William Powell and Myrna Loy in The Thin Man.

The detective thriller had a highly successful kick into popularity for paying audiences of the Depression with this witty comedy/mystery that introduced the world to the team of Nick and Nora Charles. William Powell and would be paired together in many more films after this (including the many Thin Man sequels), but were never better than when they played the detective duo.  The Charleses are a society couple with a nosy dog who get to the bottom of a murder case when asks them to help out her suspect father by convincing them that she is the guilty one. The couple get involved for the fun of it, and you yourself will have a great time watching them do it.
