      • Actress Virginia Grey appeared in many films and TV shows over the years and promptly left show business in 1970; however she was coaxed back for a mini-series role in 1976, and last appeared as herself being interviewed in a Joan Crawford retrospective in 2002. She died of heart failure on July 31, 2004 aged 87.

      • Regular viewers who have followed the show from its inception will notice a blatant narrative inconsistency. We learn that Steve left Bedford Springs in 1940 when he was 25 and settled in Bryant Park, yet via flashback in Episode # 41, a second season installment (actually produced during the first season) it is the year 1931, Steve is supposedly just 17 years old and has lived all his life in Bryant Park.

      • Writer James Allardice had suddenly died in February, 1966 aged 46. This teleplay was revamped by show contributor Gail Ingram Clement, but held over to the following season.

      • Steve makes an off-handed reference that he has another son (Mike) who is married and lives away from home -- and this will indeed be the last time that he is mentioned by name on the series.

      • The houses and sets of 'Bedford Springs' were from "The Andy Griffith Show" (1960-68). And in another case or borrowing things, Ellen Keefer's oldest son Eddie is seen reading the comic book "The Monster Horse from Outer Space", which was used by Steve to comical effect in the "Top Secret" episode from the fourth season.
