Gotta love Burger’s bow tie in this one! Submitted by Ed Zoerner, 3/18/2011.
I thought I heard Las Vegas attorney Hibberly say that the residency requirement, for filing for divorce in Nevada, was 44 days. The current requirement appears to be six weeks, or 42 days. Submitted by MikeM, 11/08/2012.
As Tragg leads Chapman away from the crashed car, it looks like the back of Chapman's jacket has straw all over it. At about the half way mark there is an establishing shot of Reno that is obviously stock footage - not a car in it much later than 1940. This is the only episode I recall with a scene in a morgue. It looks like Perry has a new lamp by that long sofa. The original lamp had a matte finish; this one is shiny. DOD 07/23/18
IMHO, especially in profile, Mary La Roche bears a striking resemblace to Joan Crawford. jfh 13Jul2017.
Person-to-City Call after receiving his divorce papers, Bruce Chapman attempts to place a call as follows "...I'd like to place a person-to-person call to Mrs. Marie Chapman. No I don't know where she's staying"(emphasis added) No problem, right... I mean: how many places could she be?? Amazed and Bemused, Notcom 080719.
Burger asks Grace Norwood questions about the argument between Bruce and Marie Chapman that only Bruce, Marie and Grace knew about. How did Burger know about the argument? Marie is dead and Bruce is the defendant. And Grace didn’t tell him or else she wouldn’t be deemed to be a hostile witness. Kilo 4/20/2021.
Hibberly seemed VERY jovial for someone who knew he'd killed a person! Brrr! Submitted by MikeReese, 9/20/2013
As usual, a few gaps in logic: If Marie and Hibberly drove to the cabin together, how did he get back to town? If they drove separately, wouldn’t Bruce have been curious about the extra car? Wouldn’t the Spragues have recognized Hibberly in court? And we never do learn why Marie was desperate for $2000. DOD 08/07/19
Question: Was Virginia Hobart charged as an accessory in the murder or just fraud? Submitted by H. Mason 10/22/14
Kudos to director Arthur Marks for his use of film noir styling in this one -- there's lots going on with mirrors and shadows. JohnK 17 November 2016
Audio changes The audio quality changes in the 3rd season. The sound almost sounds like it is in confined space (compressed, less bandwidth) compared to the airy sound of prior seasons. I listen with headphones and can easily hear the difference. Submitted by Perry Baby 1/11/18
Yes, sounds muffled to me. Submitted by Clothears 2/2/20
