After the Thin Man is a 1936 American comedy-mystery film directed by W. S. Van Dyke and starring William Powell, Myrna Loy, and James Stewart. It is the sequel to the 1934 film The Thin Man and was followed by Another Thin Man in 1939. The film opens with Nick and Nora Charles (Powell and Loy) returning to San Francisco after their honeymoon. They are immediately drawn into another mystery when they receive a visit from Dorothy Wynant (Maureen O'Sullivan), the daughter of a wealthy inventor who has disappeared. Wynant's former fiancé, Tommy (Stewart), also appears and is suspected of being involved in the disappearance.

The plot thickens when more characters are introduced, including Wynant's ex-wife, Mimi (Elissa Landi), and her gangster husband, Chris (Joseph Calleia). Nick and Nora must navigate through a web of lies and deceit to uncover the truth behind the disappearance and protect themselves from danger.

As in the previous film, Powell and Loy's witty banter and chemistry as the Charleses steal the show. Stewart, in one of his early roles, also shines as the charming yet troubled Tommy. The supporting cast, including Calleia as the menacing Chris and Jessie Ralph as Nick's disapproving former mother-in-law, add depth and humor to the film.

The film's setting of San Francisco is also notable, with stunning shots of the city's landmarks and Chinatown adding to the atmosphere. The film's score, featuring music by Oscar-winning composer Herbert Stothart, adds to the suspense and mystery.

Overall, After the Thin Man is a delightful and entertaining film that showcases the talents of its actors and director. The film's clever plot twists and humor keep the audience engaged, while the chemistry between Powell and Loy adds heart to the story.

After the Thin Man is a 1936 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 53 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.6.
