Hollywood revival Nick and Nora
 
Revival seems to be the word in Hollywood. Just as Sherlock Holmes was a revival, I see that a Nick and Nora Charles film is planned which is based on the characters in a film adaptation of The Thin Man . Nick Charles was portrayed by William Powell. Nora was portrayed by Myrna Loy. The on-screen chemistry between Powell and Loy, who often improvised on the set, was key to the wild success of the series and quickly became a defining feature of the characters. The films revolutionized the screen portrayal of marriage - previously earnest, virtuous, and staid - invigorating it with youth, irreverence, and sex appeal. Taking their cue from Hammett's humorous dialogue and comedy of manners elements, the movies moved even further from the traditional hard-boiled approach. The dog Asta - an integral character in the movies was a male wire fox terrier. In my opinion, in order for the next production of the Nick and Nora movie to be a success, they are going to have to find characters who acted as well as William Powell and Myrna Loy did.

I see that there is a Nick and Nora's Steakhouse on the Carnival Miracle. I was wondering what cruisemates thought of it.

Hollywood Revivial Nick and Nora
 
I would love it if they did it right, meaning proper casting and not modernized.

I don't care for the Sherlock Holmes series of t.v. I don't care for the actor who plays Sherlock and I don't like the modernization.

I would cast Robert Downey ,Jr. as Nick and Anne Hathaway as Nora .

Approximately 20 years ago I developed a TV show in which Gomez and Morticia Adams were portraying Nick and Nora .It was to be a satirization but alas I was not able to gain network interest .

Maybe Downey and Hathaway are the best choices.

It is going to be tough to find two actors today who can produce the results of the North husband and wife detective team. The actors projected the illusion that they loved each other, and even that they liked each other. It's going to be tough for the producers and the actors.

With all the somewhat wild productions that are going on in Hollywood you might be able to sell your idea today.
