After the Thin Man -- The first of five sequels to 1934's "The Thin Man" brings private eye Nick Charles (William Powell) and wife Nora (Myrna Loy) on a visit to her rich family in San Francisco where Nick helps a local flatfoot (Sam Levene) solve a murder case. Though the mystery is not as perplexing as the original, director W.S. Van Dyke II makes it seem almost as much fun, thanks to the breezy byplay between the sleuthing couple and an odd gallery of suspects (notably James Stewart, Joseph Calleia and George Zucco). Murder mystery menace. (A-II) (br) (1936)
