Life This Week: January 9, 1939

The always-adorable Myrna Loy stars in this 1939 De Soto ad. It mentions that Ms. Loy's next film will be Another Thin Man. I'm always up for watching a Thin Man movie and I couldn't for the life of me find the "Movie of the Week," Zaza, starring Claudette Colbert and Herbert Marshall (anyone know if it even still exists?). So, I got Another Thin Man from Netflix and had a thoroughly good time. Sure, the plot is a bit convoluted, but William Powell and Myrna Loy are as charming as ever. Definitely recommended.

You'll have to pardon me for not testing this week's Baker's Chocolate recipe myself. Paul's grandmother isn't doing well and we're going to visit her in the hospital today. I'm not sure what our plans will be for the next few days, so I didn't want any leftovers hanging around the house if I could help it.

However, the Delicious Chocolate Cottage Pudding does indeed sound delicious. If you try it out, please let me know!


  1. Love those old school actors - so elegant. I haven't heard of a De Soto since Happy Days! The pudding sounds delish. Hope Paul's grandmother gets well soon.

  2. Myrna Loy is fabulous in the ad and in her still! Maybe I can get your Dad to try out the pudding!

  3. Love Myrna. My uncle was friends with her in later years. Hope your husband's grandmother is on the mend soon!

  4. Another classic film that I need to watch! Thanks for reminding us about these wonderful old films! And the pudding sounds delicious. I would love to try making it.

  5. Hope your husband's grandmother feels better soon!
