BEHIND THE REEL

THE THIN MAN was one of the top-ten money-makers of 1934 and one of the biggest hits of William Powell’s and Myrna Loy’s careers. In addition, it earned four Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Director and Best Actor. It was also named one of the top ten films of the year by FD and NYT. The film was shot in only sixteen days. Though many films of the era were shot within a ten to fifteen day period, sixteen days was considered very quick for a major film such as The Thin Man. The speed of this film and others shot by director W. S. Van Dyke led to his nickname, “One Shot Woody.”
