How did you find me here?
I saw a great group of men standing around a table. I knew there was only one woman in the world who could attract men like that. A woman with a lot of money.

Not bad, but too many plot elements smother the comedy...
This third entry in the series was the last to be based on the Dashiell Hammet stories. It starts out interestingly enough, with Nick and Nora asked to spend some time with C. AUBREY SMITH who's been receiving death threats from a gangster (SHELDON LEONARD). So far, so good. RUTH HUSSEY is the nanny for the newborn Nick, Jr. and we immediately think she knows more than she says about the events that follow.
When Smith is murdered, Nick and Nora have to solve another crime, going about it with more sobriety than usual. Among the many suspects are OTTO KRUGER, VIRGINIA GREY, TOM NEAL, PATRIC KNOWLES, MARJORIE MAIN and, of course, SHELDON LEONARD.
The formula is set, the ingredients are there, and if you love Powell and Loy in their Nick/Nora guise, you'll no doubt enjoy this one. The plot is no more convoluted than usual, but the main pleasure is enjoying the chemistry and wit of two of the screen's favorite sleuths.
