Summary

This episode of the Adventures of Nero Wolfe first aired on March 9, 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.

Excellent Production!!!!

This is an excellent old time radio program. It would be ridiculous to compare it to a Rex Stout novel... obviously. But it is a wonderful representation of old time radio theater at its best, featuring a cast that is second to none.

Cry Wolfe.

Poor Archie unlucky in love. I think he gets his heart broken every episode. He's like most gumshoes, he's an hopeless romantic and they never get married.
