William Tracy makes the final of 3 appearances on Perry here playing a tangential role of the photographer. William Tracy was probably best known for his role as Pepi Katona in the wonderful Ernst Lubisch film The Shop Around The Corner. Sadly this would be Mr. Tracy’s final appearance in either TV or film as he would die much too young at the age of 49 in 1967. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 19 August 2009.
Goof: The sign outside the public house unmistakably reads “Red’s ,” but everyone in the episode calls it “Red’s .” Submitted by gracenote, 3/29/2011.
+ Just after the opening credits (46 seconds into episode, 2012 Paramount DVD), the sign is: RED'S REEF [with "REEF" in smaller letters]
BAR AND GRILL
I suspect that a syndication print on a TV screen can make such signage difficult to read. Submitted by masonite, 12/10/12.
++ The photograph Margaret picks up off the floor at the murder scene shows Susan in the custody of the police officer outside RED'S REEF. jfh 24Jan2017.
RED'S REEF BAR AND GRILL: was the site of the murder in episode 207 TCOT Antic Angel, with the victim getting killed in the parking lot. Added by H. Mason 4/5/15
Sightings: Through the doorway of Randolph Cartwell’s office we spy “Miss Carmody” as (presumably) his secretary. At the hearing, we find Quiet Old Man #1 has made the field trip to see Perry in action. That might be Distinguished Gentleman #1 as a cheerful pub customer in the opening scene, but it is definitely he as a nameless campaign worker at the end. Submitted by gracenote, 3/29/2011.
Another TR! The "small foreign-built car" with which Margaret dings Rufus Findley's danged truck while she's fleeing "David's house on the Cartwell Estate" is a TRIUMPH TR4 (produced 1961-65). The car has the optional "Surrey Top", a hardtop with a removable central section over the seats (more info here). TR4 was the world's first production car to have such a roof system. The idea was later used by other manufacturers and became more commonly known as a Targa Top.
The appearance of a current-production TR in this episode is curious:
It seems to me that someone at CBS/Paisano might have had a preference for TRs over Mustangs! Added by Gary Woloski, 1/10/12.
Uncredited Actors: Parading down the street and cheering with lots of fellow Foster supporters is Don Anderson, who later turns up to watch Perry defeat yet another prosecutor. Robert Wegner, great uncle of a wiki participant, is also there to see Perry triumph, and at least one session he is sitting in front of Anderson. Submitted by gracenote, 3/29/2011.
Job Transfer: Actor Charles Stroud appeared as Court Clerk in ten previous stories, all set in Los Angeles. This time he did the job outside of the city. Submitted by H. Mason 4/5/15
Location: The house used for the Foster Campaign Headquarters was part of the Manzana Valley Prep School in episode 186 TCOT Decadent Dean. Submitted by H. Mason 4/5/15
