Anomaly: Edgar Buchanan is listed as Judge Edward Daley but the sign on his office window spells his name as Daily. [Mitch English]
+ Additionally, Mrs. Wardman addresses the Second Girl as Agnes, but she is not listed as such in the credits. Submitted by gracenote, 7/23/2011.

Thomas Lowell makes his first of two appearances on Perry here playing Bobby Slater. (His second was Episode #208, TCOT Careless Kidnapper, as David Pelham.) Thomas Lowell was born in 1941 with the birth name of Lowell Thomas. But of course once he became an actor, he would not use the same name as the famous newsman. Thomas Lowell had a minor career, his most famous role being Billy Nelson in the 60s action series Combat. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 2 September 2009.
+ Thomas Lowell played Private Bobby Lembeck in The Manchurian Candidate (1962) jfh 03Dec2018

Uncredited Actors: The schoolboard meeting seems to have been shot in an actual school gym with the spectators seated in real school-type folding chairs. Among the townspeople, both Don Anderson and Lee Miller can be seen. It was rare for Anderson to appear in episodes outside of Los Angeles. By this time Miller should have been recognizable as Sgt. Brice, and his presence must have been somewhat jarring to regular viewers. Submitted by FredK, 3 Nov 2010. - It also appears that the Distinguished Gentleman #1 is present in the gym during the meeting. His back is to the camera, but his distinctive "toupee" is pretty apparent. Submitted by Kenmore 1/04/2012

CARS. (1) Jane Wardman's white 1962 Mercury Meteor 4-Door Sedan, Lic No XCH 325.

Although credited, Barbara Hale does not appear as Della Street in this episode, and neither does Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg. William Talman neither received credit nor appeared. Submitted by gracep, 1/15/2011.
+ LL was the 5th of Della's 11 absences. Barbara graduated from Rockford, IL HS in 1940 {IMDb]. Mike Bedard 3.18.15

Perry's Client: Perry did not have to defend Mrs. Wardman in a murder case. This was the third episode without court (episodes 6 and 14). Submitted by H. Mason 12/31/14
+While Perry did not defend his client against a murder charge, he did solve one death (probably manslaughter) and one murder.

The Gavel: Judge Daley used a gavel at the school board meeting. The first time a gavel was seen and used since episode 80. Submitted by H. Mason 12/31/14

Location of Placer (Plasser / Place-Er) Hill? On first usage, the name of the fictitious town of Placer HIll is correctly pronounced Plasser Hill, as in Placerville (a real California town), but later pronounced Place-Er Hill (as in Win, Show, and Place). More to the point -- where was this episode filmed? And who got the bright idea that a town with a Gold Rush name like Placer Hill would be next to "Cactus County"? Submitted by catyron, 04/26.18

Stunt Double: When Jane Wardman and her son Terry are being chased in their car by Pat Mangan and the motorcycle gang a zoom of the DVD reveals that the driver is a man in a wig. The boy looks like he could still be actor Mark Murray. Submitted by Kilo 8/5/2018.
