Look what we got for Christmas! It's a movie starring my favorite actor, Asta! College Kid brought home the fourth movie of the Thin Man series, Shadow of the Thin Man. There are a couple of minor actors named William Powell and Myrna Loy in it, too, but we all know that Asta is the real talent in the film.
Here's a bit of trivia I found when researching this movie. After Nick (William Powell) gets off a merry-go-round, there is a close-up of Asta also jumping off the merry-go-round. If you look closely, you can see the straps and fishing line attached to Asta's legs. They used it to make him walk like he was dizzy from going in circles. There's also a scene where you can see a reflection of someone giving Asta his cues.
Yeah, as if Asta needed any help acting. He was a talented pup, and except for that little mishap where he nipped Myrna Loy for bothering him, a true professional in his movie career.
So when the ice and snow blows in later tonight, we're going to be curled up with some popcorn and fudge and watching my favorite film star in action. We hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season, too!
