3 Things

Song of the Thin Man [1947]

1. “Give me my pipe, slippers and a beautiful woman … and you can keep the pipe and slippers.”
2. Earliest use (that I’ve seen) of the tracking shot that Spike Lee made famous: the character/camera move as one and the background receeds or enlarges behind them.
3. “I’m halfway under the table already–and not in the way I usually like to be.”
