A William Powell trench coat from Song of the Thin Man
MGM, 1947. Tan trench coat with second set of shoulder lapels, oversized pockets, and belt, bearing an interior label inscribed, "Bullock's Wilshire / 1-8-34 / 9504." Marking the end of an era, the screen team of William Powell and Myrna Loy made their last of the "Thin Man" series with Song of the Thin Man. The first of the series had been made 13 years prior in 1934, and the current script did a good job of realistically aging Nick and Nora Charles (they now had a young son played by Dean Stockwell) without stuffiness and without taking away any of their charm. Powell's sophisticated characterization of Nick Charles has proven with time to be the role that the public remembers best, and his partnership with Loy remains one of filmdom's most prolific and beloved screen duos. Accompanied by a vintage photo of Powell on the set wearing the coat.
