In one scene where Paul Drake Jr. is talking to Della in his office, a black and white portrait photo can be seen. Though it is a bit blurred, you can see it is William Hopper who played the original Paul Drake in the older TV series. See more »

Della Street is set up as the fallguy for a murder. Of course, everybody knows that this sweet, motherly woman wouldn't swat a fly, much less off somebody. Mason pulls out all stops in unraveling the mystery and uncovers a plot to keep a multi-million dollar scam intact. The one phony part in this film is the reaction of a lawyer at the movie's end. No attorney would do what this man did.
