Basically a "Thin Man" mystery with the names changed and Ginger Rogers in the Myrna Loy role, this is a typically witty and sophisticated entertainment starring Powell as Clay Dalzell, a suave attorney who finds himself embroiled in a complicated whodunit. The leading lady of a Broadway

show vanishes, and, soon after, a Gotham gossip columnist sets a meeting with Clay to reveal the nature of the disappearance. Before the truth can be come out, the columnist is killed and Clay becomes the chief suspect, leaving him to solve the crimes in order to clear himself. Rogers is his love,

always there with a quip and a martini when he needs one, and together they solve the dual mystery. Despite its being highly derivative of Powell's THIN MAN films, STAR OF MIDNIGHT is a well-crafted and breezy whodunit with plenty of thrills, laughs, and style. Powell and Rogers make a pleasant

team.
