the film flows less smoothly than its predecessors
It wouldn't be Hollywood if they didn't wring too much out of a good idea
Although the ending of Song of the Thin Man leaves a lot to be desired, including the compulsory confession, everything leading up to it works pretty well.
The great chemistry between Powell and Loy is still there and their charm carries things a long way.
One of series' best.
The last of a six-film series was running out of gas, but it's still good, clean fun.
Last, but not quite the least of the series.
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.
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.
