Goof: In an office scene near midway, Perry reads a newspaper, whose headline “Ranch Foremen Held in Beauty’s Death,” magically changes when he hands the paper to his client. See here. Submitted by Christopher Graul, 5/27/2005.
+That paper came from episode 106 TCOT Red Riding Boots. Lt. Anderson held the same paper in Della's office before it changed to the paper that seemed to say "CAMERA STORE OWNER MURDERED". The paper with Maureen's photo was never fully visible, but it seemed to have been made specifically for this episode. Added by H. Mason 1/8/15

Dorris Packer makes her only appearance on Perry here playing Mrs. Campion. Dorris Packer was known as the principal, Mrs. Rayburn, of the grammar school that Beaver Cleaver attended. She was also the mother of Chatworth Osborne on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis. Submitted by PaulDrake33, 9 September 2009.

Eilene Janssen makes her only appearance on Perry in this episode as Maureen Franklin. Eilene Janssen was a prolific child actress, beginning at the age of 2. Ms. Janssen had the distinction of appearing in the very first televised episode of the long running favorite "Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet". Unfortunately, she did not find acting success in her adult years, retiring at the age of 25 shortly after this appearance. Submitted by PaulDrake33, 18 September 2014.

Location: This episode features the Burbank Airport about 5 minutes in and you can see the exterior of the terminal and parking lot. I confirmed this with Les Copeland, president, of the Burbank Aviation Museum. Burbank Airport is now called Bob Hope Airport and has a slightly different facade. It is also featured in episodes #39, #99, #165, #220 and #258. Posted by Eric Cooper, 25 May 2010. Some pictures here.
+ I've confirmed by the positions of cars and people that this shot, at 3:35-3:40, is the last five seconds of the nine-second panning-shot which opens Ep#99. Two vehicles of interest are seen in this 5 secs:

"LOCKHEED AIR TERMINAL", the airport's official name from 1940 to 1967, is written over the passenger entrance doorway. Added by Gary Woloski, 7/6/13.

Burt Metcalfe would go on to produce M*A*S*H. Submitted by gracep, 1/20/2011.

Lt. Tragg, played by Ray Collins, appears in the credits only. Submitted by gracep, 1/20/2011.

Sightings: A few favorite faces turn up in the courtroom today. Pencil Mustache Man lurks in the shadows in cutaways to the defendant. Distinguished Gentleman #1 peers over other spectators from the second row. Lastly, after a long absence and with a little more makeup than usual, Distinguished Lady #1 makes an appearance behind Mrs. Fernaldi. More here. Submitted by gracep, 1/20/2011.

CARS. In the opening shot Burt Renshaw arrives at BOLTON HALL in his

At 6:11 "Pop" Thomas visits Renshaw's "PROJECTO CAMERAS" shop. A light-colored convertible, with white top up, can be seen through the storefront window parked on the street. The Right Front corner has a very unusual profile. What is this mystery car? Added by Gary Woloski, 7/6/13.
+ The 'mystery car' is probably a 1962 Dodge Dart 440 Convertible. LouV 2/25/17.
+ Thanks Lou!!! I think you've got it! It seems obvious now that a shape like that HAD to be from Chrysler Corp. See Right-Front profiles here & here, top up here. Gary Woloski, 2/28/17.
