Three years after the second Thin Man entry, MGM brought back the property by popular demand with Another Thin Man. As ever, William Powell and Myrna Loy star as sophisticated sleuths Nick and Nora Charles, with the added filip of 8-month-old Nick Charles Jr. At the invitation of munitions manufacturer Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith), the Charleses spend a weekend at MacFay's Long Island estate. The Colonel is certain that his shady ex-business associate Phil Church (Sheldon Leonard) plans to

We're still appreciative, but we found too many chestnuts in the dressing.

This 1939 release is still watchable, though the spirit is now sitcom.

The atmosphere and sets, along with stellar performances by the principals, can't offset a weak story.

One of string of above average Wiliam Powell-Myrna Loy crime-comedies...and a joy.

Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite couple continue to lightly spar and make those cross-cultural jabs, but the end result is decidedly tepid.

The solution seems more convoluted than necessary, and as usual the murderer breaks down and confesses in the end. Still, it's good to see Powell and Loy in action.

Lots of familiar faces are brought in to liven things up. But it's all rather diluted, as though the ice has melted in the dry martini.

Third entry in the series is nearly up to the second.

Audience Reviews for Another Thin Man

Although the Thin Man movies get more predictable as the series goes on, the third movie is still a good movie, it's very funny.

The third in the Thin Man series also comes up third in quality. Nick and Nora go out to Long Island to visit the manager of Nora's father's finances, because he's worried about a former employees threats. Former employee Phil Church (Sheldon Leonard) claims that if he dreams about a person 3 times, that person winds up dead. Sure enough, the old man winds up dead, and it's Church who is the prime suspect. Things only get more convoluted from here, as the detectives hunt down Church and his gang. If you've seen the previous two Thin Man movies, it's fairly easy to spot the murderer early on, as a formula seems to be developing. They also seem to be running out of gags to do with the dog, Asta. At one point, and for no apparent reason, the dog does a backwards flip while walking towards the stairs, in what appears to be cuteness for cuteness' sake. Speaking of cuteness for cuteness' sake, a baby has been added to Nick and Nora's life, although it plays a very minor role in the proceedings (just at the end). There's still some great dialogue here, though I find it odd when characters who appear to be good, are suddenly found out to be bad, and their manner of speaking changes from erudite to bowery in a matter of seconds. Very odd indeed, see. If youz mugs are in da mood fer a old-fashioned "who-done-it?", you'd best stick wit the foist two movies, see. But if youz arredy seen em, and ya needz yer fix o' flatfeets and gumheels, with hot petunias and dames wit heaters under their jalopies, i guess dis is bettah dan nuttin.

I was expecting this to really suck considering that sticking a kid into the mix of a series usually spells its doom. But fortunately Nickie jr. is treated more like an accessory than a character. The action gets brought back to New York and Shemp from the Three Stooges has a small part. It's a little shy of the second Thin Man but not by much. It shouldn't disappoint if you're on the fence..

Oh, how I love Powell and Loy; especially together. This is the fourth of the Thin Man series that I've seen, and so far, it was probably my least favorite. The formula is still there (mystery, comedy, and charm) and works quite well, but something felt off. According to Robert Osborne, this was William Powell's first movie in two years; as he had taken off for illness and the death of his beloved, Jean Harlow. Perhaps, he was off his game a little? It's still a delight to watch, as you can never go wrong with Loy and Powell.
