Die Hard Connection - Fans of the "Die Hard" movies will remember James Shigeta (Ward Toyama) as Mr Takagi in the first "Die Hard" film. He was the CEO of the Nakatomi Corporation and John McClaine's wife's boss. He also hosted the Christmas party that was crashed by both Bruce Willis and the German terrorist group. Takagi met a brutal end at the hands of Hans Gruber when he refused to give up the vault code and was shot in the head. Submitted by DellaMason

James Shigeta (Ward Toyama) and Nobu McCarthy (Sally Choshi) also appear together, with Jack Lord, in a film entitled Walk Like a Dragon. It’s a rather rarely seen film; at least, I haven’t seen it broadcast on network for over 30 plus years or ever on cable! It’s set in the American West…but it is not a typical Western!

+ "Walk Like A Dragon" is in the Turner Classic Movie collection. Their website may indicate when it will next be shown on TCM...MikeM. 7/13/2018

Uncredited Actors: This espiode has two of them. Chuck Hamilton, who played a postal inspector in TCOT Posthumous Painter, appears briefly as a guest at Perry Mason’s lecture at the criminal law symposium, and later as an observer in the courtroom. The other is Arthur Tovey, once dubbed the King of Extras, who also plays a lecture guest and a courtroom spectator. In 1984 People magazine wrote an article on this “best-known unknown.” Submitted by gracenote, 5/5/2011.

Sightings: Our “Miss Carmody” sits behind Toyama at Perry’s lecture; a true fan, later she watches Perry at the evidentiary hearing. Submitted by gracenote, 5/5/2011.
+ It looks to me also that Miss Carmody had a new job as stenographer during the Habeus Corpus hearing on board the ship. Submitted by Clothears 9/9/20.

For the penultimate time this season, Ray Collins receives billing as Lt. Tragg, but makes no appearance. Submitted by gracenote, 5/6/2011.

The syndicated version of this episode, or at least the one the local station showed recently, had a bottle of Prell Shampoo displayed in the closing credits, Usually the sponsor's products are removed from reruns. Submitted by Wiseguy70005, 6/17/12.
+ In the butchered syndicated version which I just saw on MeTV, that little bottle of Prell was on screen for longer than Nobu McCarthy, which is a shame, since the former Miss Tokyo was seriously gorgeous. Submitted by 65tosspowertrap, 1-22-2014.
++ I much agree with 65tosspowertrap, above. I knew a girl in high school who looked a lot like the lovely Miss McCarthy...yes, I had a crush on her, and yes, she knew about it! Submitted by MikeReese, 6/14/2017.
+++ I just saw MeTV too and I do not think I’ve ever noticed any sponsored items there before, but saw this and noticed you already commented! I will pay more attention when I read the info from THIS great website! ;-> submitted by mesave31, 02/05/15

Philip Abbott played Assistant Director Arthur Ward in "The FBI" from 1965-74 [241 episodes: IMDb]. Mike Bedard 5.26.16.

No B-Flats, but High Seas Bobby Troup makes his third and final appearance here, notable - as it were - for his not portraying a musician. Punned by Notcom, 052716.
+ I imagine many people knew him best from his starring role as Dr. Joe Early on the 1972-1978 series Emergency!, where he played opposite, among others, his wife Julie London, who was a singer. They met when he produced her hit song Cry Me A River in the late '50s. OLEF641 8/27/21
