  • Another Thin Man 1939

    ★★★★½ Watched 29 Sep, 2014

    Ah, another trip to the land of Nick and Nora Charles as portrayed by William Powell and Myrna Loy. What, at this point, can one say about this series but to mention the consistent high quality and some of the best onscreen chemistry ever seen?

    Nick & Nora (and their baby, Nicky Jr.) to Long Island to see Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith), who wants to enlist Nick to find out more about threats to his life he is getting. Nick…

    A cool little noir featuring a man on death row, big time dough at stake, gangsters at odds, a corrupt doctor, and the dame who two times them all make for a more than interesting seventy-five minutes.

    None of the people involved rung any real bells with me - I am only very superficially knowledgable in the genre - but I read some very positive things about this film and the…
