It is rather enjoyable to see a judge who is the intellectual equal to Perry Mason. Indeed, Mason seems somewhat intimidated by him. It gives Mason a little more depth, makes him less of a cardboard superhero and more like a real attorney. Submitted by gracenote, 2/10/2011.

Not only does the judge match Perry’s intellect, but his heft as well! I can think of no other episode where Perry’s client seems to outweigh him. Submitted by Ed Zoerner, 8/22/2011.

If the display of clocks behind the TV newscaster looks familiar, “Airlines Oceanic Mexicana” had the same display at LAX four episodes earlier (#177, Elusive Element). Evidently this display was a popular status symbol in 1963 for companies wanting to look international. Submitted by masonite, 12/02/2011.

Victor Kendall, for one, enters a US Senate “SUB COMMITTEE [sic]” hearing room. Even in 1963 wasn’t “subcommittee” one word, the usual spelling? uses the one-word spelling, and I suppose that the people who ran the hearing would want to have good signage. Submitted by masonite, 12/02/2011.

An enjoyable excellent episode. I do not recall Perry having so many objections overruled. Submitted by Perry Baby 8/12/16.

Fast Friends? Though it was, of course, inevitable that Ms. Lamont's mission of mercy would end up at Perry's doorstep, it seems strange that the writer's chose to give the unmistakable impression that he and Redmond had little - if any - prior interaction: sure, our hero is world renowned, but your boss is in trouble and the first person you turn to is someone he doesn't really know...who he's just ruled against in court ??

Spoiler Warning! Do Not Read Below If You Have Not Seen The Episode

Given the flimsy evidence of fraud which forms the whole basis for the accusations against Judge Redmond, perhaps this episode might be a commentary about the Communist hearings of the 1950s, specifically the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, with James Wall (Lee Bergere) and Victor Kendall (David White) as McCarthyite figures. Submitted by gracenote, 7/27/2011.

Question: What happened to Madge Eberly???? As I have said in comment sections of other episodes these stories seem incomplete. All it would have taken was one line of dialog in the final scene saying she was going to be tried or given three years or anything to let the viewers know that she would be punished for her illegal activities.
