Did You Know?

This appears to be one of the first instances of a lesbian appearing on screen in a sympathetic light. The character of Elaine (played by Kathleen Lloyd) had been a secret lover of the murder victim Claire. In the next scene, the doctor character (played by Rene Auberjonois) uses the phrase "coming out of the closet" in talking about his counseling between the two.See more »
