Product Details


Product Description

Manhattan Melodrama (1934) showcases Powell and Clark Gable as longtime friends on opposite sides of the law, and is the first pairing of Loy and Powell (and the first of four films they would make in 1934 alone. The film is briskly directed and the crackling screenplay won an Oscar the next year. Evelyn Prentice (1934) is the troubled wife (Loy) of a preoccupied attorney (Powell) who appears oblivious. The story isn't one of the strongest in the collection, but the cast sparkles nonetheless. A witchy Rosalind Russell makes her memorable film debut as a femme fatale. Double Wedding (1937) lets Loy and Powell flex their comedic chops. The plot is full of switchbacks and misunderstandings, but the key point is that their pal Waldo (John Beal) is that dreaded '30s male screen archetype, the milquetoast. Much of the film's fun is watching Powell's character coach poor Waldo to grow a backbone: "Women don't like noble, self-sacrificing men. Women are not civilized like we are. They like bloodshed!" I Love You Again (1940) is one of the top screwball comedies of all time. George (Powell) is bonked on the head and realizes he's had amnesia for the past several years, has been terribly boring and has been, yes, a milquetoast--who's about to be divorced by his fed-up wife, Kay (Loy). The crazy plot is lofted by the brilliant screenplay and the delivery of the two leads, who spar like expert fencers: George: "You be careful, madam, or you'll turn my pretty head with your flattery!" Kay: "I often wished I could turn your head--on a spit, over a slow fire." Divine! Love Crazy (1941) is another classic farce, featuring Powell in drag, Powell faking insanity, Powell conniving to win back Loy's love--all in a witty, urbane way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must have for Myrna Loy and William Powell fans Jan. 6 2013
By Inkspot

Being a big fan of their Thin Man series, I wanted to see more of Myrna Loy and William Powell, this set provides you with two dramas, Manhattan Melodrama and Evelyn Prentice plus two comedies, Double Wedding and I Love You Again. My favourite of the four is Double Wedding but I did enjoy all the movies. Recommended.

Even though their presence is not the same as in The Thin Man movies, with main or dominant roles, the actors are still the classic Myrna Loy and William Powell.
Interesting also is their interaction with other actors , and the quality of the DVD's is excellent.

A great collection! We loved it! For older movies the picture and sound quality are quite good. We got it at a very reasonable price too, at the time. No problems at all with delivery or packaging. Thanks

These two actors have great chemistry and any movie they do together is well worth seeing. You get a bunch of classic movies at a great price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but limited March 18 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The movies are good but you cant watch them right after one another. It seems like the actors play the same kind of roles with just different names and settings.
