Cast biographies and filmographies
Once my vision of Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin reconciled to Maury Chaykin and Tomothy Hutton in these roles, a surprisingly quick process, I became enthralled by their portrayals of these wonderful characters. I was amazed that the writers, directors and actors captured so truly the sense of the characters, the stories and the color that makes Rex Stout's novels such a delight to read not once but again and again. Rex Stout/Nero Wolfe fans will find these very easy to watch again and again.
Impeccable performances by a great team of repetoir actors and our headliners Chaykin and Hutton. Imaginative and highly visual drama with well placed humor. I laughed, I cried, I couldn't take my eyes off the period costume! Having the same core of players perform different roles in various segments was especially entertaining. Incredible talent of actors and technicals! You can watch this for fun, and for the pleasure of seeing how it all comes together. A keeper for sure.
