Buddy Lewis is billed as "Cab Driver" in the closing credits, but actually plays the construction worker who finds Holly Howard's body.
Michael Fox is billed as "Coroner" (his usual recurring role) in this episode, but appears as an unnamed uniformed police officer at the crime scene.
The Beverly Towers Hotel, where Francesca Bel Ami is staying, is once mistakenly referred to as The Bel Ami Towers Hotel.
"Cynthia Royal" is referred to early in the episode as being 25-years old. Later, Tim tells Burke that she and her husband had been married for 15 years.
The plot continuity problem mentioned below cannot be accounted for by syndication cuts. In the DVD version, there is also no mention of either Eleanora's job at a night club nor the fact that she had a husband.
There is a second continuity problem, as well. Juliet bursts in on the napping Burke and announces that she has information on "The Davis Case"--the dead girl's current address. When Burke left her early that morning, he was leaving to investigate a "dead brunette". They had only just gotten the girl identified when Burke slipped back home to grab a quick nap, having been out all night. The whole case was wrapped up in one day; it's not likely the news of the girl's identity would have gotten out, let alone the fact that they were trying to find her current address.
Plot continuity problem:
When Smith reads off Eleanora's vital statistics for Burke, he mentions that she's 23 years old, lives on Euclid St. in Apt. 7A, mentions nothing about any other employment, and specifically tells Burke that the company never asks whether the models are married or not.
Later in the same scene, Burke notifies Les that Eleanora is 26 years old, gives him the same Euclid 7A address as Eleanora's, and tells Les that Eleanora worked last year as a photographer at the 711 Club (no idea where this information came from); no mention of a husband is made.
Les and Tim go to Euclid St. and, though Eleanora's address is Apt. 7A, they clearly go and knock on the door of a ground floor apartment in the rear. They pass Mrs. Mulligan's apartment, which is labeled 7C, and knock on 7A, which faces the rear of the building. Then they ask Mrs. Mulligan not about Eleanora Davis, but about Rudy Davis (who has never before been mentioned in anyone's conversation in the episode). Mrs. Mulligan is the person who then provides the "news" that Eleanora was married to Rudy, and that she used to work as a photographer at the 711 club.
I think I can clear up this continuity problem somewhat: In the scene where Ormsby (Nick Adams) is talking to Burke, after he mentions that his nose has been itching lately, there is a very abrupt transition to Mr. Smith (Edward Everett Horton) re-arranging the stuffed bird. It is very likely that at least a few snatches of dialogue between Burke and Ormsby were cut out of the syndicated version I have (which was taped from the defunct Nostalgia Channel). There can't be very much left out--my version runs 51 minutes--but the topics of where Eleanora worked, and who her husband was, were probably covered in this syndicated cut. As for the age difference, Eleanora was 23 back in August 1960, and now is (was) 26. [RW]
Rosemarie Bowe is billed as playing "Ann Maxwell" in the credits, but her character is referred to as "Ann Martin" throughout the episode.
For whatever reason, Gena Rowlands' character's name is spelled "Paullette" on her dressing room door.
This is one of the episodes where M. E. George McLeod was listed as "Lab Man (McCloud)" in the credits.
Gene Barry slips at one point and refers to Jack Weston's character as "Sunny MacCree".
The credits list Allyson Ames character as Mrs. Halsey, but Les keeps referring to her as Miss Halsey.
Cleo tells Burke that she lives in Apt. #7 and that "Myra" lives down the hall in Apt. #9. Later she says that "Myra" lives in the Penthouse.
The victim's name is Diana Mercer, but in the closing credits, Barbara Michaels is billed as playing "Diane Mercer".
The title refers to the Eleventh Best Dressed Woman in the World, but in the script she is continually referred to as the Eleventh Best Dressed Woman in America.
Hazel Court's stunt double in the final scene has a noticeably different hairstyle.
The last name of the characters played by Martha Hyer and Josephine Hutchinson is clearly "Vickers", but the credits list Ms. Hutchinson as playing "Madeline Victors".
Continuity problem - Burke's car pulls up before Linda Murray's agency. He gets out, walks to the door, and rings the doorbell. Getting no answer, he opens the door. In the next shot, we see him continue through the door into the agency, but behind him, instead of the sidewalk, is an interior hallway. Later, Linda looks up from her desk in the office to see a man standing in the rain on the sidewalk next to that same door.
An actor, who is clearly not Victor Jory, is used for several odd over-the-shoulder shots (apparently filmed at a later date) in the scene between Burke and Jim Clover.
The sister act was the De Armand Sisters, but the marquee outside the theater bills them as the Armand Sisters.
