    FILTER BY TYPE

    • TRIVIA (1)

      • John Daly, playing the unconscious Gort, quickly moves his hand and grabs the top edge of the taxi/car pulling himself to assist Willy and Barney as they take him out of the back of the car before slipping into the house to replace Wilson with the unconscious Gort.

    • QUOTES (0)

    • NOTES (2)

      • Guest star Sorrell Booke actually had first-hand experience in espionage having been employed as a counter-intelligence officer during the Korean War.

      • Although Steven Hill is only briefly in this episode, his character Briggs is through the clever plot contrivance of having Briggs disguised as the character Carl Wilson. Of course, actually actor James Daly plays Wilson, Briggs-as-Wilson, and Gort-as-Wilson.
