Movieland Wax Museum- The Thin Man

This shot from the 1934 movie, The Thin Man, shows William Powell and Myrna Loy in an amusing, yet slightly morbid scene. Powell plays Nick Charles, a retired detective and Loy is Nora, his wife.

Here's another view without the flash.

A close up Powell. Although he looks it, he actually is not the thin man.

A close up of the smiling Myrna Loy figure.

This small version of Asta the dog was once an animatronic figure. You can see how the arms are made to swing.

The clapboard sign, showing information on the film.

The William Powell figure sold for an impressive $3,000. The Myrna Loy figure sold for $700, and the set sold for $500. That included Asta the dog and a male extra figure that was lying on the couch. I'm not sure how detailed that figure was.
