The Thin Man (1934)

The Thin Man (1934)

Released between the end of Prohibition and the onset of the moralising Hays Code, The Thin Man features a husband-and-wife detective duo who gleefully ramp up the sexual innuendo while imbibing booze by the bucketload. Heaven only knows how Johnny Depp's planned remake will slip all that past the MPAA.
