    • NOTES (1)

      • "Miss Gordon", the other woman with Mrs. Bates at the seance, was played by Queenie Smith, who received no screen credit for her appearance.

    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • The title of this episode, "Bigger than a Bread Box," is taken from a question that Steve Allen made famous while he was a regular panelist on the 1950-1967 game show "What's My Line?" In January 1953, Allen started asking the game show contestants this question - "Is your product bigger than a breadbox?" The phrase became very popular and soon other panelists were asking the question as well. The phrase remained popular all through the CBS version of "What's My Line?" and also the 1968-1975 syndicated version of "What's My Line?" - Suzanne Astorino
