Paul Winchell certainly toned down his distinctive voice for this episode. Usually it’s a little more exaggerated, a bit throatier and gruffer you might say, as in the Scrubbing Bubbles commercials of the 1970s and ’80s. Submitted by gracenote, 3/10/2011.
+He played a children's show host in "Talk to the Snail": The Dick Van Dyke Show, 1966 [IMDb]. Mike Bedard 3.17.15.
One of the sweeter endings to an episode, with Paul dancing. And, earlier in the episode, Hamilton sounded to me particularly noble. Outside of court, he was questioning Perry's client, with Perry present, and goaded the client into making some intemperate remarks. Hamilton then responded with, "I suggest you be a little less concerned with what *you* want to do, and a little more concerned with what your attorney tells you you *ought* to do." And all's well...

+ I liked Burger's and Mason's good cop/bad cop routine in that scene. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 12/5/2013.

So where does the nervous neighbor come in?
I am glad to see that the Los Angeles Authority, Public Housing Administration, provides a clean and attractive environment for the Valley Gardens Senior Citizens Facility. However, Sheila Bromley is actually only 52 if IMDb is correct. Further she addresses Francis X. Bushman's character as, "And at 73, you are an incorrigible flirt, Philip!" Per IMDb, Bushman was actually 80. lowercase masonite, 3/29/16.
Pilot?: Anyone else think this story seemed like a tryout for a possible Paul Drake spinoff show? Submitted by H. Mason 3/15/15
Order, order once again the show summary leaves something to be desired: Alice killed her husband as a result of hitting her head - or at least the latter facilitated the former - not, as the summary suggests, was the fall an outcome of the homicide. Nit-picked by Notcom, 060619.
What's up with Mary Browne wearing a ring over her gloves? She does this both in the courtroom and in Perry's office. Otto Gervaert, 2/17/21
