After The Thin Man, U.S. 1 Sheet Style "C"

Far from a dog's life.

The unintended consequeces of casting "Skippy", the wirefox terrier, as Nick Charles' slueth understudy in The Thin Man, forced MGM's promotional department to prominently place Asta's character on all promotional pieces moving forward. Audiences demanded more Asta moments and subsequently made the wirefox terrier the most popular breed in 1930's America.

Skippy, who played Asta Charles for the first 4 films, was retired and replaced by offspring "Asta Jr.", a canine who's real-life name was Asta Jr. For the last Thin Man installment, Song of The Thin Man, another son named "Zip" was cast. Look closely and you'll spot the different spots differentiating the canine actors apart.

Above: Two examples, for the alternate variation, of After The Thin Man, 1936 - Belgium one-sheet moive posters, measuing 33in x 24in. In the style of the U.S. window cards, Belgium movie posters provided a small "swipe" atop the poster for the movie theater to place their stamp indicating theater name, calendar date, screen times and a reminder to leave your children at home. - "Enfant Non Admis"

Original Belgium release movie posters often sill have their censor stamp intact, as seen above on both posters.
