Editorial Reviews

At a charity gambling benefit aboard the S.S. Fortune, the tables are hot, the jazz is hotter and before you know it, a bandleader's body is growing cold. They're playing your song, Nick and Nora Charles! William Powell and Myrna Loy return as the married sleuths, rousting suspects out of bed for 4 AM interrogations while trying to fathom the bebop argot of '40s jazz jive. Speaking of their renowned screen chemistry, Loy once said: "It wasn't a conscious thing. If you heard us talking in a room, you'd hear the same thing. He'd tease me, and there was a sort of blending which seemed to please people." Decades later, people are still pleased. The melody of Song of the Thin Man and the entire beloved series lingers on.

I should have listed this as a spoiler but anyone familiar the THIN MAN movies will know how the film ends.

Some people complain that this is a weak finale to the MGM Thin Man series. It's true that some of the edginess and zest of the early entries in the series is missing, but even second string Nick and Nora is fun to watch. Nick and Nora have settled into a more conservative, mid-life parenting mode. Their son, Nick, Jr., is a chip off the old block. Asta is still around, but plays second fiddle to Nick, Jr. A society party on a gambling ship leads to murder. A bonus of this film is an emphasis on jazz music (circa. 1947). The hep cats, rootie-toots, and hot jive are a hilarious contrast to Nick and Nora's sophisticated demeanor. The Charles's bewildered reaction to the "Greetings, gate! Let's coagulate!" slang is priceless. Sharp humor within the context of a happy marriage is a familiar trademark of the Thin Man series. Nick and Nora have fun with their relationship. Nick remains the sharp detective, albeit retired. Nora is his intellectual and emotional equal. Nora's chutzpah keeps her in the middle of Nick's cases with comic effect. This movie will satisfy fans of the series, and anyone who enjoys mystery flavored with humor. Don't spoil your enjoyment of this movie by searching for nuances. Just dig that crazy jive, and enjoy this blast from the past. ;-)

I can't say enough about the Thin Man series, and how much I loved this last movie. I even stole some of the moves from the big dance scene and use them when I go out dancing! Don't even think about letting this one get away from your Loy/Powell collection. Also, even though not mentioned in the credits, this movie had a major role that was played by a young Keenon Wynn.

Starting with "The Thin Man," William Powell and Myrna Loy were Nick and Nora Charles, Dashiell Hammett's greatest creation. This series stood apart from others in that it was a class "A" production all the way, MGM giving these wildly popular films their best contract players and their finest behind the scenes people to create something unparalleled in American film history.

The original "The Thin Man" was a masterpiece of light and witty comedy mystery that has never been equaled. For that reason it is unfair to compare the five films that followed with the first one, and once that is set aside, each of the five was charming, witty and classy, the perfect way to solve a mystery and be entertained at the same time. This was the last entry and was just teriffic, as "The Thin Man" went out in style.

Manhattan meets the hip jazz scene in this one as Nick and Nora are involved in solving another delicious murder, with nice touches from Nicky Jr. and, of course, their dog Asta. It begins when Nick and Nora have a night out on the gambling ship "S. S. Fortune."

The film opens with a young and stunningly beautiful Gloria Grahame singing "Your Not That Easy to Forget" and only gets better. As Nick and Nora rub shoulders with the elite and a few of Nicky's old pals a chain of events leads to murder, discovered the next morning when the chief suspect stops by with his fiance to ask for Nick's help. Nick turns him over to the cops for his own safety when he is shot at but the deal is sealed when the bullet hits a bottle Nick had been saving for a special occasion, and as he puts it, "An old friend of mine went completely to pieces."

There are no shortage of suspects as Nick and Nora start nosing around, aided by a young Keenan Wynn as one of the hip band members.

In SONG OF THE THIN MAN Nick and Nora board a gambling ship where a band leader is murdered. Nick is drinking again after being forced to abstain from alcohol during his last case in THE THIN MAN GOES HOME. Nick and Nora are accompanied by Nick, Jr. who is played by a young Dean Stockwell. Keenan Wynn has an important role as a member of the band. Edward Buzzer is the director.
The film marked the sixth and final entry in the THIN MAN Series. William Powell and Myrna Loy held the starring roles of Nick and Nora Charles in all of the movies. The sixth film was definitely one of the weakest in many respects except for the atmosphere which was quite upbeat.

Format: VHS Tape
While the previous THE THIN MAN GOES HOME was hampered by a very weak script, THE SONG OF THE THIN MAN actually has a decent script but lacks the energy and sparkle of the first four films in the series. Even William Powell and Myrna Loy seem a bit tired of the whole thing, and this film finds their legendary chemistry reduced to the occasional twinkle.
The script is entertaining enough, concerning the murder of a band leader with ties to casino gamblers, and the supporting cast has a number of fine performances by the likes of Gloria Grahame, Jayne Meadows, and Keenan Wynn. Most viewers will find it all reasonably entertaining, but the bloom is gone; newcomers to the 'Thin Man' series would do better to select one of the first four films in the series.

Some of the other Thin Man movies are better but this title is still worth owning and still better then the garbage hollywood puts out now a days. Filled with twist and turns this is a classic who dunnit until the shocking end. As ususal, the thin man has some funny moments as well. in one sceene william powell doesnt want to spank his son, every time he attempts to he remembers fond family memories until one time he finally remembers his son laughing at him when he was riding a bike and fell, then he starts spanking but after running to mommy she finds the son stuffed protection into his pants and didnt feel a thing. Another cute sceene has the family dog sneaking into bed with the kid in a unique under the covers way. When a stray bullet hits and breaks a bottle of powells booze, a neighbor asking if everyone is OK is told by powel that an old friend of his went to peices (referring to the booze)I could picture bogart having that line in one of his films. The thin man is good fun and mystery for the whole family with the usual sarcastic but polite digs thrown back and forth between powell and his co-star in a bogart bacall kind of way.
