Editorial Reviews

Who bumped off bibliophile Otto Brockler? Mystery turns a new page when bookdealers and amateur sleuths Joel and Garda Sloane (Melvyn Douglas, Florence Rice) sift through clues and suspects in Fast Company, the first of three brisk, urbane Sloane films. When a rare Shakespeare manuscript is stolen, the stage is set for murder in Fast and Loose, with Robert Montgomery and Rosalind Russell as the Sloanes. “The comedy is jauntily paced, and profits as much from its writing as it has from the deft light-comedy playing of Mr. Montgomery and Miss Russell” (Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times). Last, director Busby Berkeley turns his camera toward a bevy of bathing beauties and helms the clues and comedy of Fast and Furious. Franchot Tone and Ann Sothern play the Sloanes, rescuing a friend falsely accused of gunning down a shady beauty-pageant promoter. Three films, three sets of stars – all ideal fare for fans of The Thin Man series!

This DVD contains three movies with different actors playing the same characters. FAST COMPANY stars Melvyn Douglas and Florence Rice in a decent mystery with George Zucco as one of the bad guys. The rare book dealer world is the setting and makes for an interesting change. FAST AND LOOSE stars Robert Montgomery and Rosalind Russell and almost hits the gold standard of the Thin Man mystery. Montgomery and Russell do a good job of the expected banter back and forth. A rare manuscript is missing and a mansion full of suspects are running around in the middle of the night. This is the best of the three from this mystery buff's point of view and the reason why I am keeping this dvd. FAST AND FURIOUS stars Franchot Tone and Ann Sothern and throws a young Mary Beth Hughes in as a bathing beauty. Yes, I did say bathing beauty - we have left the world of books for a beauty contest in 'Seaside City'. Busby Berkley directs - good heavens, how the mighty are fallen. This is one of those movies where people are dying but you just can't take any of it seriously. And I haven't even mentioned the lions. If you are fan of 30's mysteries, you will probably enjoy owning this set.

This movie is a clear winner. It's too bad that more of this kind of show hasn't found it's way back into a genre where everything is real sans the need for computer enhanced goodies. The actors truly deserved to be paid for the price of admission. Can't help but really like this program, and while one might suggest this is but another Nick 'n Nora knockoff, it wasn't, at least from my perch on the Central Oregon Coast. Good actors, good writing, good plot, well, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and if it quacks like a duck, well, what do you think? It must be one.

If you like the older movies you'll enjoy this collection of 3 mystery movies. It has the same quality as "The Thin Man" series with light hearted comedy mixed in with a mystery. Well worth the money for 3 quality movies.

I received this as a gift and thoroughly enjoyed these three films which were all in the vein of the classic Thin Man series. These whodunits may lack to some extent the panache of Nick and Nora Charles which was cultivated through the series, these as stand alone films do not fail to entertain as they reflect good screen pairings.
With the exception of Fast and Loose, I had not seen the other films. If you like slick detective films from the '30's with decent production values, this set will not disappoint. They move quickly, are fun, and the casting works.

Bright dialogue, charming characters, good mysteries. I didn't realize I had never seen Fast Company before! Actors in the studio system were always working, so you get top stars in little B movies. These are comfortable and relaxing, can be enjoyed often.

All three of the movies in this collection are excellent. The casting was very well done, since all the couples had a good rapport. :) If you are a fan of light-hearted mystery films, these would be a good choice. My family and I really enjoyed the collection.

Not The Thin Man. But fun, querky. Odd that the actors playing the couple are different in each film. For 1930s film buffs.

Three husband and wife mysteries in the vein of The Thin Man, each with different couples. Light and sophisticated with top stars such as Melvyn Douglas, Rosalind Russell and Franchot Tone as the book dealer sleuths.
