William Powell in The Thin Man

The Thin Man

1934 NR

The first installment of one of the most successful detective serials in film history introduces stylish sleuthing spouses Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy), who -- between martinis -- investigate the disappearance of a wealthy inventor. Powell and Loy's quick-witted repartee in their crackling debut set a Hollywood tradition, but the film's rapid-fire mystery plot still delights modern viewers.
