The last time that and William Powell were teamed up as amateur detectives Nora and Nick Charles was in this enjoyable little thriller. This time the murderer that they seek is travelling through the world of jazz music, so in between the funny one-liners and near-death experiences there’s lots of great instrumental music to keep your toes tapping. The situations have gotten stale by this point in the series, but the dialogue is still fresh and funny, and it seems that Powell and Loy never ran out of marvelous chemistry together on screen.
