In this adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's "The Farewell Murder", Nick and Nora (and their dog Asta) visit the estate of Col.

The elegant car that Nick and Nora ride out to Col. MacFay's estate in is a 1935 Lincoln. These were an expensive, low-production car, with only about 1,400 made that year. The major movie studios kept a number of expensive cars around for executive purposes, and they often did double duty as props as required in production. See more »
In the shot where Nora finds Asta's bone in little Nicky's crib you'll see Asta poke his head through the bars of the crib and grab the bone from her hand with his mouth. In the very next shot Asta is sitting obediently as Nora gives him the bone again. See more »
Policeman with flashlight:
We're going to have to shoot that mutt. We'll never find him like this.
Wait a minute. He's not going to come running up to a lot of strange men with lights. What do you think he is? A moth?

Long Island Intrigue Makes For An Entertaining Film!
Nick and Nora Charles (William Powell and Myrna Loy) are back for their third film in this series, and sporting a new addition to the family (Nick Jr.) Family business with one of Nora's father's associates leads them to a Long Island estate, where the bodies and suspects appear even before they arrive at their destination. Before long, the body count rises and the suspects take on an international flavor (in the form of a very young Sheldon Leonard, who later gained fame as the producer of "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and "I Spy"). Between cocktails, flirting and playful banter between the co-stars, the movie reaches a suspenseful end as Nick put the clues together and reconstructs the crime, probing the minds of those present until the murder cracks. Between your own cracking up (with laughter), you'll be guessing who done it to who in this well-constructed mystery-romantic comedy.
