a strong back for a body of work.
liked the story ..pretty much. wished it was a little tighter in some parts. the ending seemed thrown together ..a bit. it was still strong for a third in a series of movies.
Need help with quote
- Laura K
Hi all! I'm hoping someone can help me with a quote from an old TCM b&w movie I saw. I'm fairly certain it was William Powell who spoke the line, but I could be wrong. It was definitely a movie with quick lines....like the Thin Man series, however, it could have been from something different. The line is: "He's so crooked he could hide behind (or under) a spiral staircase." Whoever spoke it was sitting in some public place across a table from another man, to whom he said it. I'm wondering about it because I found out that there's a similar line from a book by English author, P. G. Wodehouse, which was published posthumously, but well after the movie would have been made. Here it is, copied & pasted from Wikiquotes: Sunset at Blandings (1977 (posthumously published)) "Many a man may look respectable, and yet be able to hide at will behind a spiral staircase." I'm wondering if he saw the movie & expounded on it. Although, they didn't mention when he actually wrote the book, either. I did several net searches, to no avail. Oddly, IMDB.com didn't even have any of the Thin Man series movies listed for Powell beyond the first one. I was checking there for the quote. Anyone?
KUDOS, YOUNG NATALIE!!!

Your testimonial, below, brought a smile to this old cynic's face. I hope and trust that your love of classic cinema has only grown, in the intervening quadrennium (and a day), and that you have found some likeminded teenagers, or young adults, with whom you may enjoy your passion. For what it may be worth, I was a belated Beatlemaniac, when I started high school, months after the band's acrimonious breakup, and I was ridiculed throughout those four years, and on through college, for being so musically unhip! I feel fairly well vindicated, all of these decades later; and, I am quite confident that you will feel that same sense of vindication, by the time that you are my now-advanced age, if not long before. Buona fortuna, ragazza!
Teen Who Loves the Classics
The Thin Man series are the best movies I have ever seen. After seeing the first movie, I asked for the whole collection on DVD, and have seen each movie a dozen times. William and Myrna are the cutest couple I have ever seen, and it's their witty remarks and nicknames (mommy and Nicki) that keep me watching. There is no new movie with murder that can even compare to this. I love mysteries and comedies, and this is by far the best of both. I am 14 years old, and as surprised as many adults may be to hear this, I own more old movies than recent ones. Unfortunatly, I am the only person at my school who has ever heard of Cary Grant or Audrey Hepburn. I am very disappointed in the way movies and television have gone, but I would like every adult to know that there are a few teenagers who know and love old movies. This movie is a classic and I beg everyone to watch it because I promise you will love it.
Another Thin Man
I must say it is alot better then the first one, not that the first one wasn't good but this one was great! Willam Powell and Myran Loy are great at playing Nick and Nora Charles. The next time it comes on you should see it, it is a great movie.
