    • In 1997, TV Guide ranked this episode #51 on their list of the "100 Greatest TV Episodes of All Time."

    • This episode for many years was not included in the syndication package and wasn't aired again until 1988, 25 years after it first ran.

    • This is one of the two episodes in which Perry loses the case and the jury declares his client guilty. The other is #38 The Case of the Terrified Typist.

    Trivia (1)

    • This was the only case in which Mason's client was found guilty, and sentenced to death. The outcry from the public was so severe that they never ventured down this road again.
