Rating: 4/5 -- One of string of above average Wiliam Powell-Myrna Loy crime-comedies...and a joy.
Rating: 3/5 -- We're still appreciative, but we found too many chestnuts in the dressing. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 4/5 -- Third entry in the series is nearly up to the second.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
Rating: 7/10 -- The solution seems more convoluted than necessary, and as usual the murderer breaks down and confesses in the end. Still, it's good to see Powell and Loy in action. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Fans of the series will enjoy seeing their favorite couple continue to lightly spar and make those cross-cultural jabs, but the end result is decidedly tepid.
Rating: B- -- Overwritten. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
This 1939 release is still watchable, though the spirit is now sitcom. Full Review
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.
