Just finished watching this movie, and I can't get enough William Powell! The Thin Man movies are an interesting hybrid of comedy and the hardboiled detective drama, and I'm trying to think if there are any other films out there that combined these two genres as effectively. The comedy aspects and the hardboiled stuff are balanced perfectly so that neither waters down the other, and yet both co-exist in the film without it feeling like you're watching two different movies.

Plus, Nicky's drunk all the time, so he would fit right in here at the Flying Inn!
