Editorial Reviews

Dum-Dum, Wacky, Creeps, Fingers: They're just a few of the hoodlums in the world of amateur sleuths and professional bon vivants Nick and Nora Charles. And now there's a new hood: parenthood. A birthday party - make that boithday - that some of da boys hold for infant Nick Jr. is part of the fun in this third film in the witty series. The case begins when the Charles family arrives for a weekend with a Long Island industrialist who fears someone wants to kill him. Sure enough, his fears come true. Nick (William Powell) is among the suspects. Asta scrams with what may be the murder weapon. And Nora (Myrna Loy) has her own ideas about the case and sneaks off to a nightclub to ferret out a clue. "Madam, how long have you been leading this double life?" Nick asks. "Just since we've been married," she replies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another enjoyable "Thin Man" August 20, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Nick and Nora are back, this time with a child, in this top-notch sequel. While the behavior of both Nick and Nora is slightly more reserved than in the first two entries, they still have delightful interaction with each other and with the new member of their family. Some really funny moments, such as Nora trying to identify her anonymous contact in the club - with Nick watching and Nick Jr.'s birthday party. The murder mystery pales in comparison to the first, but the performance of Powell and Loy is what really makes the series entertaining. A very worthy sequel!

The third installment in the "Thin Man" series, "Another Thin Man" (1939) was the last episode to which writer Dashiell Hammett would contribute. Hammett provided the story; Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett reunited for the screenplay -also for the last time; and W. S. Van Dyke returned to direct William Powell and Myrna Loy as comic detective duo Nick and Nora Charles. "Another Thin Man" finds the Charleses back East again with a nearly one-year-old son, Nick Jr. and dog Asta in tow. Just as they arrive in New York, Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith), who had been Nora's father's business partner, insists that Nick and Nora visit his Long Island estate on a matter of some urgency. MacFay is being shaken down and harassed by former employee Phil Church (Sheldon Leonard), whom MacFay believes means to kill him. Ever the reluctant detective, Nick is compelled to take the case on when MacFay's fears become reality.

"Another Thin Man" isn't as witty or charming as 1934's "The Thin Man", but very few films since then have been. William Powell and Myrna Loy still have great chemistry and comic timing -although I find it grating when Nick calls his wife "Mommy". As usual, the murder case is chaos and the solution strained. But this is pretty good light entertainment. Nick and Nora's quiet weekend in the country turns hectic immediately, and when the possibilities there have been exhausted, the melée moves to the city. Police Lieutenant Guild (Nat Pendleton), whom you will remember from the original "Thin Man" film, is back, though he has left his hard-boiled persona behind. He's bit of a bumbling fool now. The entire police investigation is played for laughs and made out to be ridiculously incompetent. It's funny, but it's not Dashiell Hammett's style.

Format:VHS Tape
Although MGM continued to soften the characters of Nick and Norah Charles from the sharp-edged original (in this particular film the couple has a baby and Nora is described as no longer drinking), Powell and Loy retain their sparkle as a team and the script offers plenty of opportunity for them to shine.
This particular film concerns Norah's financial manager, well played by C. Aubrey Smith at his most crusty, who is being threatened by a former business associate--and no sooner is Nick on the case than murder results. As in the previous "Thin Man" films, ANOTHER THIN MAN sports a remarkable cast: in addition to C. Aubrey Smith, there are extremely enjoyable performances from Marjorie Main, Ruth Hussey, Muriel Hutchison, Sheldon Leonard, and Abner Biberman. Every one is sure to enjoy the fun, particularly when Nora takes a hand by investigating a nightclub and both Nick and Nora meet Marjorie Main's "Mrs. Dolley." Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sparkling Long Island Weekend May 25, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The Thin Man series spanned years and each production was charming and witty fun for the moviegoing public. Dashiell Hammet's Nick and Nora were perfectly portrayed by William Powell and Myrna Loy, and this third entry, like the others, is a breezy and fun comedy mystery done with style, class and top drawer production values from MGM at it's zenith.

In this one, little Nicky Jr. is a year old and proud parents Nick and Nora are having a ball. Nick is trying to get out of going to Long Island because Colonel McFay (C. Aubrey Smith) only wants him to go over financial reports and other mundane matters that might interfere with Nick's drinking. But there is also a threat on the Colonel's life and Nora wants a quiet weekend in the country, so off they go. It turns out anything but quiet, of course, and Nick has to solve another murder.

A sharp and clever script with snappy dialog keep this one moving along nicely. Pretty Virginia Grey is the Colonel's daughter Lois and Ruth Hussey plays little Nicky's nurse, Dorothy. Lois wants to marry Dudley Horn (Patrick Knowles), much to the chagrin of the Colonel and his secratery, Freddie (Tom Neal), who is in love with the lovely Lois as well. It seems some of the Colonel's business dealings have been just a little on the shady side since the death of Nora's father, his business partner. Phil Church (Sheldon Leonard) may have been on the wrong end of one of these shady deals and with all this going on you can guess what happens next.

The interplay between Nick and Nora about their quiet little weekend is a lot of fun. A body in the road and a pool house fire get things moving quickly in this light and breezy entry in the series. Nat Pendelton is along as Lt.
