Synopsis

Gourmet Nero Wolfe interrupts his orchid-tending to take on the case of a lady tycoon who wants to know why she's under investigation by the FBI, only to find himself enmeshed in a puzzling murder-mystery. This pilot to a prospective Nero Wolfe series went on the shelf after being made in 1977 because of the death of its star and finally emerged in a late, post-midnight premiere. The subsequent series about Rex Stout's eccentric sleuth starred William ("Cannon") Conrad as Wolfe and Lee ("Matt Houston") Horsley as his right-hand man, Archie Goodwin.
