One of those fast, post-Thin-Man murder mysteries which you will have to see twice to unravel properly. Even at that I'm not sure you could unravel it; or that it is worth seeing twice. Full Review

Description by OLDIES.com:

William Powell is a debonair lawyer suspected in the murder of a nosy newspaper columnist. Aided by classy, sassy, marriage-minded Ginger Rogers, he untangles the Manhattan maze of double-crosses, disguises and misdirections without disarranging his dinner jacket -- or bruising his gin. Martinis all around if you solve the mystery first!

Product Description:

This barely-disguised but effective riff on THE THIN MAN (1934) stars that film's lead, William Powell, opposite Ginger Rogers instead of Myrna Loy. Clay Dalzell (Powell) is a suave attorney fonder of solving crimes than trying cases. His elegant girlfriend, Donna (Rogers) hopes that Clay will settle down and marry her. A friend, Tim Winthrop (Leslie Fenton), approaches Clay with a mystery that the amateur sleuth can't resist. Tim's girlfriend Alice disappeared a year ago. During the performance of a Broadway play, Tim spots Alice onstage, but she disappears again. Clay takes the case and sets up a meeting with a gossip columnist who seems to have the answers, but the reporter is murdered and Clay is suspected of the crime. As Clay puts together the pieces, he comes up with several suspects, including the play's producer, a couple seeking to prove a friend's innocence in a capital crime, and the gangster Jim Kinland (Paul Kelly).
