Description by OLDIES.com:
Dum-Dum, Wacky, Creepy, Fingers: They're just a few of the hoodlums in the world of amateur sleuths and professional bon vivants Nick and Nora Charles. And now there's a new hood: parenthood.
A birthday - make that boithday - party that some of da boys hold for infant Nick Jr. is part of the fun in this third film in the witty series. The case begins when the Charles family arrives for a weekend with a Long Island industrialist who fears someone wants to kill him. Sure enough, his fears come true. Nick (William Powell) is among the suspects. Asta scrams with what may be the murder weapon. And Nora (Myrna Loy) has her own ideas about the case and sneaks off to a nightclub to ferret out a clue. "Madam, how long have you been leading this double life?" Nick asks. "Just since we've been married," she replies.
Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy), the wisecracking, hard-drinking upper-crust crime-solving duo, set off to Long Island for a relaxing vacation. But upon arrival husband and wife are summarily summoned to the home of Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith), who fears that his life is in jeopardy because he has received a death threat from a former employee. MacFay turns out to be correct--someone murders him that very night. One corpse becomes two and then three as Nick and Nora set out to solve a high-society mystery, and their adventure-filled investigation leads them to the lowlife world of gangsters and seedy characters. Can Nick, Nora, faithful dog Asta, and baby Nicky Jr. survive long enough to solve the murders' Few film series provide the same entertainment value over the course of several sequels, but this third entry in the popular Thin Man series is up to snuff in both humor value and suspense.
Based on Dashiell Hammett's novel about the husband-and-wife detective team of Nick and Nora Charles, this film finds them investigating a series of murders within New York City's high society.
