+ My family used to own exactly such a "1957 Ford Ranch Wagon 2dr, medium & white color." It was a very classy turquoise and white. We bought it used around 1960 and had it for about two years, until it was smashed up on the driver's side when some fool tried to change lanes on the Golden Gate Bridge going North. My step-father was not hurt, but he didn't like the way it crumpled so easily compared to our previous car, a tank of a 1951 Hudson Hornet, so he junked the Ford and bought the first brand-new car we ever had, a horrendously ugly 1963 GMC Suburban, all white.

Loretta Harper has the same barometer in her apartment that hangs on the wall of Wilfred Borden’s living room. Submitted by PaulDrake33, 7/29/2008.
+ This is the "Banjo Barometer," and from now on it becomes a favoured wall-hung prop in one home after another. Submitted by catyron, January 7th, 2021.
Sightings: During the first part of the hearing Little Old Lady in A Hat sits behind Perry Mason and appears in many shots. Distinguished Gentleman #1, and Quiet Old Man #1 are on the prosecutor’s side. Submitted by gracenote, 5/23/2011.
+ We can see the all three clustered together among the courtroom audience after the hearing reconvenes. DG#1 is wearing glasses, and at one point the Lady whispers with him. More about them on this page. Originally submitted by gracenote, 8/28/2010; updated 5/23/2011.
+ “Miss Carmody” is seated just behind Perry next to the aisle. Submitted by alan_sings, 9 Oct 2010.
Little Old Lady #2 is visible during the first part of the hearing, in the front row. During the second part, she is in the back row next to Little Old Lady #1, who has magically teleported from the other side of the courtroom (see above). Submitted by gracenote, 5/23/2011.
Locations: Early in the episode, we see Loretta Harper going into the "Dorman Apartments on Rossmore". The building is actually the old Executive Building at 20th-Century Fox Studios in Beverly Hills. Submitted by S. Stuart 11/21/18
Goof: While Dennison (the hardware store owner from which the gun was stolen a year ago) is testifying, he is also seated behind Frank Fettridge in a closeup of the courtroom gallery. Only the corner of his glasses is visible in this shot, but his seating location is confirmed in other gallery views later on. Submitted by alan_sings, 9 Oct 2010.
The only time I recall hearing the voices on the other end of the line when Della calls Perry at his apartment. Joe B. 12/15/20.
Della is on the witness stand for the third time. (earlier in episodes 8,30). This time she is questioned by Perry. Burger had no questions. (she would later be put on the stand in episodes 160,162,172,187). Submitted by H. Mason 9/25/14
This is the only PM appearance for Dolores Donlon (Dawn Manning). She was Playboy's Playmate of the Month in August 1957...MikeM. 10.4/2016
+ A chorus of voices all claim Ms. Donlon was born in 1920, which would have made her Playboy appearance at age 37 (and her age here almost 40!) A more plausible date is 1926...methinks she still had a youthful appearance. Notcom, 122420.
This is the first of two PM appearances for Kasey Rogers (Loretta Harper), who had recurring roles in "Peyton Place" and "Bewitched"...MikeM. 10/24/2017
This is the first of three PM appearances for John Anderson (George Andrews) who was memorable as Capt. 'Skipper' Farver in the 1961 Twilight Zone episode, "The Odyssey of Flight 33". John Anderson passed in 1992 at the age of 69...MikeM. 7/16/2018
