I think Nerts! is a corruption of Nuts! used in place of swearing. eg Archie Goodwin when annoyed. Which is why someone saw it in a black and white film; in modern films they usually just swear.

Definite Rex Stout fan. I had never read the books till I saw the series on PBS with Timothy Hutton. Can't believe I missed them for so long.
Got a favorite?
