Format: VHS Tape
The high-living Nick and Nora Charles stumble into murder at a San Francisco racetrack and are quickly led into an investigation of various gambling rackets in this fast paced and very witty forth installment of the famous "Thin Man" series. The powerful charm of William Powell and Myrna Loy as a screen team is undimmed by passing time, and the script gives them plenty of opportunity to shine.
Like all the "Thin Man" films, THE SHADOW OF THE THIN MAN offers a superior supporting cast including a very young Donna Reed--but the real standout here is Stella Adler, seldom seen on screen but a noted stage actress and famous acting coach. Adler's performance here is quite remarkable, at once sultry and disconcerting, and should not be overlooked.
Although two more films were to come in the series, THE SHADOW OF THE THIN MAN is really the last significant film in the series. Both fans and newcomers will enjoy it!

This time Nick and Nora (and Asta, of course) get themselves embroiled in the murder of a jockey--at the racetrack, no less! This along with helping out a reporter friend whose girlfriend's boss is involved in shady dealings.
But none of this really matters, because the main reason to watch these films has always been the wisecracking chemistry between William Powell and Myrna Loy. And with characters named Link, Whitey, and Rainbow Benny, how can you go wrong?
Plus, there's a bonus! At Nick, Jr.'s insistence, Nick actually drinks a glass of milk!

Was ever a detective's life -- to say nothing of his wife -- so sweet and stylish? Once again Mr. & Mrs. Detective, Nick and Nora Charles, find themselves in the middle of murder in this nicely paced, self-deprecating (Nora's hats), amuslingly performed film. William Powell and Myrna Loy deliver delightful performances with excellent supporting work coming from, among others, Lou Lubin (Rainbow Benny)and Stella Adler (Claire Porter). The latter stews and seethes and oozes so that you wish she had lots more to do in this film. Pretty Donna Reed sits and pouts. Dickie Hall as, Nick Jr., does a nice job with his cue cards. Of course there was never a pair like Nick and Nora Charles, at least not in the detective business. On the other hand, we are infinitely fortunate in the pairing of superb light comedian, William Powell, and a charming and intelligent Myrna Loy. Oh, to be able to go back to a time that never was.

"You know that jockey, Gomez," says Lieutenant Abrams (Sam Levene) to Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy) as the two arrive at the racetrack for a little betting, "the one who was caught throwing the fourth race yesterday? He was shot." "My," says Nora, "they're strict at this track." And we're off on the fourth of the Nick and Nora Charles Thin Man series. The mystery isn't bad. The Powell-Loy chemistry is just as fine as always, and the characters...well, Nick remains the suave, gentleman private detective, fond of martinis and double-breasted suits, clever at putting puzzles together, and a man who seems to know everyone from distinguished officials to Rainbow Benny, a racetrack tout. Nora, his wealthy, socialite wife, remains most of the time a skeptical, affectionate, funny helpmate who can match her husband's martini intake whenever she chooses. However, slowly the series is turning Nora into a more conventional wife and mother. In Shadow of the Thin Man, the writers have Nora sometimes just being a ditzy, adoring wife. Myrna Loy makes it work, but some of Nora's smartness and wit have been dumbed down.

Nick agrees to look into the death of the jockey, but then another shooting takes place, this time of Whitey Barrow, a corrupt reporter who is in cahoots with a ring of racketeers who are making a fortune on racetrack gambling. When the dignified Major Jason Scully, hired by the track commission to clean up the situation, and Paul Clark, a young, crusading reporter, visit Nick and try to enlist his services, he turns them down. He's got too much on his hands already with Nora and their three-year-old son, Nick, Jr. That second murder makes him change his mind. Before long he's up to his waist in suspects.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert S. Clay Jr. on January 13, 2003
Format: VHS Tape
Nick and Nora (William Powell and Myrna Loy) investigate after their friend, Paul Clark (Barry Nelson), is framed for murder. The familiar things that make the Thin Man series easy to like are present in this movie. Nick and Nora continue their witty and sophisticated repartee, having fun with their marriage. A running joke in the series is Nora's amused reaction to Nick's blue-collar background. Wherever they go, Nick meets old friends and associates among the cops, bookies, gamblers, and ex-cons. Nora's chutzpah keeps pace with Nick's rapier wit. Their night out at the wrestling matches is a high-point of our little story. Note her introduction to "Spider" Webb. Asta occasionally steals the spotlight, especially in the restaurant segment as the mischievious pooch causes a knockdown brawl. The cutesy Nickie, Jr. detracts from the edginess of the adult story line. This is unfortunate but not important enough to emphasize. We usually fast-forward through Nick and Nick, Jr. on the merry-go-round. In the middle of all this classic comedy, a genuine murder mystery is in progress. Sam Levene repeats his role from "After the Thin Man" of Lt. Abrams. When Nick isn't sparring with Nora, he and Abrams square off. A very young Donna Reed plays Paul's girl, Molly. Mix it in a cocktail shaker, and we have good fun. ;-)
