  • Trivia

    • If we go by actual time between the end of the series and the first TV movie then Paul Drake, Jr. would only be a teenager instead of a man in his 30's. When the series ended in 1966 the original Paul Drake was still a bachelor so assuming he married and fathered a child by the time of the first TV movie the child would only be in his teens. Unless, of course, Paul fathered a child out of wedlock during the course of the series' run and the son took his name. Which is entirely possible considering the fact that the Paul Drake of the series was a major league womanizer.

  • Notes

    • Richard Anderson appears in this movie but not as the character he played in the 9th and final season of the series--Lt. Steve Drumm.

    • Using a plot device that occurred much too frequently in the TV movies the actual killer in this one is some hired goon and the gang has to figure out which one of the chief suspects hired him.

    • This episode and the numerous Perry Mason reunion movies that followed aired on NBC instead of original network CBS.

    • This is the first appearance of William Katt as Paul Drake, Jr.
