Phone Numbers: Joe Kelly wants to make a call from Paul’s car phone. Paul picks up the phone and dials the operator. Joe gives him the number: 271-2399. Paul repeets the number into the phone then exclaims “That’s Perry’s number!” Submitted by daveb, 11/23/2010.
+ Apparently Perry's number has changed over the years. It used to be MAdison 5-1196. alan_sings 12/6/2012.
+ Perry's number didn't change, the MAdison 5-1196 number was last mentioned in episode 229. He probably had more than one phone number at his suite. In episode 17 TCOT Sunbather's Diary (the first time the above number was given for Perry) Mr. Mason called his office from a pool hall pay phone and the last two numbers he dialed were one - one. Another number for Perry's office will be given in episode 244 (555-3549). Added by H. Mason 4/10/15
++ Perry gave his UNLISTED number to a witness who tore the card up (Demure Defendant). Mike Bedard 4.14.15
Uncredited Actors / Sightings: The health inspector interviewing a bedridden man in the hospital is none other than Don Anderson. Next he interviews a man in his hospital bed and then another man sick in bed at home—a man who happens to be Distinguished Gentleman #1! Submitted by gracenote, 4/8/2011.
+ In the courtroom gallery, Quiet Old Man #1 has ensconced himself up front for a good view of the proceedings. On the prosecutor’s side sits a rather indistinct but keenly interested Pencil Mustache Man, while tucked away in the back of the defense side is the Little Old Lady in a Hat. And luckily, Distinguished Gentleman #1 got over his amebic dysentery in time to observe the hearing. Submitted by gracenote, 4/9/2011.
Although credited in the the available syndication print, Ray Collins (Lt. Tragg) does not appear, again because of his illness. And of course, as the Summary indicates, neither does Raymond Burr (Perry Mason). Submitted by gracenote, 4/8/2011.
Location: The porch of a house with the address of 1423 serves double duty. It's used for a scene here as well as a scene in “TCOT Two-Faced Turn-A-bout.” I don't know what street this was but the 1400 block would be just a few blocks north of the studio in Hollywood so it wasn’t far. Submitted by Eric Cooper, 28 April 2011.
Location: Speaking of double duty with locations, here is another one. The house the rich old lady lives in is the same house as the two sisters in “TCOT Nebulous Nephew.” Maybe it’s a timeshare. Also on the nighttime scenes the porch light is in exactly the same place. The house is probably in Hancock Park which is again close to the studio. Submitted by Eric Cooper 28 April 2011.
+ The porch also appears 37 minutes into “TCOT Bluffing Blast.” Submitted by Eric Cooper, 9 June 11.
Location: I found the house! It’s at 357 Lorraine Blvd in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles. It was originally built in 1898 for Issac Newton Van Nuys who developed much of the San Fernando Valley. The house is about 12,000 sq ft and looks exactly the same. Even has the same unique porch light after 50 years. Submitted by Eric Cooper, 6 June 2011. Pictures here.
