Joe di Reda appears here as Phil Edwards. Mr. di Reda should not be confused with Joe DeRita who played the part of Curly Joe in the Three Stooges movies of the 1960s. Mr. di Reda was much younger. Submitted by PaulDrake 33, 3 September 2009.
This is the first of three appearances by Jeff York, who turns in a rather “angry” performance (though that’s what the character calls for). Submitted by Kenmore, 12/14/2009.
++ I think it's worth noting that Joe di Reda puts in a superb acting job as the neurotic Phil Edwards. Submitted by Tragg, March 17th, 2023.
Mason was pretty rough on Phil Edwards on the stand, dredging up his poor military record and all. Not that circumstances didn't call for it... JohnK, 9 October 2015.
The direction, especially in the first half, is self-consciously arty, almost to the point of distraction. So many extreme closeups, odd angles, and traveling shots. DOD 09/27/18
A year before this episode Suzanne Lloyd appeared in the classic The Twilight Zone episode "Perchance to Dream" as Maya, the carnival-dancing Cat Girl. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 9/6/14.
Another episode in which Della wears her monogrammed dress! Ed Zoerner, 5/22/2010.
This is yet another episode where the way they handle violence against women is terrible and perplexing. Sheila Benton comes staggering in, claiming her husband has beat her. She seems to be believed, but no one takes her to the hospital or gets a statement. Instead, the cop rushes her back to her husband! Submitted by gracep, 11/12/2010.
Not just that - Miriam, a single woman, was blackmailed with proof of her affair with a married man. Shouldn't it be the married man who is vulnerable to blackmail? Seems to be the old double standard at work. DOD 09/27/18
I don't think that Mort Mills gets enough credit for the fine job he does in his several episodes as Sgt. Landro. Plus, he has a great voice! Ed Zoerner, 1/18/14
+ Every time I hear Landro say, "Laboratory tests show..." and "Laboratory tests prove..." I think I'm listening to one of those commercials from the 60s ;-) . Submitted by Arisia 03/15/18
+ The year before, Mills was the highway patrol officer in Alfred Hitchcock's "Psycho". Submitted by vgy7ujm 10/06/21
Finish the job: At the end of the show the conversation seemed to indicate the construction project was going to continue. Would it still be called the Bentonville Park Estates, named after a murdered con man, or would they change it? Submitted by H. Mason 11/8/14
Deja View Estates might be a good name if - as H. Mason suggests (above) - the development is renamed, since the plot device (of a contractor being ruined by fraud) was used only seven episodes back. It seems curious that, so early in the series history, the writers would recycle parts of a storyline...or more precisely it seems sloppy that they would place them so close together; admittedly watching in syndication can place episodes a few nights apart that in reality were separated by 8-9 months, but here the original air dates were separated by a matter of weeks.

When Sgt. Landro drives Sheila back to the construction trailer to find her husband Landro drives into the curb hitting his bumper with a clunk. Kilo 12/19/2019.
