| High praise for the movie and cast.
I have enjoyed every episode of Nero Wolfe on A&E, but especially the two-parters which can qualify as full-length movies. Timothy Hutton is excellent as Archie Goodwin, and the supporting cast is outstanding. The idea of an ensemble or repertory company where many cast members play a different role in each movie or episode is first-rate, as is the quality of their performances. Prisoner's Base just seemed to me to be the most absorbing and involved of the movies and episodes which premiered during 2001, though I highly recommend each Nero Wolfe movie or episode if you enjoy mysteries, intelligent dialogue, superior acting and period pieces set in the 1940's and/or 1950's.
