Empire Magazine

Rating: 4/4 -- The Thin Man was one of the most popular films of 1934, inspired five sequels, and was nominated for four Oscars (best picture, actor, direction and screenplay). Yet it was made as an inexpensive B-picture. Full Review

[Hammett's] book has been adapted to the screen with an intelligent respect for the original spirit and tempo. The dialogue is bright and sophisticated; and Miss Loy and William Powell carry the thing off with a light touch and a great deal of gaiety. Full Review

Product Description:

THE THIN MAN is the first installment in one of the most successful detective serials in film history, based on the 1932 novel by Dashiell Hammett about stylish sleuthing spouses Nick (William Powell) and Nora Charles (Myrna Loy). Powell and Loy's quick-witted repartee set a Hollywood tradition in their crackling debut as they investigate the disappearance of a wealthy inventor. A blockbuster hit in 1934, THE THIN MAN's convoluted mystery plot moves at a rapid-fire pace that will delight modern viewers. Director W.S. Van Dyke's fast but loose methods helped stars Powell and Loy create great verisimilitude in their marital relationship in spite of the highly stylized script. Even the couple's pet dog, Asta, brings home a finely tuned performance, and the supporting roles are filled with a crew of comical characters. THE THIN MAN must not be missed by fans of the detective genre.

Plot Synopsis:

Nick and Nora Charles are introduced to Hollywood in the first of several sparkling films. Academy Award Nominations: 4, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor--William Powell and Best Adapted Screenplay.
