They're great fun but they are not novellas, but screenplay outlines. Very amusing none the less with wit to spare.

We owe so much to Dashiell Hammett. He wrote so many wonderful movies and Hollywood made the most of his work with great casts. I call the series a buried treasure since KCLS has 7 copies of Dashiell Hammett "Return of the Thin Man" and only one is out with a patron. It is a lot to ask to be as good as the first "Thin Man". "Return of the Thin Man" will not disappoint. It is just another fine picture with William Powell, Myrna Loy and their dog Astor. The ploy is similar with someone murdered, but we won't have Nick Charles tell us who it is until the last 10 minutes of the film. It is all really done in fun, even the ending were never grim. It comes to the murderer as a surprise that Nick could possibly know who did it. They were so clever, so Nick tells us all how he figured the mystery out. He was one smart former police detective, that really wanted to stay retired to live the good life. Along the way, 80 years ago this film series started. The audience loved it so much that a series of "Thin Man" film were produced. For anyone who hasn't seen the "Thin Man" you might really find it a buried treasure. I have seen them over and over, and still delight in their wonderful family.
