  • Great episode

    8.0
    Loved the western nostalgia. Many tense moments including the final wrap up. The amateur detective might cause certain elements of the mystery. Yet there are enough surprises and unexpected twists to make this episode quite sustaining.

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the car scene with Burke and Terry Foster, there is a curious problem with the rear projection. When the camera is focused on Virginia Mayo, the rear projection shows that the Rolls is moving down the street. When the scene cuts to Gene Barry, seconds later, the car is stopped, according to the rear projection. Then, when cutting back to Virginia Mayo, her side of the car is miraculously still in motion.

    • :
      The murder victim is definitely a reference to the Lone Ranger, from his movies with the faithful Indian sidekick and "kemo sabe"-type phrase, to his name, Clayton Steele (Clayton Moore played the Lone Ranger; Bob Steele was a classic film cowboy actor).
