The plot involves a spouse trying to kill the other spouse. In an eerie foreshadowing, Rio is played by Tom Gilson who would be killed in real life by his estranged wife less than 1 year later. He was shot and killed by his wife, former Playboy model and actress Sandra Edwards, on October 6, 1962 during a domestic dispute. His death was later ruled as justified homicide by a coroner's jury after it was learned he broke into her home. See more »


Dan and Lily talk and Dan says King Harris went to the territorial prison 4 years ago. The wanted poster Lily reads shows King Harris escaped from the prison 6 days earlier, yet when Dan talks to Mrs. Harris the same day, she says she knew Harris was in Green River 2 weeks ago and he found Wesley there. Two weeks earlier Harris would have still been in prison. See more »
