The Kennel Murder Case

A FILM BY: Michael Curtiz

STARRING: William Powell, Mary Astor, Eugene Pallette

Widely regarded as the best screen adaptation of S.S. Van Dine's Philo Vance mystery novels, THE KENNEL MURDER CASE cast William Powell as the suave detective a year before he soft-shoed his way into the not dissimilar Nick Charles role in THE THIN MAN. A B-movie tricked out with A+ technique and impressive forward momentum, THE KENNEL MURDER CASE secured Curtiz's reputation as a studio craftsman who could enliven any script.
