The creepy, lecherous, threatening male nurse is appalling. I guess a girl isn't safe anywhere! Submitted by gracenote, 4/27/2011.

+ It is also appalling but completely typical of the times that Reggie did not report his behaviour to his employer. Granted, the second time, she was too distraught, but she certainly could have the first time. I grew up in the era of silence re everything from molestation to rape. We were not supposed to question male behaviour. Sickening. It was at least something to have Perry speak up against the nurse during the trial. Submitted by JazzBaby, 6/17/2019.

+ And Paul was in no hurry to return Reggie's good luck charm to her after her failed parachute jump, even though she and her agent, Bennie, spent about a minute at Bennie's car talking. However, when Paul later found out that Reggie was at a cocktail lounge....Submitted by (lowercase, with a comma and period) masonite, 06/29/13.

Poor Perry's arm is still out of commission!

Was it really ever possible to stroll into a store and buy dynamite?

Reggie's agent, Bennie, has a series of dodgy stunts arranged for her -- the parachute jump, the Brahma bull riding, the final stunt shown in her attempt to break into the movies -- but why did neither of them seriously question what she would have to do for the $5,000? In 2013 dollars, that is $36,000(!). Didn't that possibly sound too good to be true for an unknown? Submitted by (lowercase, with a comma and period) masonite, 06/29/13.
+It was a secret. Reggie was told after she passed her tests. You don't tell anybody you're going to fake a channel swim until you're sure the person can be trusted. Added by H. Mason 4/27/15

The opening scene features a rare instance of real time filming of a car in motion, rather than the usual rear projection. Lee Bergere bears a strong resemblance to Hank Azaria. In the course of doing her test dives, Reggie's swimsuit changes. DOD 03/12/19

An Oddity: In this story Perry Mason was not shown with his client until the first scene in the courtroom. Submitted by H. Mason 4/27/15

Private "I" Fees: Paul charges "$100 & expenses" per day; Jim Rockford's fee is "$200 a day + expenses." Mike Bedard 5.7.15

+ In the 1946 MGM film Lady in the Lake, Philip Marlowe's daily rate is just ten bucks. Plus expenses of course. JohnK, 24 March 2019

There appears to be no relationship between Barbara Hale and guest actress Jean Hale. HiTechHiTouch 28 Feb 2018
