I have to say that, to my surprise, I rather enjoyed Sue Ane Langdon’s ditzy but good-hearted performance, especially in the scenes with the very Irish and very demonstrative Sean McClory. The two of them are hilarious together! (Until the game turns dark.) Submitted by gracenote, 3/31/2011.

I would have given anything to be the 'eyes' of the two women who came in upon 'Bonnie' in the opening scenes as she was posing for 'Hannibal'. That Sue Ane Langdon .. whew! Yes, I know she was not likely truly topless, but a man can imagine, can't he?? Submitted by MikeReese, 3/27/2014.
--- the above comment demonstrates that objectifying women still persists even though the fifties are long gone and we are now well into the 21st century ---

In the first scene, as Ivy pays off the taxi driver (who appears to be in his 60s), she says, “There you go, Sonny,” a bit of humor revealing her lively personality. Submitted by cgraul, 11/8/2011.

It was actually Ivy's companion, Lottie (Isabel Randolph), who said it ("Here you are, son. Keep the change."). Ivy is played by Nydia Westman who, 25 years earlier in "The Cat and the Canary", fed Bob Hope the line, "Don't big, empty houses scare you?" Submitted by masonite, 12/10/12.

It seems to be a "stock character" trait in PM episodes that if an artist is involved, he must emote all his lines loudly and appear emotionally uncontrolled. The artists I have known are all controlled, calm and pleasant personalities. cgraul 3.13.2013

The goofy tone and breakneck pacing of much of this episode suggests a screwball comedy from 1930's, not very Perry at all. At first, I thought I had accidentally tuned in an old, silly movie. Submitted by EricM 12/8/14

Of all the times Paul and Perry "tipped" for information, the bill given to the bartender seemed unnecessary. There didn't seem to be a reluctance to answer that would necessitate a cash payment. Was Paul impatient or was the scene poorly played? Submitted by H. Mason 4/6/15

Hannibal Harvey -- what an annoying character! I barely lasted through the opening scene where, for some reason, he's "singing" a song at the top of his lungs and can be heard all the way down on the first floor. Do real sculptors scream while they work? And later on he smashes some of his own artworks, and a mirror. Maybe he should try selling them instead of destroying them if he needs $10,000 so bad. Unfortunately, he wasn't the murder victim. Submitted by scarter 4/19/15
