United States 1947 86 mins.

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.
