Movie Info

In this film, Rex Stout's overweight, under-exercised detective Nero 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.
