Audience Reviews for Song of the Thin Man

  • Sep 05, 2010
    I like the Thin Man series, but this one is more average than usual, and by now you know how Powell will solve the mystery anyway.

    A little bit better than the previous "The Thin Man Goes Home", "The Song of the Thin Man" centers around a group of jive-talking, hepcat jazz musicians (and thankfully, this time there's less of the dog). The focus is more on the storyline than the last movie, and with less of a focus on comedy, but it's still awfully convoluted. An alcoholic musician is given the sack by the bandleader who turns up dead shortly thereafter. Said bandleader also had a heavy gambling debt and believed his life was in danger from the loan sharks. Nick and Nora are brought in to solve the case, and the usual tom-foolery ensues. While the film has its share of decent gags (personally, I found the swing band very amusing), it's still along way distant from the original film.

    this one sort of plays out like Nick & Nora are on loan to some other film. if you watch it with that in mind (or with the fact that this is the only post-WWII Thin Man film) then you can find plenty here to enjoy. Powell & Loy look like they're having as much fun as ever, even if the quality of the end result isn't the greatest.

    The Batman and Robin of the Thin Man series. Powell and Loy kind of look like they don't want to be there, Nicky jr's (played by Dean Stockwell) scenes ensure the shark gets jumped and the whole jazz band gimmick spell doom for Nick and Nora. The spanking scene was really stupid and the story has none of the charm of the previous Thin Man movies--not to mention an ending that felt a bit rushed. Still, Song of the Thin Man isn't all bad--it's got a few funny lines and film noir vixens Gloria Grahame and Marie Windsor make appearances. If you've seen all the other Thin Man movies you may as well finish the series off, but be advised--Song of the Thin Man serves as proof that the series went on too long.
