The classic screen team of William Powell and Myrna Loy reunite in their most famous and beloved roles, sleuthing society couple Nick and Nora Charles.
The debonair duo would like nothing better than to spend their golden years relaxing, travelling, strolling with their beloved terrier Asta IV and, of course, sipping martinis.
But crime just can't seem to leave them alone. Especially since their son, Nick Jr. (Dean Stockwell, in a return to the role he first played at age11) has followed dear old dad into the detective trade and often seeks out his advice and assistance. Jr's wife (Paula Prentiss), an investigative reporter also named Nora is every bit the daring detective helpmate as her mother-in-law.
