  • Notes

    • The character "Tom McKell", played by Monte Markham, is not the only character to have a name changed from the original novel. "Carson McKell" (Ray Milland) was originally "Ashton McKell" and his wife "Marian" (Kim Hunter) was "Lutetia". The murder victim was originally called "Sheila Grey", not "Monica", whilst the family lawyer "Ben Waterson", played by Tim O'Connor, is a conflation of three different lawyers in the book, all with different names. Furthermore, in the book, Ellery Queen doesn'tsolve the murder - he names the wrong man, and his father solves the case.
