The Doorbell Rang: A Nero Wolfe Mystery [VHS]
If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support?
When eccentric millionaire Rachel Bruner arrives at the doorstep of detective Nero Wolfe's brownstone, she brings an extraordinary offer, a disturbing story of harassment, and an FBI tail. Only after Wolfe takes the case does the murder come to light. The premiere episode of A&E's original series based on Rex Stout's beloved Nero Wolfe novels, THE DOORBELL RANG sees the epicurean detective (Maury Chaykin) and his dogged assistant Archie Goodwin (Oscar® winner Timothy Hutton, who also directed) taking on J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI. As the story unfolds, however, it becomes clear that the Agency is not guilty of murder-in this case, anyway-and their reluctant cooperation is essential to capturing a killer. Sophisticated and suspenseful, THE DOORBELL RANG captures the wit and style that have made Wolfe one of fiction's most famous detectives.
Top Customer Reviews
"The Doorbell Rang" is great entertainment, and a great example of what to expect from the rest of the series. It is faithful to Stout's novel.
If you are unfamiliar with Nero Wolfe, and are looking for entertainment that is more cerebral than the car crashes and explosions that pass for entertainment today, I think you'd be satisfied.
Prior to purchase I wanted to ensure I would be receiving a DVD and not a VHS tape. Easily identified and accepted. Other productions are available but this start is PRIME!
