After the Thin Man
Directed by W. S. Van Dyke • 1936 • United States
Starring William Powell, Myrna Loy, James Stewart
William Powell and Myrna Loy reunite with the writers and director of THE THIN MAN in the giddy second film about the urbane team of husband-and-wife sleuths Nick and Nora Charles. It’s New Year’s Eve, the Charleses have returned to the West Coast, and the philandering hubby of Nora’s cousin has gone missing. Now, between witty banter and martinis, Nick and Nora must solve another puzzling mystery. Rising star James Stewart leads a tip-top supporting cast in one of his earliest film appearances.
