For the second time the hallway outside of Perry's private door was shown (see #149 TCOT Borrowed Baby). The elevator this time was different from the earlier story. The first one had a round floor indicator and different up / down buttons. Perry and company also had a longer walk to get to his door than they did in the previous story. The way the hall was shown where were Perry's office window and balcony supposed to be? Submitted by H. Mason 4/15/15
+ Now we know why people like radio !! Inconsistencies in set design, sometimes even within an episode, are, of course, common in television, for a variety of technical reasons having to do with lighting, camera angles, etc. (and sometimes to match source material that is itself just plain inconsistent); but they do seem ironic - maybe even galling - don't they, in a show that so often hinges on obscure details and detecting (seemingly) undetectable flaws ?? IMHO the best way to interpret the PM set(s) is in a very general sense - a three-room in line suite, w/ a balcony on one side and (parallel) corridor on the other - and ignore the odd angles and continuity issues for what they are...artistic license. Opined by Notcom, 050516.

Especially in his first scene, Hunt Powers has a startling resemblance to the young Clark Gable.

Question: What happened to Vivian Norman, Rexford Wyler and Gerald Kelso? Submitted by H. Mason 4/15/15

"The Bluegrass State provided presidents for both sides: Abraham Lincoln for the Union and Jefferson Davis for the Confederacy. Both men were born in log cabins on the Kentucky frontier [less than 100 miles apart]," notes ("Birthplaces of Lincoln, Davis Illustrate Divide in 1860s Kentucky"). Mike Bedard 4.22.15
