Recognize the hats worn by Mrs. Stallman? You should. They were also in #204, TCOT Woeful Widower. The rickrack number is also seen in #256, TCOT Bogus Buccaneers. Submitted by Karrin Kain, 2/14/05.

It appears that the portrait of Jamison Selff seen in this episode also appears in #227, TCOT Thermal Thief, as Dion. From Tom Stillman via the Perry_Mason Yahoo! group, posted by daveb, 11/14/09.

Anomaly: Are Barney Biro and Frank Biro the same actor? One of the judges in this episode is credited (for the first time) as Frank Biro, who will also portray a judge in one subsequent episode. He looks exactly like Barney Biro who portrayed a judge in five previous episodes. IMDb shows listings for both names, but strangely enough, Barney Biro's filmography covers the years 1953-64, while Frank Biro's runs 1965-1990. Barney Biro's birth/death dates are given as 1914-1993. Frank Biro's dates are not given. I suspect these are alternate names for the same actor, and only one IMDb listing should have been created.

I noticed that as well when this episode played on MeTV yesterday and had exactly the same feelings. While this may be two men who are brothers, I suspect you are correct. Over the years other actors have appeared with slightly differing names. Barry Atwater has also been billed as G. B. Atwater. And Willis Bouchey who also appeared as a judge was billed as both Willis Bouchey and Willis B. Bouchey, and when appearing on The Andy Griffith Show he was always billed as C. Willis Bouchey.

Gene Lyons would appear as Commissioner Dennis Randall on Raymond Burr's next series Ironside from the pilot movie in 1967 until his death in 1974. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 6/16/12.
+Gene also appeared in 3 "FBI"s & a Star Trek: "A Taste of Armageddon," as Federation Ambassador Fox [IMDb]. Mike Bedard 2.18.15.

Jeanne Bal makes the last of her four appearances on Perry Mason. Perry Baby 11/17/13

Incorrect Summary: The Summary incorrectly says that Louise Selff was tried twice. The court proceding we see at the beginning of the episode is a preliminary hearing, not a trial. The judge dismissed the charge because of insufficient evidence. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 2/18/2014.
+The 5th Amendment states: "Nor shall any person be subject for the Same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb ["Double Jeopardy" Clause]." Mike Bedard 2.18.15.

This is the second of two PM appearances for Marion Moses, who married a congressman who was a friend of John Wayne. A son from her first marriage, William R. Moses, played "Ken Malansky" on the Perry Mason television movies...MikeM. 3/16/2017

Libel case for Perry. The headline in the newspaper thrown in the trash after Louise Selff's preliminary hearing where the case is thrown out is "SELFF HEARING TODAY". The caption under Louise Selff's photograph is "HUSBAND SLAYER". Submitted by Kilo 1/25/2018.

This is the first of two PM writing credits for Henry Farrell, who is best known for his novel "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"...MikeM. 3/22/2018
