When Nick returns to the locker room at the race track, and Asta is scared off by the black kitten, Nick passes an office. You can see a man in the reflection of the window. He is wearing a white shirt and appears to be giving hand commands to Asta. His movements mimic Nick's at first, but when Nick turns to head for the shower room, the man in the white shirt stays in the same position. See more »

and beyond, as Nick & Nora Charles (William Powell, Myrna Loy) are caught up in the death of a jockey quite by accident. The bodies begin to fall after that, as murder to cover up tracks, the crime syndicate, crossed lovers and crooked officials enter the picture before the showdown in the Charles' apartment sorts out the guilty from the innocent. I found this movie to be one of the more entertaining of the "Thin Man" series, with a pair of memorably funny scenes: when Nora discovers the joys of wrestling (and gets caught up in that excitement) and the restaurant fight scene. All in all, it is an entertaining movie, but then I could expect no less from the fine professional acting of both Powell and Loy.
