  • Trivia

    • It is possible that this episode was distantly inspired by the real-life story of how the Mafia attempted, during the 1940s, to take over the islands in the Bahamas, then a British dependency. The famous case of the murder in 1943 of Sir Harry Oakes, the wealthiest man on Nassau, is one still officially unsolved; however, it is generally thought that his opposition to the interests of American mobster Meyer Lansky was the inspiration for the crime.
