I loved this documentary duo. It was fun to see both sides of the Charles family.
Two Classy People

"William Powell was a dapper gentlemen whose career transcended the silent screen to the sound screen. He appeared in many movies first as a villain, then as a detective, and later as a wealthy aristocratic type. Myrna Loy followed a similar career. She often played exotic seductresses in her early films, then transitioned to motherly roles. Both found a hit when they appeared together in The Thin Man, which became a the longest running movie series starring a famous pair in history.
As the title of this DVD suggests, the documentaries both spend a great length of time talking about Powell and Loy's involvement in The Thin Man series. The rest of their lives are brushed by quickly as to have enough time to talk about their pairing. However, neither film had to be rushed as each are well under an hour long. It would have been more satisfying if the documentaries were more thorough.
Also included here is a radio show starring Powell and Loy, and a television episode modelled after The Thin Man with a different cast."
