  • Notes

    • The climax of this episode, in which Tony Blake scatters thousands of stage bills to the four winds, was partially set up earlier in the episode when Tony transforms one of his fake bills into a real $20 bill. Some of the bills that were used in this episode were apparently given away as promotional items for the show, and some turned up on eBay decades later. The attention to detail that went into the prop bills is impressive. The bill features the name ANTHONY BLAKE running across the top, with a picture of a flying dove in the middle. Of the right side it reads "MAGIC MONEY" and the left side bears a coat of arms. The front of the bill is signed by William Bailey and Richard Thomas. Next to the name is "SERIES 1934" (the date of Bill Bixby's birth?) The fine print on the bill reads "THIS NOTE IS NOT VALID. IT IS FOR USE IN MOTION PICTURES ONLY AND IS NOT NEGOTIABLE. ITS USE FOR ANY OTHER PURPOSE WILL BE IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW."
