As charming as its headliners are, The Thin Man is brought down to the merely solid level by its flimsy narrative.

What enchants, really, is the relationship between Nick and Nora as they live an eternal cocktail hour, bewailing hangovers that only another little drink will cure, in a marvellous blend of marital familiarity and constant courtship.

The Thin Man, produced way back in 1934, just isn't that funny any more.

Even after 70 years, this extraordinarily entertaining romantic comedy/mystery is still fresh, and holds up to repeated viewings mostly thanks to William Powell and Myrna Loy's sparkling chemistry.

Beautifully shallow, sophisticated and smart. The Thin Man is pure slapstick noir.

The Thin Man was one of the most popular films of 1934, inspired five sequels, and was nominated for four Oscars (best picture, actor, direction and screenplay). Yet it was made as an inexpensive B-picture.
