Three years after the second Thin Man entry, MGM brought back the property by popular demand with Another Thin Man. As ever, William Powell and Myrna Loy star as sophisticated sleuths Nick and Nora Charles, with the added filip of 8-month-old Nick Charles Jr. At the invitation of munitions manufacturer Colonel MacFay (C. Aubrey Smith), the Charleses spend a weekend at MacFay's Long Island estate. The Colonel is certain that his shady ex-business associate Phil Church (Sheldon Leonard) plans to do him harm, a prognostication that apparently comes true when murder rears its ugly head. Though he's promised to cut down on his drinking (after all, he's a daddy now), Nick spends an inordinate amount of time sorting out the clues and identifying the actual murderer-who, of course, is the least likely suspect (and in fact is played by an actor who seldom if ever harmed a fly in any other film). Adding to the merry mayhem is the Charleses' efforts to find a good baby-sitter, resulting in an onslaught of "help"-and additional babies!—courtesy of Nick's old Underworld cronies.

Fresh: We're still appreciative, but we found too many chestnuts in the dressing.
Rotten: This 1939 release is still watchable, though the spirit is now sitcom.
What About The Other Three
The fact that "The Thin Man" series in on iTunes is the best thing I've seen all year. That being said I would really like to see the the last three installments of the series. They remind me of I was growing up. Please oh great ones at iTunes please make these movies available that would make my day.
this is a great movie but.....
iTunes....you need to check the Plot/Summary here. This isn't about the movie "Another Thin Man". This is about some animal movie?? That being said, Another Thin Man is yet another GREAT movie! You'll enjoy it for sure!
Complete the series...
