A wealthy couple solves yet another mystery.

Similar to Another Thin Man, it might seem pretty good if it weren't necessarily compared to the original. This time, the story is more of a mess (with a mystery that you couldn't possibly care about), featuring at least one long, boring, gratuitous stretch without Nick and Nora in it.
