Oddly when Bob Lansing is walking from the barber shop to the hotel the back of his pants are wet. How did the actor’s pants get wet during filming? They only had one pair of pants he could wear? Submitted by Craig, 5/1/10. [Picture that was included here no longer working 7/18/10.]
+ We see a brief flash of Lansing’s backside when he first exits the car in front of the barber shop and the “wet spot” is there. He’s been traveling/fishing/etc. and given the general filthiness of his clothes that may be a reasonable explanation. I’d rather not delve into any other reason as to why a “wet spot” is there...Submitted by Kenmore 7/18/10
Uncredited Actors: Frequent appearer Robert Wegner plays a deliveryman, wearing a leather jacket. (Perhaps he is delivering lunch, as there is a brown paper bag in his hands.) We see him hand the secretary a clipboard to sign as Perry Mason leaves Tom Quincy with food for thought. Read more about uncredited actors here. Submitted by gracep, 10/7/2010.
Sightings: Looks like some favorite faces took a field trip from Los Angeles to Outcast, CA, to watch the hearing today. In the gallery we see Distinguished Gentleman #1, Cute Young Lady. Read more about our faithful courtroom spectators here. Submitted by gracep, 10/7/2010.
+ Our Cute Young Lady gets rather a lot of face time in this episode. Director's favorite perhaps. JohnK, 6 October 2021
Location: Perry Mason and Della Street enter the County Courthouse in Outcast, CA, one of the courthouses of lesser repute here. Submitted by gracep 10/7/2010.
Did you spot this, Gen-Xers? The man playing Quincy is none other than Denver Pyle, better known to you as Bo & Luke Duke’s Uncle Jesse in the original Dukes of Hazard. Hard to see without his beard! Submitted by gracep 10/8/2010.
+ And Boomers will remember him as Briscoe Darling, the jug-playing head of the hillbilly musical family on the "Andy Griffith Show." Submitted by francis, 3/19/12.
Claude Stroud, from Kaufman, Texas, played many roles on TV and in the movies, including the piano player who tired of playing Liebesträume at the dinner party thrown by Margo Channing in "All About Eve", and Holly Golightly's first date, Sid Arbuck, in "Breakfast At Tiffany's". [additional trivia Claude and his identical twin, Clarence, had a vaudeville acrobatic act when they were 19, and toured the middle west and southern regions before finally travelling to New York and the Big Time, by which time the act had evolved from knockabout gymnastics to comedy crosstalk and patter.] jfh 25Sep2017.

The Ranchero, Car(3) has absolutely nothing to do with the story or any character, yet it is so conspicuous that it's a distraction (Hey, Look at that nifty half-car half-truck!): an intrusive but entertaining Product Placement! Added by Gary Woloski, 7/11/12.
Cemetery : When Bob Lansing goes to the cemetery does anyone notice the poorly painted background night sky that seems only a foot away from cemetery. Also, I find it amazing that all the grave stones are made out of wood and are in perfect condition after all that time. Submitted by BeadsOBleach 08/17/22
Perry's property: In the first scene when Bob drove into town and later when Perry and Della arrived in Outcast look in the background and you can see the apartment house Perry bought in episode 44 TCOT Curious Bride. Submitted by H. Mason 10/30/14
Circuit Court ?? Willis Bouchey, who appears here as the judge, was also the judge in Fawnskin, (just) 13 episodes back; Fawnskin, Outcast...a dilligent viewer should be able to construct a map of this Judicial District's boundaries (a task that will be either very easy or very difficult, considering the many fictitious locations !!)
