Nick and Nora Charles cordially invite you to bring your own alibi to The Thin Man, the jaunty whodunit that made William Powell and Myrna Loy the champagne elite of sleuthing, Bantering in the boudoir, enjoying walks with beloved dog Asta or matching each other highball for highball and clue for clue, they combined screwball romance with mystery. The resulting triumph nabbed four Academy Award nominations (including Best Picture) and spawned five sequels. Credit W.S. " Woody" Van Dyke for recognizing that Powell and Loy were ideal together and for getting the studio's okay by promising to shoot this splendid adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's novel in three weeks. He took 12 days.
They didn't call him "One-Take Woody" for nothing.

The Thin Man - The Thin Man review by LJ

Spoiler Alert

An utterly loopy comedy mystery, the talk-your-ear-off everyone’s-a-screwball style you only get in the 30s, with a delightful husband and wife relationship.

An absorbing, fun and occasionally astonishing whodunnit. - The Thin Man review by ND

Spoiler Alert

This old film is well worth watching. In many ways it's Hollywood at its zenith. The script is superb, the acting is good (apart from some awful bit-part players) the black-and-white camerawork is utterly professional and it cracks along at a good pace.

The cigarette and cocktail consumption is amazing. Watch this film, it's witty and enjoyable.
