      • This episode is worth watching for the camera work alone. It features a device called a 'snorkel camera' which has been developed by cameraman-director Paul Kenworthy. During the card game, the camera floats from player to player so we see the cards up close, and then on to the dealer so we can see the note that Cinnamon has passed to him. Then when Barney breaks into the safe, the camera seems to travel the length of the room, enter the safe, and then turn around to face Barney at the other end of the room.

      • Remade in the '88 series revival as "The System."
