Re: The Thin Man Question #14 - Were you surprised?

I was surprised. My imagination really went wild with the ending. Gilbert was high on my list, especially since the letter that he had with him when he was caught at Julia's apartment was written in a completely different voice and style than the other letters. The first thing I thought was that he ...

Re: The Thin Man Question #18 ~ Setting

I think it would be interesting to have the movie set in both the 30's and in modern times. Perhaps something along the lines of the recent Julia Child movie starring Meryl Streep. I think the only thing at the core that has changed between then and now is the technology. The modern day Wall Street ...

Re: The Thin Man Question #5 - Violence

I was surprised by the violence as well. The fact that Gilbert was experimenting on Dorothy with morphine caused me to wonder if these so called mother beatings were staged somehow. I had a hard time accepting the Nick's final verdict. I really came to wonder if they all came together to stage the m...

Absolutely loved the book :loveshower: . Thank you Ann for such a great read and thanks to all at the Zone for the discussion. I am a little puzzled about some things that came to mind after the official time to submit questions to Ann had passed. Early last Spring I took my children to a Egyptian M...

Re: TPOF Question #16 ~ Robby

Maybe Robbie found himself confined in the structure of the Church, realized he too sought freedom and came back to join Jack later as a pirate. :capnjack:

Re: TPOF Question #24 ~ The Pearl

Robbie starts to tell Jack of the parable, but Jack cuts Robbie off before he can finish. So Jack does not know the complete story of the parable.

Re: TPOF Question #17 ~ Jack and the Ladies

Perhaps it is exactly his love of freedom that keeps him from capturing and taking away freedom from these ladies. He wishes them to be free as he is to pursue his desires.
