Trivia

When the Screen Actors Guild comes up in conversation, the actors pronounce it "S-A-G" instead of the more normal "sag." This isn't really an error, as most viewers in those days weren't really aware of its existence or how it was spoken. See more »

Goofs

In the trampoline scene, John Dehner's stunt double has a clearly different hairstyle. See more »

Self financed comeback
9 June 2017 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

One of the more off the wall plots in the history of 77 Sunset Strip came in this episode. In it John Dehner plays a long forgotten film star who used to do his own stunts in films like Douglas Fairbanks.

He wants to make a comeback and has discovered a highly interesting way of self financing his own comeback film. He's gone in for cat burglary and he has the athletic skill to do the jobs. During the program we see how Dehner has kept himself in shape.

The LAPD is baffled and the insurance company hires Bailey&Spencer. No matter what he does and he's practically daring the law to catch him neither Efrem Zimbalist or the cops can catch him in the act or locate where he's hidden his loot.

More I cannot say, but this is one pip of an episode.
