The film adaptation of The Thin Man was a resounding success.

Although Hammett never wrote another novel with Nick and Nora Charles, five movie sequels were produced, two of which were adapted by Warner Brother's writers from two original Hammett works written after the success of the first film.

It's been a while (more than 2 years and I have a lot of updating to do) since I have posted my cakes on this blog and I am once more "Cake Decorator of the Week" over at, one of the best cake decorating websites in the world.

This time, It was after I had posted my son Ethan's most recent structured and gravity defying birthday cake "Scarlet Overkill & Bob the Minion".

Now diversified into lumber, railroads, etc., Nora's fortune is apparently vast and is managed for the couple by her father's former partner who lives in an estate on Long Island's North Shore "Gold Coast".

Nora is also shown to have a network of blue-blood relatives and friends in San Francisco society, while Nick is a beloved celebrity among the criminal classes and those who associate with them (such as police, athletes, nightclub owners, etc.) Hugely popular with audiences, the films employed the common murder mystery trope—familiar from English detective stories such as Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express—of assembling all of the characters for the climactic revelation of the culprit.

Nick is an alcoholic former private detective who retired when he married Nora, a wealthy Nob Hill heiress.

Hammett reportedly modeled Nora on his longtime partner Lillian Hellman, and the characters' boozy, flippant repartee on their relationship.

The films revolutionized the screen portrayal of marriage—previously earnest, virtuous, and staid—invigorating it with youth, irreverence, and sex appeal.
