The last of the six classic Thin Man films pairs William Powell as Nick Charles—the nattiest ex-cop you’ll ever meet—and the inimitable Myrna Loy as Nora, his wry urbane socialite wife. The story begins with a murder on a yacht and leads the crime-fighting couple through Manhattan jazz clubs offering them plenty of cocktails and hep-cat lingo along the way. Sure, a few people get murdered, but it’s all so very stylish and civilized.

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
