The sleuth couple do give each other gifts. Sure murder, intrigue, and a lot of drinking, take place in in the whole Christmas spirit, it's there and there shouldn't even be a reason why to watch this great movie!
William Powell and Myrna Loy played the screen couple, Nick and Nora. Nick is a sleuth who always say that he's retired but finds himself solving his crimes. Nora, she's a rich tough, wisecracking beauty who is there always to help Nick, even when he has a hangover.
So as a child who grew up with these movies and last year watch "Return of the The Thin Man," last Christmas Eve, it's no wonder why "The Thin Man," got on the Christmas list. More should watch this screwball series.
