In the final scene, at the Shimada Gardens, we can see sushi on a serving platter, which was pretty unusual for the time period. Submitted by catyron, July 31st, 2018
+ At about 35 minutes in, as he is cross-examining Dr. Tachikawa, Perry mentions that the meeting with Rhonda Coleridge took place at the Sashimi Gardens; the final scene is obviously there as well. For those of you not familiar with Japanese cuisine, sashimi is chilled slices of exquisitely fresh fish, served artfully arranged. It is not to be confused with sushi, which is various pieces of bite-sized foods (including, but not exclusively, raw fish) served in conjunction with vinegared rice in rolls, bite-sized pieces (nigiri), and other less well-known forms: sushi literally translates as "sour-tasting".

Tryon's $20 million suit against Coleridge Associates would be for nearly $175 million today (2021).
Dr. Tachikawa's "parcel in the Hollywood Hills" cost $70,000, which would be a little over $600,000. Not so out-of-line with today's prices -- for a vacant lot. Houses for sale there today have an average asking price of around $2.25 million.
Tachikawa is the name of an airbase in Japan; my Dad worked there as a civilian tech in the early '50's when it was being operated by the US Armed Forces. OLEF641 9/17/21
