The words breezy and charming aren’t typically used to describe murder-mystery movies, but then again, The Thin Man (1934) isn’t your typical murder mystery. Trading on the effervescent chemistry of its stars William Powell and Myrna Loy, this soft-boiled Dashiell Hammett adaptation tells the story of Nick (Powell) and Nora Charles (Loy), a former detective and his wealthy socialite wife, who team up to investigate the mystery of a missing inventor. Filled with amusing banter, eccentric characters, and plain old detective work, The Thin Man established one of Hollywood’s iconic screen couples, and remains one of the finest joys of early sound pictures.
