Perry's longish dramatic scene in the cellar trying to convince Felix to surrender was quite unusual for the series. You do not see this softer compassionate side of Perry much in the series. Submitted by Perry Baby 3/6/15. The word soliloquy comes to mind. Joe B. 12/16/20
The dramatic lighting in this scene is quite impressive. DOD 08/03/19
Sightings: Pencil Mustache Man makes another appearance in the far corner of the courtroom gallery, defendant’s side. When the hearing reconvenes after recess, our man reappears on the prosecutor’s side, second row. Both times he seems keenly interested in the proceedings. Oh, and then in a quick shot as Mr. Wormser is about to be re-crossed, we spy Distinguished Gentleman #1 back in the shadows of the defendant’s side. Lastly, Quiet Old Man can be seen to mutter with surprise when the killer is revealed! Submitted by gracep, 9/3/2010.
+ “Miss Carmody” is visible in the gallery just over Burger’s shoulder at the beginning of the courtroom scene. Submitted by alan_sings, 3 Oct 2010.
+ The rarely seen Distinguished Lady #3 is seated almost directly behind Perry. Read more about all these favorite frequent faces.
Jacques Aubuchon (Felix Karr) makes the first of four appearances on PM. His Cuban cigars were still legal in 1959. Submitted by MikeM, 11/07/2012
The door: When Felix Karr visited Perry's office he didn't shut the door when he entered. It was closed when he approached it to leave. Submitted by H. Mason 10/21/14
+ Maybe Gertie pulled closed from outside? ;-). OLEF641; 10/30/2017.
Jonathan Hole as Wormser makes another appearance as unsavory and overly nervous character and involved in the crime. Submitted by Perry Baby 3/6/15.
+And, just as in Episode #26 (TCOT Half-Wakened Wife), Jonathan Hole again pulls out a handkerchief to wipe the perspiration off his face as he is broken down on the witness stand by Perry. Submitted by BobH, 4 July 2016.
