The episode opens with an establishing shot of a long, busy boulevard at night. We see a sign at the right that says Mayflower. That's the old Mayflower Hotel at 535 S. Grand Avenue in Los Angeles. For a modern view, see here. In the episode, we're looking roughly south on the street in the direction of W. 6th Street. Today the hotel is called "Checkers," and it's in a canyon of large, ugly buildings. LA was a lot nicer in Perry's day. billp 1/12/09.
In the final scene, why didn't Perry and company ask for Mae to be their waitress? Submitted by H. Mason 9/30/14.
Why do Perry and Paul have the same odd-looking headboard on their beds? Submitted by scarter, 1/20/15
+ While both headboards are tufted fabric, Perry's appears to be velvet and more fully stuffed, and Paul's headboard is more of a polished cotton fabric with more tufts and less stuffing. jfh 010ct2019
There were some interesting Money amounts for 1957: a $1,000 Retainer & a $100 Bail Bond. Amendment 8: "Excessive BAIL shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted [taken word for word from the 1689 English Bill of Rights]." Mike Bedard 4.7.15
Seems whenever we have a "guest" police officer, he turns out to be a bad guy.
"The Case of the (Almost) Wordless Waitress." Co-defendant Dixie Dayton speaks only two lines of dialogue--a grand total of five words--in the entire episode, all in the very first scene: "Excuse me" and "Oh thanks, Morey." Submitted by BobH, 11 December 2019.
