The sparkling series featured the irresistible William Powell and Myrna Loy chemistry as husband and wife sleuths who solved murders with the aid of their wire-haired terrier, Asta. Set in the glamorous world of 1930s upper-class Manhattan, The Thin Man and its sequels established the standard for witty comedy, clever dialogue and urbane one upmanship.

This fantastic collection includes 'The Thin Man', 'After the Thin Man', 'Another Thin Man', 'Shadow of the Thin Man', 'The Thin Man Goes Home', and the 'Thin Man Bonus Disc' which includes two insightful documentaries, "William Powell: A True Gentleman" and "Myrna Loy: So Nice To Come Home To."

Digitally remastered, the DVDs are further enhanced with classic comedy, mystery and musical shorts, two radio dramas and a 1957 episode from the hit TV series based on the original characters with Peter Lawford and Phyllis Kirk taking on the roles of Nick and Nora Charles.

    Fun, wonderful, surprisingly modern and joyful films. Nick and Nora will always be my favourite detectives.

    I loved these films as did the rest of the family! I only wish they had made more in the series.
