I have to agree with FredK (see Trivia item, above) that it is improbable to have Whelan missing from the hearing. It seems rather convoluted going on without him. What a shame the producers just didn’t seem to want to pony up the money for Anderson to appear. (It’s more frustrating when one realizes it would have been possible to have Anderson on screen without speaking at a time when his presence was most critical). Submitted by gracenote, 7/21/2011.
+ I have read that some television shows had to cut costs near the end of a season because they were low on funds. That seemed to be happening in this and the previous episode (#150) where two key characters were only mentioned [Mrs. Farnham and Mr. Hollingsworth]. Added by H. Mason 12/10/14

A professional theatre of that size (note the large stage and house) would have been a union house. At the re-enactment, Perry has Paul lower a “tormenter” (side blocking curtain), which would have been allowed under no circumstances without a union stagehand present—and probably even then the union would have prohibited Paul from operating the curtain rail, insisting a stagehand perform the function (at scale rates of course).

Having only ever seen Harry Van Zell as the jovial announcer on "Burns and Allen", I was very impressed by his dramatic ability here. The smuggling method may allude to a major plot point in "Gaslight". DODay 11/03/17
