What a poorer society we are because there are no longer actors like Thomas B. Henry on television. Mr. Henry was less than handsome, with a distinctive appearance, but was a fine actor. Check out his testimony late in the show, it is riveting. It seems as if all of today’s television actors are selected for their appearance, not for their acting abilities. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 7/19/2008.
+ He reminds me of actor Al Lewis. This is the second of his three Perry episodes: Ralph Duncan in "The Case of the Sleepwalker's Niece (1957)", this episode, and Hartley Basset in "The Case of the Treacherous Toupee (1960)". jfh 23Jul2018.

In this episode, it would appear that Perry's Office butted against Garvin's but we know Perry has a door on the wall behind his desk. If there is a hallway between Perry's and Garvin's office it must be small. Of course, the exterior shots of the Brent Building does not have balconies. Submitted by Perry Baby 1/21/18.
+ When we get a look out of Garvin's office window, the view confirms that the offices are indeed very close together; no parallax! Garvin's view of LA is the same as Perry's. Added by Gary Woloski, 7/23/18.

A rare episode in which we never see the body. For his appointment with the San Diego DA, Perry is uncharacteristically casual - he wears no necktie. And just what was it that Virginia Colfax was hired to do? DOD 07/23/18

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

Thomas B. Henry also appeared in “TCOT Sleepwalker’s Niece.” Brown gave another fine performance in this episode as the lawyer Ralph Duncan. Perry’s final tip-off as to the murderer came from some testimony given by Duncan. Submitted by Charles Richmond. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 7/20/2008.

Out this trial we have several crimes to prosecute beyond the murder: Colfax for perjury, breaking and entering, impersonation, car theft. Submitted by Perry Baby 1/21/18.
