One of Hollywood's most perfectly matched screen teams, sophisticates Myrna Loy and William Powell left a film legacy that went well beyond the classic Thin Man series. With an Oscar-winning screenplay, Manhattan Melodrama (1934) showcases Powell and Clark Gable as boyhood friends on opposite sides of the law, with Loy their mutual love interest. In Evelyn Prentice (1934), Loy is the troubled wife of a preoccupied attorney (Powell); Rosalind Russell made her film debut in this one. In Double Wedding (1937), successful businesswoman Margit Agnew (Loy) is unhappy to learn that her little sister is planning to marry vagabond Charlie Lodge (Powell), while the farcical Love Crazy (1941) puts Powell in drag and has him faking insanity to win back his lady love. But the crème de la crème is the screwball gem I Love You Again (1940). Powell plays rich stuffed shirt Larry Wilson. After being hit in the head, he realizes he is actually con man George Carey who had been suffering from amnesia. All thoughts of chicanery are off when Carey meets Wilson's estranged wife and is smitten. Bonus features include cartoons, shorts, and a radio adaptation of Love Crazy with Powell.

"The lucid self-possession in confronting their male counterparts found its most intelligent an ironic exponent in Myrna Loy."—Italo Calvino
