Anomaly: Bert Freed, listed as Parker, is really Parker. Posted by daveb, 12/20/2007.
Continuity Error: A bit of a blooper happens after Perry ticks off Sheila Barton on the stand. When we see Perry talk to Pete Mallory (York) about “blackmail” at his table, the wide shot showing Perry’s face reveals that York’s hair is parted, yet on the “reverse angle” York’s hair is combed straight back. Clearly both shots happened on different days. Posted by Kenmore, 12/14/2009.
Holy triple play! This makes the third appearance of 1960s Batman’s Commissioner Gordon—I mean Neil Hamilton. Submitted by gracep, 11/12/2010.
+...and isn't it interesting that this episode originally aired following TCOT the Bare-Faced Witness, in which Batman (Adam West) appeared. Submitted by Fifty-Niner on 13 July 2011.
Sightings: The Little Old Lady in a Hat and Quiet Old Man #2 sit in the back row of the courtroom gallery on the prosecution’s side. Distinguished Gentleman #1 and “Miss Carmody” both appear on the defense’s side. Read more about these favorite frequent faces and help us find more! Submitted by gracep 11/12/2010.
+ Quiet Old Man #1 can be seen briefly in a few shots seated on the other side of the Little Old Lady in a Hat in the back row. Submitted by daveb, 11/12/2010.
++ “Miss Carmody” looks unusually fetching even though she's a bit blurry (or maybe because she's a bit blurry!). Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 9/27/2013.
+++ "Little Old Lady #2, looking very up-to-date and chic with a bob and a stylish jacket, can be seen behind Miriam Ames in cutaways as Perry questions Mr. Ames. Submitted by JazzBaby, 9/8/2019.
++++ Maybe the wardrobe department and Annabelle had extra time on their hands, because “Miss Carmody” and "Little Old Lady #2 look all dolled up, and Miss Carmody's hair is lovely.
Character Names: Mr. Ames’ first name is Jim. Submitted by gracenote, 7/8/2011.

*Which has a continuity error. When Perry leans over to give Della her instructions, she is in the passenger seat as Perry was the driver originally. When camera angle changes and Perry stands up, Della drives off as the driver. She apparently slid over in an instant to the drivers side without having to adjust her skirt.

Telephone Number: The phone number (DU 2-0799) written on the phony survey map was used to call Eve Nesbitt's apartment in episode 113 TCOT Angry Dead Man. Submitted by H. Mason 11/8/14
Continuity Error: Perry is questioning Sheila Barton in her room. In an establishing wide shot, Perry is seated to our left, Sheila to our right and to her right is a representational painting of a horse, with curly mane flowing down towards our left side of the painting. Later, in two close-up shots of her profile still facing Perry off-screen to our left, Sheila stands and is framed against the painting. However, the horse's mane is seen flowing down the opposite side of the painting. In the following scenes after each close-up, the horse's mane flips back to its the original side. Posted by David E. Hurst, 3/30/2013.
+ Not an Error: There are actually two paintings, one the reverse of the other. One is on the wall above a dresser or desk (left mane) with statues on either side. The other painting (right mane) is above the headboard of the bed. We can see the corner of the frame and a line that goes down the wall to the left of the painting in close-ups as she sits on the bed. When she stands up we see the full painting with no statues and the same line that goes down the wall on the left of the painting. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 9/6/14.
+ This is almost certainly the same set used for Marta Wiltern’s motel room in the previous episode, #115 TCOT Barefaced Witness. The drapes and the pictures on the walls have been changed, but the small light fixture on the wall, the television set, the window and window blinds, and the dresser are all identical. Added by Dan K, 23 February 2020.
Continuity: In the scene where Sheila Benton has a suitcase and is getting into her car the rear window is closed. However, when Perry sticks his head in to speak with her he puts his hand through the rear window. As she drives off the window is closed again. Submitted by Kilo 8/27/2017.

This is the first of three Perry appearances for Jason Evers, who starred the very next year in the cult classic movie "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" alongside Virginia Leith (Jan-In-The-Pan). Love that movie. jfh 09Nov2021
Launer Daily Double last night the orbits aligned again and permitted 90' of S. John Launer; unlike the earlier instance I thought he gave a strong performance in his Twilight Zone appearance (as a thug...his authoritarian manner convincingly conveying a feeling of menace.) Notcom, 022220.
