Movie Review: The Thin Man (1934)


In 2019 I found some old Word documents with movie reviews I wrote back before I had a blog. I’m posting each review backdated to the day I wrote it.

Title: The Thin Man
Release Date: May 25, 1934
Director: W. S. Van Dyke
Production Company: Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
Summary/Review:

This was a fun movie at the Brattle with Susan, Lisa, Camille, and Craig.  It was actually a bit difficult to keep track of all the characters at first, but since there really isn’t a story, one can just sit back and enjoy the chemistry of William Powell and Myrna Loy.  Particularly strong in quotable dialogue and scenes of alcoholic escapades.  We just had to go out for drinks afterwards.
