After the Thin Man (1936)

After the Thin Man (1936)

Director: WS Van Dyke
Starring: William Powell, Myrna Loy, James Stewart

Nick and Nora move back to San Francisco, where Nora's cousin is implicated in the murder of her philandering husband.

The adventures of Nick and Nora Charles continue in this solid sequel. While not quite as good as the first film, it's still a respectable follow-up with William Powell and Myrna Loy's chemistry as strong as ever. There's a fairly interesting pileup of suspects in the central murder case and while you can probably read some of the twists, there's bound to still be a surprise or two for you. Jimmy Stewart is pretty good in this, particularly in the third act. It's definitely worth giving a watch.
