After the Thin Man

After the Thin Man- 1936, Directed by W.S. Van Dyke II, Starring William Powell, Myrna Loy, Elissa Landi and James Stewart

He says- Delightful second entry in the series finds the urbane Charleses in San Francisco and, when not inordinately inebriated, investigating murder charges brought against Loy's unstable cousin (Landi).  Slightly overlong, but first rate with a truly surprising culprit.  Also shown in computer-colored version.  3 and a half stars

I say-  I really am not liking this series of movies.  Seemed like they were fun many many years ago, but now they're just EXTREMELY dated.  UGH.  1 star
