Outlaws come and go in Nick and Nora's lives. Now it's time to meet the in-laws. The debonair sleuths leave little Nicky Jr. at boarding school, grab Asta and head to Nick's boyhood home of Sycamore Springs. Of course, wherever they go, murder has a way of showing up on the doorstep - a point proven in this fifth Thin Man. Nick can show off his gumshoe talents for his parents (Harry Davenport and Lucile Watson) when an artist is killed. And he'll do it without customary liquid inspirations because Nick (William Powell) is on the wagon. He's also on his game. As is Nora (Myrna Loy), wrestling a folding lawn chair, tailing a presumed suspect through town, igniting a pool-hall rumble and cracking wise as good as she gets. Make yourself at home, whodunit fans.
Gentle family entertainment
- The Thin Man Goes Home review by CP Customer
Very little in the way of a serious plot and the final scene where the 'Thin Man' does the classic Miss Marple; gathering around all the suspects in one room will draw gasps out of you as gaze in admiration as the INCREDIBLE powers of deduction. Good family fun though with a lovely gentle humorous thread throughout.
