The guy who plays Abrams


is Levine who also plays a cop in "The Killers". A much darker mystery but well worth seeing.

Just thought I'd mention it.

Yes he is. Sam Levene was a well-known character actor. He was also in the 4th Thin Man series and was also in other film voir movies.

Hope this helps.

Sam was the original Nathan Detroit in Broadway's "Guys and Dolls". Whenever he shows up in a movie, if my husband is in the room (a former community theatre Nathan) he starts to sing "Why, it's good old reliable Nathan - Nathan, Nathan, Nathan Detroit".

Also, check him out in a small pivotol role in "Crossfire".





"Fortunately, I keep my feathers numbered for just such an emergency."

I thought Sam Levene was just wonderful as Abrams in this, and found the movie itself to be as good as, if not better than, the original "Thin Man". How great it would have been to see him on stage as Nathan Detroit!

Yes, Levene's performance is part of the reason it's the best of the series.
