When Perry is told that Sylvia Oxman has been gambling in Gardena, Perry mentions that gambling is legal there. This is true; Gardena was issued the first legal card club license in the State of California, in 1936. Casinos provide the principal employment in Gardena to this day.

Perry is a good calculator. According to Mr. Duncan, The Clover Club charges between $0.50 and $2.00 per half-hour per chair, there are 35 tables, and they are open for 19 hours a day. There were 7 people playing at the table including Paul and Perry. Assuming an average take of $2.50 per hour per table and that the Clover Club was fully booked all day long, they took in $2.50 x 35 x 19 x 7 = $11,637.50 per day. Perry's "conservative" estimate of $10,000 is very close. Submitted by 10yearoldfan, 11 June 2012.
In January 1959, Patricia Cutts had to hire a lawyer in real life to get charges dismissed of leaving the scene of a 1958 accident in Los Angeles. Cutts said she talked to the lady driving the other car. The lady said she didn't recall Cutts talking to her. Submitted by MikeM, 11/06/2012
