Movie Info

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 do him harm, a prognostication that apparently comes true when murder rears its ugly head. Though he's promised to cut down on his drinking (after all, he's a daddy now), Nick spends an inordinate amount of time sorting out the clues and identifying the actual murderer-who, of course, is the least likely suspect (and in fact is played by an actor who seldom if ever harmed a fly in any other film). Adding to the merry mayhem is the Charleses' efforts to find a good baby-sitter, resulting in an onslaught of "help"-and additional babies!--courtesy of Nick's old Underworld cronies. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Another Thin Man

  • Nov 04, 2019
    Nick and Nora are back for their third go-round, this time with a baby in tow, working to solve the killing of their financial adviser. Many of the elements of the first two are repeated here: Nick's reluctance to take the case while Nora pushes him to do so, Asta's playfulness, Nick's friendship with people he's arrested and his semi-adversarial relationship with the local constabulary, as well as the final summation with all the suspects in one room. Missing are the continual glasses of alcoholic refreshment, replaced with cutesy billing and cooing with their new baby. The mystery is too convoluted to decipher, but that's never been the point of these films anyway. Call this thin-lite.

    The third installment in the series, and made after William Powell's bought with cancer and loss of Jean Harlow, 'Another Thin Man' doesn't miss a beat. Much is made of Powell and Myrna Loy's on-screen chemistry, and it's deserved. While figuring out whodunit, Powell is cool, calm, and bemused, and Loy is spunky and brave. They both have such a natural playfulness about them, and in addition to comic relief from their dog Asta, they have a one year old baby in this movie. I also absolutely loved the dancing we see in the 'West Indies Club' towards the end, by the (uncredited) René Rivero Guillen and Ramona Ajon (stage names René & Estela) - look for the clip on youtube, and you'll see what I mean, it's silky smooth and fantastic.

    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.

    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.
