See these films: The Thin Man + After the Thin Man @ the Brattle

Long ago, detectives in movies could drink martinis, smoke, banter with their spouses, and treat every night as if it were New Year's Eve - detectives like Dashiell Hammett's inimitable PI pair Nick and Nora Charles, played by William Powell and Myrna Loy. So it's fitting that the Brattle Theatre usher in the new year with two of the pair's best films, both directed by W.S. Van Dyke: The Thin Man (1934; 2:30 + 7 pm) and After the Thin Man (1936; 4:30 + 9 pm). See if they can solve a case before the next cocktail hour!
