Opening Encounters

Since, in a post earlier today, I mentioned the two adaptations of Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe stories that made it onto American television, I thought it would be enjoyable to revisit those shows through their main title sequences. So I am embedding below: (1) one of the openings (every episode changed the title design somewhat) from A&E’s A Nero Wolfe Mystery, which starred Maury Chaykin and Timothy Hutton, as well as the wonderful Bill Smitrovich and--in most installments--Kari Matchett; and (2) the introduction to 1981’s Nero Wolfe, an NBC series that starred William Conrad (late of Cannon) and Lee Horsley (before he made a name for himself in Matt Houston).
