“The Thin Man” is still celebrated as the epitome of cocktail elegance. Besides witty dialogue, this series of six films with William Powelland Myrna Loy dabbles in mysteries, Martinis, and romance. Powell is NickCharles, an elegant, urbane detective, and Nora is his stylish, sexy wife.
These are movies in which the main characters start drinking when they get outof bed in the morning and don’t stop till the case is solved several dayslater. (In one scene, William Powell instructs his bartender on the ‘finer’ artof shaking. “The important thing is the rhythm. Always have rhythm in yourshaking. Now a Manhattan you always shake to fox-trot time, a Bronx to two-steptime, a Dry Martini you always shake to waltz time”).
