Even considering today’s “anything goes” mentality, this episode seems racy to me, i.e., the nephew having a “relationship” with his aunt-in-law. It must have been seen as particularly bold in its day. Submitted by billp 6/14/09

$80,000 in 1960 would be worth about $576,324 today. Submitted by billp, 6/14/2009.

Another plot that relies on rather casual identification of a body. DOD 09/02/18

Sue Randall makes her first of two appearances on Perry playing murder defendant Betty Wilkins. Every baby boomer will remember Sue Randall much better as Beaver Cleaver’s grade school teacher, Miss Alice Landers. Sue Randall died at the age of 49 in 1984. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 06/26/2009.

James Anderson is best known as the villainous Tom Ewell in "To Kill a Mockingbird". DOD 09/02/18

Notice when Alice Gorman leaves the cabin which is on fire, she enters her car from the passenger side and awkwardly scoots to the driver’s side. It makes little sense in reality since entering on the driver’s side is what most folks do, especially if they are in a hurry. But from the camera’s point of view it makes perfect sense since she stays in frame for the entire scene. Submitted by Kenmore, 11/10/2009.

I love Perry's coffee carafe! (at 42:31 on DVD) submitted by scarter 8/21/14

Funny how William Campbell who played "Trelane" in the Star Trek episode reminds us a little like Liberace in that Star Trek episode and is shown at the end of this episode, when revealed by Paul Drake wearing a "Liberace" style hat ! ;-) Submitted by HamBurger, Aug. 24, 2014 <<<<<<<

Perry ID's Beautiful Cocktail Waitress as Frances Banks near the end in court but she never gets a credit. Anyone know who she is or if she appears in other episodes? Eric C 16 Aug 16 =======

"The Case of the Ill-Fated Artful Dodging Faker." At several points in this episode, Paul Drake refers to Jim Ferris's having at least one alias, but never supplies it. One can only wonder whether Ferris's alias might be Allen Sheridan (See Episode #78, TCOT Artful Dodger), another scheming nephew--also played by William Campbell--who's trying to bilk money out of a wealthy relative by claiming that gangsters are putting the bite on him.
