#268: The Case of the
Original Airdate: 04/24/66
I was under the impression that since William Talman's arrest in 1960 that he would no longer be credited for episodes he did not appear in. Unless his part was cut out of the syndicated version of this episode, he did not appear but was credited. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 6/26/12.
+. I just watched the unedited print off of Season 9, Volume 2. William Talman does not appear, but is credited. Submitted by Bill-W2XOY on 08/28/13.
The scene of Perry & Paul in the Records office being helped by Lt. Drumm is interesting in the sense that Perry lights Lt. Drumm's cigarette while an "American Cancer Society" sign is featured prominently in the background. Submitted by Kenmore 11/4/2012
The placement is so obvious that it would have to be intentional. William Talman did an anti-smoking commercial that aired after his death but according the Internet it was not diagnosed until September 1967 so no connection. Perry Baby 1/30/14 I was very proud of the woman in this scene who stood up for herself and told the police detective that her name was "Millicent" NOT "Honey"! So why in the credits is she just described as "Woman Clerk"! Not fair! Submitted by Welshwoman 03/16/15
+ The connection may have been to the death of Ray Collins, who had died from emphysema not long before this episode was shot. Submitted by francis, 5/6/14.
++ Ray Bidwell Collins was Born December 10, 1889 in Sacramento & Died July 11, 1965 in Santa Monica [IMDb]. Mike Bedard 3.13.15
Perry's Dilemma in Misguided Model is similar to the one in Capering Camera; "Misguided" was used in another of the 12 MM episodes: Misguided Missile; "Model" appeared in another title: Reluctant Model. Mike Bedard 3.16.15.
