Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A rollicking adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s bestselling detective novel, this delightful hybrid of screwball comedy and murder mystery was a critical and commercial smash; it ultimately spawned five sequels, a radio show, and a TV series. Nearly 70 years after its theatrical release, The Thin Man hasn’t lost an iota of its charm. William Powell and Myrna Loy are in peak form as Nick and Nora Charles, wealthy sophisticates whose Christmas-season visit to New York is disrupted by the disappearance of an old friend accused of murder. Nick, a former detective who gave up gumshoeing when he married heiress Nora, becomes embroiled in the search for the killer and very nearly loses his own life in the bargain. Maureen O’Sullivan, Nat Pendleton, Edward Ellis, and a young Cesar Romero are cast perfectly to type and lend admirable support, but it’s just icing on the cake: Powell and Loy effortlessly dominate the film with their breezy portrayals of these perpetually sloshed sleuths. The Frances Goodrich-Albert Hackett script brims with clever dialogue, some of it rather risqué, and director W. S. Van Dyke (San Francisco) reportedly shot the whole movie in less than three weeks, his breakneck pace resulting in loose, improvisational performances. An Academy Award nominee for Best Picture, The Thin Man is a classic '30s movie that belongs in every serious collector’s home library. The DVD includes trailers for all six Thin Man movies.
