    • According to the February 1981 issue of Reruns Magazine, which covered every episode of the series, both Gene Autry and Tony Martin made unbilled cameo appearances in this episode. If so, just like in Episode 9, that footage was deleted when the episode was shortened for syndication.

    • The shot of Henry smoking and waiting for Burke outside of Amy Booth's house is the exact same shot used when Henry waited outside "Mrs. Bowie's" rooming house in "Who Killed Holly Howard?". You can even see the name "Bowie" over the entrance.
