    Shadow of the Thin Man (MGM, 1941). Insert (14" X 36").
    We haven't offered this sensational insert for several years, and this one is in outstanding condition. It was inspired by the fourth film in the highly successful Thin Man series, and the last to be directed by W.S. Van Dyke. This top murder-comedy again stars William Powell and Myrna Loy as married detectives Nick and Nora Charles. A murder takes place at a horse racetrack and the long list of suspects include Loring Smith, Joseph Anthony, Stella Adler, and Donna Reed. Nicky Jr. also makes an appearance, played by Dickie Hall. Minor edge wear, creases in the top border, small surface paper loss in the bottom left, and chips in the top border are noted, but do not detract from the fun images of the stars and their famous canine, Asta. Rolled, Fine/Very Fine.
