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.

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.

Nick and Nora Charles are one of the screen's great couples.
