DIM WITTED REVIEWS FOR LIKE-MINDED MOVIE PATRONS

Saturday, February 27, 2010


The Shadow of the Thin Man (1941)
Starring: Myrna Loy, William Powell, and Donna Reed
Directed by: W.S. Van Dyke

Once again, the flimsy story involving racetrack related murders, as well as the predictable outcome-are not what makes the film enjoyable. The chemistry between Loy and Powell is even more evident in this one, especially w/ their perky four year old son providing additional opportunities for that chemistry to develop. Without even knowing the story, without taking into account how lovely Donna Reed was at the start of her career, and even without appreciating the witty dialogue that these films are famous for...that endearing way that the two leads play off of each other is enough, on its own, to warrant giving this an easy
8/10
