The Thin Man (23-May-1934)|
Director: W. S. Van Dyke
Writers: Albert Hackett; Frances Goodrich
From novel by: Dashiell Hammett
Musical Score by: Dr. William Axt
Producer: Hunt Stromberg
Keywords: Mystery, Comedy, The Thin Man
A woman is murdered and her former lover, a scientist (the Thin Man), is missing and a prime suspect. Newlyweds Nick and Nora Charles are badgered into looking into the mystery and later hold a dinner party where hopefully, all will be exposed. This hardboiled plot, however, is secondary to the chemistry of William Powell and Myrna Loy, who are hard drinking, delightfully sarcastic, and a joy to watch. Intended as a simple mystery programmer, five sequels followed.
