    Great movie, a real pleasure to watch. I really love movies that use a murder mystery as a Macguffin in order to showcase actors, relationships, and dialogue. William Powell and Myrna Loy are one of the greatest couples in cinematic history. 11 years 6 months ago

    My brain isn't very good with these sorts of movies; I can never keep track of everything that's happening. I did still enjoy it though. 10 years ago
