In the opening sequence when the credits run, Nick and Nora pull up with their dog Asta in an unusual very limited production car. It is an Italian bodied Dual Ghia with Chrysler underpinnings, frame, and engine. The sophisticated couple with their dog in tote going on adventures each week probably was at least in part an inspiration for the later day Hart to Hart (1979). The resemblance of Phyllis Kirk to Stefanie Powers and Peter Lawford to Robert Wagner seems more than a coincidence. See more »
I was a child when "The Thin Man" was on television but for some reason, I remember it very clearly. I think I was completely captivated by the sheer sophistication of Nick and Nora Charles and the fact that they lived in an apartment in New York City. Growing up in a house and not in New York City, this was fascinating to me.
What I remember most is how beautiful Phyllis Kirk was and what glorious clothes she wore. I wish I could see this series today to find out if it's as I remember it. Kirk and Lawford seemed a most glamorous couple, and I have a feeling their relationship colored my own ideas about an ideal marriage - rich and childless.
This show was an attempt by MGM to get into TV and capitalize on one of their properties, and it didn't make it. Many years later, I had a chance to see the wonderful movies on which the series was based. I can't draw a comparison because I only remember the clothes and sophistication from the TV show. I guess that says something.
