Synopsis

Before film noir turned the "gumshoe" (private detective) into a tortured soul, there was the character of the debonair sleuth, best represented by Nick Charles from The Thin Man - aided and abetted by his loving and glamorous wife Nora. In part, this is pure screwball comedy, with lots of great one-liners, usually to do with Nick and Nora's careless cocktail consumption: "What hit me?" asks one. "The last martini," replies the other. Aside from the onscreen sparks between husband and wife, there's also a compelling murder mystery to investigate when a high society inventor is implicated in a crime that Charles doesn't believe he can be guilty of.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
