Trivia Edit

Oddly when Bob Lansing is walking from the barber shop to the hotel the back of his pants are wet. How did the actor’s pants get wet during filming? They only had one pair of pants he could wear? Submitted by Craig, 5/1/10. [Picture that was included here no longer working 7/18/10.]
+ We see a brief flash of Lansing’s backside when he first exits the car in front of the barber shop and the “wet spot” is there. He’s been traveling/fishing/etc. and given the general filthiness of his clothes that may be a reasonable explanation. I’d rather not delve into any other reason as to why a “wet spot” is there...Submitted by Kenmore 7/18/10

Uncredited Actors: Frequent appearer Robert Wegner plays a deliveryman, wearing a leather jacket. (Perhaps he is delivering lunch, as there is a brown paper bag in his hands.) We see him hand the secretary a clipboard to sign as Perry Mason leaves Tom Quincy with food for thought. Read more about uncredited actors here. Submitted by gracep, 10/7/2010.

Sightings: Looks like some favorite faces took a field trip from Los Angeles to Outcast, CA, to watch the hearing today. In the gallery we see Distinguished Gentleman #1, Cute Young Lady. Read more about our faithful courtroom spectators here. Submitted by gracep, 10/7/2010.

Location: Perry Mason and Della Street enter the County Courthouse in Outcast, CA, one of the courthouses of lesser repute here. Submitted by gracep 10/7/2010.

+ Did you spot this, Gen-Xers? The man playing Quincy is none other than Denver Pyle, better known to you as Bo & Luke Duke’s Uncle Jesse in the original Dukes of Hazard. Hard to see without his beard! Submitted by gracep 10/8/2010.
+ And Boomers will remember him as Briscoe Darling, the jug-playing head of the hillbilly musical family on the "Andy Griffith Show." Submitted by francis, 3/19/12.

CARS. (1) 1955 Ford Fairlane Sunliner V8 convertible, Bob Lansing, med color, top down, Nevada Lic No 5J8 752.

The Ranchero, Car(3) has absolutely nothing to do with the story or any character, yet it is so conspicuous that it's a distraction (Hey, Look at that nifty half-car half-truck!): an intrusive but entertaining Product Placement! Added by Gary Woloski, 7/11/12.

Perry's property: In the first scene when Bob drove into town and later when Perry and Della arrived in Outcast look in the background and you can see the apartment house Perry bought in episode 44 TCOT Curious Bride. Submitted by H. Mason 10/30/14

Circuit Court ?? Willis Bouchey, who appears here as the judge, was also the judge in Fawnskin, (just) 13 episodes back; Fawnskin, Outcast...a dilligent viewer should be able to construct a map of this Judicial District's boundaries (a task that will be either very easy or very difficult, considering the many fictitious locations !!) Submitted by Notcom, 110415.

According to Wikipedia, Jeremy Slate had a very interesting life before becoming an actor. He may have started his professional acting in Lima, Peru...MikeM. 8/8/2016

This is the only PM appearance for Marilyn Eastman, who was in George Romero's Night Of The Living Dead...MikeM. 11/15/2016

Comments Edit

The defendant, "Bob Lansing," seems friendly enough, but agreeing to share a motel room with a creepy stranger seems a bit of a stretch. (And one hopes there was a cot somewhere, because there appeared to be only one bed.) Submitted by francis, 3/19/12.

Walter Burke, whom we last spotted as Frankie Laine's diminutive flunky in TCOT Jaded Joker, has gone up in the world -- here as rural DA James Blackburn. Submitted by francis, 3/19/12

Murder weapons: You usually wouldn't think of a bookend as a murder weapon, but through 93 stories it was used three times (also in 46 & 55). That's the same number of times a fireplace poker was used (episodes 12, 44 and the second murder in 72...in #82 the victim was only stunned with the poker then killed with a decanter). Submitted by H. Mason 10/30/14
