Out of all the possible fictitious place names, why did story writers Kent and Libott choose the name of real California city San Carlos as the corrupt town? It is in the San Francisco peninsula, about 360 miles north of Los Angeles, and had a population of 20,000-25,000 in the 1960s per the US census bureau. But per Kent and Libott San Carlos seems as savory as Bay City. Submitted by (lowercase, with a comma and period) masonite, 10/29/13.
Was Brian Donlevy ailing during the filming of the episode? His voice sounds like he had a serious throat condition, making speech difficult. He still has 6 years more to live, and about 9 more roles to play. Submitted by (lowercase, with a comma and period) masonite, 10/29/13.
+ When I first saw his initial scene (and moments before reading here), to me he sounded like he was having painful teeth issues. Several scenes later though he does not seem to be having the same speech issue. Also, I thought this was his worst deadpan/no emotion acting job in all of his Perry appearances. Just my humble .02¢ opinion of course. Submitted by mesave31, 03/18/15.
Brian Donlevy did die from throat cancer in 1972 so this may be a reason. Submitted by Perry Baby 2/4/14
