An investigation is made for unsteady MHD thin film flow of a third grade fluid down an inclined plane with no slip boundary condition. The governing nonlinear partial differential equations involved are reduced to linear partial differential equations using regular perturbation method. The resulting equations were solved using method of separation of variable and eigen functions expansion. The solutions obtained were examined and discussed graphically. It is interesting to find that the variation of the velocity and temperature profile with the magnetic field parameter and gravitational parameter depends on time.
