Cinematography: Perhaps one of the most powerful camera shots in the entire series comes at the end of the final courtroom scene, as the camera, from the point of view of the judge, slowly and silently pans the entire room. Submitted by francis 1/18/12 There is excellent cinematography throughout this episode. Submitted by Rickapolis 8/11/16
+Interesting that the camera "slowly and silently pans the 'entire room'" but stops short of showing Della. jfh 22May2017.
--- update: In today's airing of this episode on MeTV, Della is shown in the final courtroom pan. jfh 13Jun2019.

Distinguished Gentleman makes another appearance as court reporter. We get a good look at Della’s unique filing system - a separate drawer for each of the first twelve letters of the alphabet. When Paul makes his second entrance into Perry’s office, there is a large plant left of the door. In later episodes there would be a table with painting above here. After consulting Perry, Nora Mae wears the stolen rings through the house to her room. Odd, indeed. DOD 06/01/18

Della and Perry handle the pills with their bare hands, apparently unconcerned that they might be poisonous. Second episode in a row--and at least the sixth so far--featuring an affluent, childless, unhappily-married couple. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 4-18-14.

The scene of Nora Mae carrying the tray of milk to Mrs. Gordon is reminiscent of Cary Grant carrying a glass on a tray in the 1946 film Suspicion, directed by Alfred Hitchcock. Submitted by H. Mason 10/23/14

"Arsenic Trioxide" is defined as "a white, tasteless, amorphous, slightly water-soluble, poisonous powder used chiefly in the manufacture of pigments and glass, as an insecticide, weed-killer, etc." [Webster's Encyc. Unabr. Dict.]. Mike Bedard 5.1.15
