After the Thin Man

The most elegant title for a sequel in film history belongs, happily, to one of the most elegant sequels (1934). Two years after The Thin Man, Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy) have moved to San Francisco, Asta in tow. The mystery elements amount to much less than Powell and Loy's effervescent interplay as the movies' most happily married couple. With James Stewart, Elissa Landi, and Joseph Calleia; W.S. Van Dyke directed.
