NBC radio's orchid-loving gourmand detective genius chases a fraudulent treasure map.
Stars Sydney Greenstreet as Nero Wolfe and Wally Maher as Archie Goodwin.
British actor, Sydney Greenstreet's stage career didn't give way to cinema roles until he reached his sixties, when his co-stars included Peter Lorre and Humphrey Bogart.
The New Adventures of Nero Wolfe ran from 1950-1951.
Wolfe originated in Rex Stout's books and two films were made, but the author disapproved and the character didn't stray into vision again until the late 1970s.
