Charming. Engrossing. Classic.
Nick (Powell) and Nora Charles (Loy) are a happily married couple spending Christmas in New York. Nick used to be a pretty nifty private eye but has settled down with the help of his wealthy heiress wife. Now, with the disappearance of an old client, Nick is thrust back in the detective seat, only this time his wife wants to help. Powell and Loy are adorable together, and the comedy works so well because it’s placed perfectly within an intriguing mystery. Nick and Nora will always be a hallmark for screen chemistry.
