In some regards, this "Thin Man" movie is my favorite of the six movies. I'm so happy to read that it's a pristine BD presentation and look forward to watching my preorder. Thank you for your fine review.
We think alike. Though each of them have their merits, this one has always ranked at or near the top of the heap for me. The first time I saw it, I was completely baffled by the murderer's identity, but once Nick revealed it, it seemed as simple as simple could be, and I was ashamed I hadn't solved it myself.

IMO, this movie has the best cast of actors than any of the six movies which is why I like it so much.

I ordered the last few Warner Archives from Bullmoose. Both Broadway Melody of 1940 and Annie Get Your Gun arrived the Saturday before Release day (AGYG this morning).

Hopefully next Saturday I can sit down with Another Thin Man.

Very nice review. But the actor's name is C. Aubrey Smith not C. Audrey Smith and "Once couldn’t wish a minute of the transfer any better" needs some attention.

Dear lord. I know that and it's purely a typographical error. I'll correct it now.

I, too, have suffered from tigergiraffical errors; which usually happened when writing to my friend the zoologist.:D

A Groucho line if ever there was one.
