Synopsis

Nick and Nora Charles are asked by Phil Brant and Janet Thayar, who have just eloped, to help them after band leader Tommy Drake is killed at a society dance which Nick and Nora also attended. The police are looking to arrest Brant for the murder and while he claims he's innocent, Nick isn't too keen on having him in the house and turns him over to the police. As they look into the case, Nick and Nora learn that Drake wasn't very well liked and there are actually several people who benefited from his death. Drake owed money to loan shark Al Amboy, and Janet's father disliked Brant and may have set him up. Drake's girlfriend may have been having a fling with clarinetist Buddy Hollis, and he and Drake had a fist fight on stage during the festivities. Nick arranges for another party on the same boat where Nora notices something quite peculiar about one of the guest's jewelry. —garykmcd.

    several notches below the original

    While I enjoyed this final THIN MAN movie, I've gotta admit that it was far less enjoyable than the first few entries in this series. Maybe the actors were getting tired or the writers had writer's block--but the movie just lacked the most important factor for a THIN MAN movie--FUN! Yes, some of the wonderful banter between Nick and Nora was present (particularly when Nora talks "jive"), but only here and there--not nearly as often or as hilarious as in previous films. And, unfortunately, the plot also is pretty convoluted (though I must admit that plot is NOT the primary reason people watched the films--it was the characters). Also, their son, played by Dean Stockwell, was never developed as a character and, Frankly, Nick and Nora seemed like TERRIBLE parents. Oh well, despite all these complaints, it still is a pretty good film--slightly better than average but that's really about all.

    Doesn't sing enough

    Enjoyed to loved the previous films in 'The Thin Man' series, the best 3 being 'After the Thin Man', 'The Thin Man Goes Home' and of course the original. The films in between 'Another Thin Man' and 'Shadow of the Thin Man' were also good. So seeing the series' final film 'Song of the Thin Man' was never in doubt, always see all the films/episodes in a series once watching one or two.While still watchable, 'Song of the Thin Man' disappointed somewhat and do have to agree with the general consensus that it is the weakest of the series. It's a tricky one to rate and review, due to being so mixed on it with it having as many problems as it did great things. Saw it mostly, like the previous films, for William Powell, Myrna Loy and their classic partnership and was not let down. Also saw it, again like the other films in the series, for the mystery and the humour and was not as happy on that front.Lets start with 'Song of the Thin Man's' problems. Have to agree with those that felt that it tried too hard to be hip, including and actually especially the jazz music, and in doing so managed to date the film with for example instrumentation that managed to not actually be of the time and out of date then (a big problem as it featured heavily here). And to me the music didn't fit what was going on, the theme song is quite nice though. Would have liked the humour to have been more consistent, as well as perhaps more of it. There are parts that are very funny and witty, if not sparkling as much as in the previous five films, but others felt forced.The mystery is interesting and entertains enough, but is on the unremarkable and slight side. More suspense wouldn't have gone amiss, as well as some things being less obvious and the energy levels being more consistent, down to the slightness and scenes that felt there for padding reasons. The denouement felt rushed and some of the supporting cast could have had much more to do.However, once again the photography has elegance and mood, the sets are done with taste and the costumes and fashions epitomise glamour (Loy looks fabulous). There is evidence of wit and sophistication in the script and there are funny, if never exactly hilarious, moments. The story is problematically handled here, yet it is still diverting, there is evidence of energy and enough parts keep one guessing, it was also for me one of the easier to follow stories of the series.Despite lacking the freshness of their previous outings, William Powell and Myrna Loy are always worth watching and they are more than so here. Powell is charming and suave and Loy again personifies glamour and is equally charming. Their chemistry, so easy-going and magnetic, was a vital part of the film's success, and it does help make 'Song of the Thin Man' a watchable film rather than a lacklustre one. Asta is cute and hilarious and Keenan Wynn is great fun.Overall, worth a look but somewhat disappointing. Doesn't sing enough. 5/10

    Farewell To The Thin Man

    William Powell was 55 and Myrna Loy 42 when Song of the Thin Man came out to box office that was not as good as the previous five entries. MGM thought they were getting too old for the roles and they and the stars called a halt to this most acclaimed of film series. I think they carried their parts off well myself.I think the problem was that this last one was too violent. Myrna Loy is almost killed by one of the suspects and the final unmasking of the villain was very violent, not at all in keeping with the usual lightheartedness that characterized the Thin Man series. I think the audience rejected it for that reason.A bandleader, Phillip Reed, is murdered on board a gambling ship and later on the band's vocalist Gloria Grahame is also killed. The usual array of suspects is on hand for Bill Powell to sift through and expose.Song of the Thin Man has Dean Stockwell as their young son, Nick Charles, Jr. and Powell and Loy get a sidekick in the form of sideman saxophonist Keenan Wynn. If the series had kept going, Wynn might have become a regular.Though it's not as good as the five previous entries, Song of the Thin Man is good one for this series to go out on.
