22 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Barry E. Boothman on Sept. 18 2005
Format: DVD
Mystery writer Dashiell Hammett's most enduring sleuths, Nick and Nora Charles,were fictionalized versions of Hammett and his partner, Lillian Hellman. MGM secured the screen rights to the The Thin Man, a 1934 novel that jumped to the top of bestseller lists. William Powell and Myrna Loy were drafted to play Nick and Nora, with director W. S. ("One Shot Woody") Van Dyke asked to shoot the movie within a few weeks. The rest, as the saying goes, is history: a six film series that has delighted audiences for decades. Loy, who had usually been miscast (including a role as the daughter of Fu Manchu), benefited from the role and became one of the best actresses of Hollywood's golden age. Witty, urbane, and inordinately fond of alcohol, the Charleses romped life and murders. Much of the fun came from the sharp cynical banter between the couple, along with an incongrous matching of social positions and settings. Powell's character was a poor but effective detective suddenly thrust into 'society' by marrying heiress Nora. She and other members of the upper crust must deal with Nick's former associates: gangsters, scoundrels, pickpockets, and humorous ne'er-do-wells who Nick often had sent up the river. Some of the funniest moments in the series occurred when Nora tries to investigate members of the underworld or visits dance halls and pool parlours. The series usually benefited from a strong supporting cast and marked the debut of many film and television actors from Maureen O'Sullivan to Sheldon Leonard. Invariably the films close with all the suspects in a room and Nick revealing the killer. The first film, the best, deals with the mystery of a missing inventor but at the centre are the antics of the often inebriated Charleses.Read more ›

Format: DVD
Rarely has so little spawned so many good sequels. In this case, "little" is Dashiell Hammett's classic detective novel "The Thin Man," a gritty detective story about a pair of married society sleuths, the legendary Nick and Nora Charles. It's prettier, brighter and wittier than Hammett's novel, but even the least of these mysteries is fun.

"The Thin Man" was the sparkling film that started it all. While shaking a martini to the waltz, Nick Charles investigates the disappearance of an old client, and the murder of his secretary-lover, who was stealing from him. It seems like an easy case, but Nick isn't convinced. Ex-wives, anguished daughters, long-suffering cops and creepy stool pigeons all show up for a dinnertime revelation...

"After the Thin Man" returns Nick and Nora to San Francisco. They find that Nora's cousin Selma (Elissa Landi) has been abandoned by her husband (Jimmy Stewart) for a sexy nightclub entertainer, and that he's also blackmailing her ex-boyfriend. Soon he turns up dead, and it's up to Nick and Nora to clear Selma's name....

"Another Thin Man" is an adaptation of another Hammett short story, and introduces us to Baby Charles. The new parents arrive in Long Island to visit an old friend of the family, who claims that a former business partner is trying to kill him. Of course, he dies. Disappearing bodies, international suspects, and lots of martinis are par for the course...

"Shadow of the Thin Man" takes the Charles family to the racetrack, where a jockey is unexpectedly killed. Nick doesn't want to be torn away from his vices, but he reluctantly gets involved when the bodies start to pile up. Gambling syndicates, lethal sports and milk-drinking are all tied up in this.

I bought this set for my Mother who is 82. My wife and I enjoyed the movies ourselves, a very funny take on society high and low that is as accessible today as when
they were filmed. So when my mother mentioned she is not watching much TV as the current trend is too raw and frankly distressing for her tastes, I thought of this
series. Try them you are guaranteed a laugh or two. ;-) Cheers!

A delightful DVD package with two great stars, who both had extremely successful careers. I absolutely love getting lost in these movies, with their wonderful characters, Nick Nora and of course Asta. If you love the Thin Man series, these are well worth buying!

This set includes all of the Thin Man movies, plus shorts and cartoons, so you can make an old-style cinema experience of your viewing, and an extra disk with features on William Powell and Myrna Loy. If you love the Thin Man movies, and want to watch them all again, or show them to your friends and family, you really can't go wrong with this set.
