Is it just me, or is Auntie Hilo's accent awfully peculiar? Ed Zoerner, 5/7/12.
+ Auntie Hilo, played by Miriam Goldina, was born in Russia and definitely has a European accent -- Perry Baby 10/13/13
+ + She was a Russian Jew, born on March 27, 1898 in Tsaritsyn, Russian Empire, as Miriam Goldstein. She studied under Stanislavsky at the Moscow Art Theatre, and she was the co-founder of the Los Angeles Junior Ballet with Irina Kosmovska. And, as if that was not strange enough, as a putative Hawaiian, she played the Christian classic hymn "Rock of Ages" on the harmonium. The mind boggles. Submitted by catyron, July 2nd, 2018

There is no such place as Kamehameha Point, but there in a Fort Kamehameha, which is named after Kamehameha I. He conquered the Hawaiian Islands and formally established the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi in 1810. He also made alliances with the major colonial powers in the Pacific and made it possible for the islands to remain independent. Submitted by Neil Van Zile, 6/16/2014

The ʻIʻiwi bird is a real bird and it is red, but it is not extinct. In fact it is one of the most common native bird on the Hawaiian Islands. It was extirpated from the island of Lānaʻi in 1929, but is still found on the other islands of the chain. It is, however, currently listed as Vulnerable on the International Union for Conservation of Nature's list of endangered species. Submitted by Neil Van Zile, 6/16/2014

Perry assumed Auntie Hilo was the mother of Anona Gilbert. He usually doesn't make that type of mistake. Submitted by H. Mason 4/22/15

Wende Wagner, who plays Anona Gilbert in this episode, went on to play the athletic Casey Case in The Green Hornet a few years later. That girl really knew how to fill out a dress. Or in this instance, a sarong or muumuu. JohnK, 9 November 2015.

Hawaii Five-O aired an episode about the Theft of the King's Feather Cloak. Mike Bedard 4.30.15

Charlie Chan Suit? Is it me or does Lt. Kia played by Jon Hall appear to be wearing a suit worn by Charlie Chan in several movies? Funny how this happens in the very next episode after Roland Winters (Charlie Chan was a role he played) appeared in episode 229. Submitted by HamBurger 10/10/2016
+Maybe Jon Hall borrowed the suit from Warner Oland when he appeared in "Charlie Chan in Shanghai" (1935), and it took only another thirty years for him to grow into it. Submitted by BobH, 20 February 2017.

o ka hale paʻahao bound Though the producers made excellent use of that ancient Hawaiian custom - the post-trial luau (for both the defense and prosecution) they had to forgo one of PM's trademarks...the looming gas chamber: the Aloha State has abolished capital punishment in 1957 (as noted in this link, apparently Hawaii maintains "mainland facilities": truth can be stranger than pulp fiction). Noted by Notcom, 060117.

Surely a spear gun would pierce a body through. Too, it is never explained why the killer took the trouble to prop the body at the desk. And, for once, our suspect has the good sense to NOT handle the murder weapon. Can't recall another episode with a microphone at the witness stand. DOD 03/18/20

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

Ethical Exception: I'm no lawyer, so I could be wrong on this. But at the start of the episode, Perry's client was said to be a hotel chain (not the wealthy parrot guy Jarvis Logan). Still, along the way, in working for that client, Perry gathered information that he used against Jarvis in the trial. Surely there is some conflict at work here. JohnK, 9 November 2015
