The Thin Man

William Powell and Myrna Loy star as Nick and Nora Charles in director W.S. Van Dyke’s big screen adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s mystery novel The Thin Man. Nick and Nora are a hard drinking, moneyed couple bored with their cushy life, who get involved in a high society murder investigation. Nick is a retired detective who handily beats the police at their own game, attempting to sleuth his way to the killer’s identity. All the while he’s accompanied by his witty wife Nora and their trusty canine companion Asta. The film that launched a franchise, The Thin Man is still as humorous today as it was when it first delighted audiences more than 80 years ago.

“William Powell is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance.” – Roger Ebert

“An excellent combination of comedy and excitement”- Mordaunt Hall, The New York Times

Another Thin Man

Back by popular demand, William Powell and Myrna Loy return as sophisticated amateur sleuths Nick and Nora Charles in the third film in the witty Thin Man series. But this time there’s a twist – they have a tyke in tow! Summoned to the Long Island estate of a munitions manufacturer, their host promptly turns up dead and Nick & Nora will have to unravel the murder mystery while balancing the babysitting needs of their new 8-month-old.

“This third of the trademarked Thin Men takes its murders as jauntily as ever, confirms our impression that matrimony need not be too serious a business and provides as light an entertainment as any holiday-amusement seeker is likely to find.” – Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times
