This movie is a hilarious depiction of the perfect marriage and what can happen when you take your loyal pooch and spouse on a vacation to your former hometown for the holidays. One of the best classic movies today, this groundbreaking film was shot in just two weeks by well-known classic film director,
W.S."One-take Woody"Van Dyke. This is a mystery-romance-comedy
about former detective, Nick Charles, his wife, Nora, and their loyal, but cowardly dog, Asta. Somewhere along the way they meet up with Nick's former client's daughter, Dorothy, who bears the news that her father has disappeared. When the murder of Clyde Wynant's(Dorothy's father)former secretary is comitted in the Big Apple, the fact that her father has disappeared arouses the polices' suspicions. Then, when two more murders occur, reluctantly, but inevitably, Nick takes the case and cracks the labyrinth of confusion and all is well. This
is a wonderful movie and perhaps one of my favorites of all time, so come and join Nick and Nora for a drink(or two) and you'll be on the edge of your chair.
