Description
This TCM Greatest Classic Films Set includes these four great films:

The Thin Man
The TCM Greatest Classic Films: Thin Man Volume 1 DVD is the start of it all! Nick and Nora Charles invite you to bring your own alibi to Dashiell Hammett's jaunty whodunit about a missing inventor that made William Powell and Myrna Loy the champagne elite of sleuthing.

After The Thin Man
New Year's Eve and a new mystery surrounding the philandering husband of Nora's cousin. Round up the unusual suspects, including James Stewart in an early screen role.

Another Thin Man
And baby makes three. On this video, meet Nick Jr. and join the birthday bash thrown by some of da boys in this breezy outing that takes the Charleses to the Long Island estate of an industrialist who turns out to be a murder target.

Shadow Of The Thin Man
Off to the races! The racetrack murder of a jockey and dinner at Mario's Grotto (try the sea bass!) highlight the fourth screen outing for William Powell and Myrna Loy as Nick and Nora Charles.

            These old movies are so much fun to watch. Asta the Dog is just a hoot. The only thing that really didn't go over well for me was that Nick Charles is a lush. I know it's his character but it was a little overboard. Outside of that, the movies are fun and entertaining.

                                  Myra Loy is one of the most underrated actresses of her time. She could deliver all the straight lines without cracking her classy veneer. William Powell was a perfectly handsome, devoted hubby who loved invovling his old street wise cronies to solve the murders. Powell was a master at the "looking drunk" and taking prat falls. They created a powerfully funny and sophisticated team.

                                      Excellent movies. We've watched 3 out of the 4 so far and each one gets better. My husband and I both love murder mysteries, and these old gems are wonderfully remastered. It's hard to believe that the first one was made 70 years ago and we can watch such a clear picture today. I had never seen Myrna Loy or William Powell in movies before, but they really click on screen. Some of the characters are stereotyped compared to modern movies, (the gangsters all talk a certain way), but the films are very entertaining, with surprising twists in the story. We're looking to find the last 2 movies in the series now, since 6 Thin Man movies were made. It is so nice to watch movies without profanity.

                                            The first film "The Thin Man" is still one of the best films I have ever seen.
                                            Powell & Loy are the perfect pair and carry the film with so much ease from start to finish.
