Nero Wolfe, featured in 46 novels, movies, and television series, first came to radio on April 7, 1943. The great character actor Sydney Greenstreet played him from 1950-51. Wolfe, the "gargantuan gourmet", solved crimes with an attention to detail that rivaled the great Sherlock Holmes. The overweight detective of Rex Stout's novels refused to leave his elegant brownstone on business, sending his wisecracking, two-fisted assistant, Archie Goodwin, out to do his legwork. This peculiar private investigator preferred tending to his beloved orchids over solving crimes. In fact, the only reason he worked at all was to keep up his lavish lifestyle.

This is the second Nero Wolfe radio program I've listened to. Sydney Greenstreet is an ok Wolfe. My only problem with him , is I think he laughs to much. I don't remember Wolfe having a sense of humor, in the books I read or the tv show I watched. I plan to listen to more.
a very entertaining and enjoyable little story which is well acted and quite funny as well as being dramatic and gripping. ..what ya waiting for. ..
