Publisher's Summary

This episode of the Adventures of Nero Wolfe first aired on December 15, 1950.

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.

Cry Wolfe.

Another great show. My only problem with this radio program is that it seems they have a different actor playing Archie every week. Nero Wolfe may be the center of the show, but Archie is not a secondary character. He's just as important to the series as Nero. It seems the radio show didn't think he was worth having a permient actor playing him. Big mistake. Nero and Archie are the beat detective team since Holmes and Watson.
