Publisher's Summary

After the Thin Man combines crime, kisses, and cocktails in the second Thin Man adventure! Here is the classic Lux Radio Theater performance of the 1936 movie hit After the Thin Man, recreated in 1940 as a 60-minute radio adaptation with the original film stars!This Audio Archive presentation features William Powell and Myrna Loy, who reprise their original roles as newly retired detective Nick Charles and his beautiful (and wealthy) bride, Nora. The newlyweds take the Sunset Limited train from New York back to San Francisco, just in time for New Year's Eve...and just in time for a murder among Nora's very own Nob Hill family.Nick continues insisting that he's out of the "detective racket". But one murder leads to another, and soon the two tipsy sleuths are up to their Nob-by knees in mahem and mystery.William Powell was a three-time Academy Award-nominated American actor, noted for his sophisticated, cynical film roles. Myrna Loy was a big box-office draw, and in 1936 was named Queen of the Movies (with Clark Gable as the King) in a nationwide poll of movie goers.
