Quick Overview

Starring Edward Arnold, Lionel Stander, Dennie Moore, Victor Jory, Nana Bryant, Rita

Hayworth

Directed by Herbert J. Biberman



Print: black/white

Runtime: 73 min.

Genre: mystery

Print Quality: B



Rex Stout's overweight, under-exercised detective Nero Wolfe was first brought to the

screen in 1936 in the portly person of Edward Arnold. As brusque and short-tempered as

ever, Wolfe tackles the case of a college professor who met his doom while playing golf, a

tragedy followed by the seemingly unrelated death of a young mechanic. Dispatched to do

Wolfe's leg work is his acerbic aide Archie Goodwin (Lionel Stander), who manages to

discover that both deaths were tied in with a new weapon which silently shoots poisoned

needles. Rex Stout wasn't too pleased with the expurgated screen treatment of his fictional

sleuth, whose fondness for imported beers was changed by the censors to a predilection

for hot chocolate! Well directed by Broadway vet Herbert Biberman, Meet Nero Wolfe was

followed in 1937 by The League of Frightened Men, with Walter Connolly as Wolfe.
