This is yet another episode where violence against women, particularly husband against wife, has hardly any consequences for the perpetrator. Assault and battery, anyone? Submitted by gracep, 11/18/2010.

For all the folderol made concerning the age difference between Dorine and David, at the time of the episode Patricia Barry was 40 and Karl Held 30, hardly the "child" he is made out to be. cgraul 10.20.11

Ah, Patricia Barry, once again with that voice that probably worked (on men) better than steroids, playing another role, as a Noir film once put it, "Like the 60 cent special at the local diner, pure poison under the gravy." Submitted by MikeReese, 12/28/2016

Bad Accent Dept.: PM (like other shows of the time) is full of actors doing bad foreign accents. In this episode, French-Canadian actress Fifi D'Orsay's accent sounds like she must have come from the Italian part of France. Strangely unconvincing for someone who actually must have spoken French. Submitted by francis, 4/21/12.

Minor Anomaly When David Gideon rouses in the dark after being knocked out we see him immediately turn on the light. However, later when speaking with Perry, he said he had to light matches to see the envelope's contents after being knocked out. Submitted by ace, 8/9/12.

Quick healer: After Dorine was pushed out of the car her eye was either completely healed or she did a better job covering it with make-up. Submitted by H. Mason 11/10/14 minor correction: her eye is actually already healed one scene earlier when she's on the phone with David.

I found Phil Arthur's acting on the stand to be quite unusual. His slow comments "Let me think, I do not want to lie" was quite odd. I would say it is bad acting but not sure if that is what the director wanted. It just seemed completely inconsistent with everyone else. Submitted by Perry Baby 1/10/16
