Police are investigating yet another big-city homicide when a racehorse jockey is found shot in the head in his locker room shower. They don’t need to seek the help of Nick and Nora Charles since the Charleses keep falling into the heap by encountering a matter of police business every time they go out. A victim of circumstance, Nick (William Powell) has no choice but to help solve the mystery. This is one of the better sequels to the wonderful Thin Man franchise, with great dialogue and supporting characters, plus a marvelous continuation of the terrific humour and sexy chemistry between the two leads. What’s better this time around is that ‘s Nora is more involved and even gets to be an action hero in the climax.
