Publisher's Summary

This episode of the Adventures of Nero Wolfe first aired on January 19, 1951.

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.

One of the bettrr ones.

I enjoyed this one. Gerald Moore was excellent as Archie Goodwin. The plot held up ok, though was slightly like one of the written ones...The Rubber Band....but only slightly. Will worth tge purchase.

Enjoyable

I like listening to old radio productions of Rex Stout's Nero Wolfe books. I find the actors interpretation of Nero's laugh unusual.
