Trivia:
The fifth of six "Thin Man" movies starring William Powell and Myrna Loy, filmed May 8-July 14 1944.See more »
Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: In the baggage car scene, Asta twice hides behind a milk can; once running from the right and the second time, running from the left. In the second sequence, the writing on the crates behind her is backwards. This is because the film editor simply reversed the negative from the first sequence in order to "create" the second.See more »

A quiet vacation for Nick and Nora? No chance., 28 June 2003
Author: Michael O'Keefe from Muskogee OK

This is the fifth in the "Thin Man series" and some of the magic is beginning to fade. Nick(William Powell) and Nora(Myrna Loy)Charles decide to vacation in Nick's small home town. Sipping cider is interrupted when Nora buys a painting that in turn gets Nick involved in a murder mystery against his disapproving parents wishes. My favorite scene is when Nora not so innocently starts a bar room brawl. Story line meanders a bit and is not as energetic as the previous installments; but still a fun movie to watch. The team of Powell and Loy still have "it". A great supporting cast features:Lucille Watson, Edward Brophy, Gloria DeHaven, Harry Davenport and Lloyd Corrigan. Interest in the husband and wife sleuths continues.
