I have now seen "Before I Die" done with both Nero Wolfe TV productions. The later one produced by Mr. Hutton in the 1990's and shown on A & E is more flippant but equally enjoyable as a mystery story. However, I like the actor that plays Archie in the 1981 series. Though he is drop dead gorgeous and boyishly charming, he still manages to imbue the character with some depth. I was impressed with his ability to convey kindness and tenderness when the occasion called for it. I like this mystery. One of the reasons is that the author offers a very good clue to the viewer. It can be frustrating to have the solution thrust upon one without so much as a hint, but this mystery plays fair, there is a very good hint.
