Pretty much the movie, word for word. Original cast!


(5 stars)

This is a radio adaptation of the movie, After the Thin Man. The mystery gets a bit convoluted, but maybe I just didn't pay enough attention. Listening to Powell and Myrna Loy playing Nick and Nora Charles, charming and freewheeling millionaire detectives, is enough to distract anybody! Since I first saw this movie, I decided that I wouldn't get married until I met someone with whom I could have a relationship like this. The two characters are playful, intelligent and very much in love. The two actors have great chemistry, and the quick, witty dialog is very funny. There are four or five of the Thin Man films. I highly recommend them all, in whatever format you can find them.
