  • Trivia

    • When the citizens are leaving the cells, Andy speaks to one woman and says "Hey Nellie, it's a nice dress". This would be the initial appearance of the extra that came to be known as Nice Dress Nellie. She would appear in scores of shows over the next 7 years, but would never again be named or credited. Despite the scores of appearances, she would never utter a line.
