Dee Hartford plays a sexy but scheming attorney is this, her first of three episodes. She also played "Miss Iceland" in 2 episodes of Batman, wore a silver miniskirt, boots, and android makeup as Verda in 3 episodes of Lost In Space, and played Helen Of Troy in an episode of Time Tunnel. In the summary at the end of this episode, the cast raves about her sex appeal, causing Perry and Della to quote Proverbs 1:10: "My son, if sinners entice thee, consent thou not."

They are obviously not real, and used earlier in this same season in one of the out-of-town courtrooms. (A viewer savvier than myself would be able to say which episode.) St. James 323, 9/13/21.
