Trivia

On its original airing, this episode was presented first in black & white and then in color. USA Network then held an on-line poll for viewers to indicate which version they preferred. The episode opened with Tony Shalhoub providing an intro from the set about how it would be airing in black & white. It closed with Ted Levine and Jason Gray-Stanford introducing the color version, with Ted insisting it was better in color and Jason preferring to agree with Tony. See more »

Goofs

When Randy is looking at Steiner's appointment book he notes that last New Year's Eve, Steiner played a private party for Mandy Bronson. December 31, 2005 was a Saturday, but the book shows it as a Sunday. Obviously this is a 2006 appointment book. See more »

Adrian Monk: [Adrian and Natalie are breaking into a mansion. They have put up a ladder against the wall. Adrian is urging Nathalie to climb up] Hurry! What are you waiting for? Go!
Natalie Teeger: [climbs the ladder and lands on the other side of the wall] Okay. You're next!
Adrian Monk: [feeling the ladder] No, no, it's... eh... it's wobbly. Somebody has to hold it.
Natalie Teeger: Mr. Monk I can't come back. I'm already over!
Adrian Monk: Well, it's too wobbly! Look! It's all wobbly! I can't climb this! Why is it so wobbly?

A FILM NOIR: Cool......Very Cool!
4 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This has the best beginning I've ever seen on a Monk show. That's because I am biased, being a big fan of film noir movies, those great black-and-white crime films of the late '40s and early '50s.

The star of this show, actor Tony Shalhoub, greets us in a first-ever pre-introduction and explains that this show has all the elements of a film noir and so they filmed it in black-and-white. Sit back and enjoy, he says.....and I did. That opening segment has some of the best photography I've ever seen and it is truly great film cinematography. Monk meets a rich man who has disappeared for seven years and then tells (and shows himself, out of the shadows) as a man who has leprosy!!

After the commercial, we see the germ-conscious Adrian Monk freaking out and the film shifts to comedy for a bit until it settles into the story featuring deception, a femme fatal and all the other goodies of good noir.....yet, at the same time keeping it's comedy close by.

We also find Natalie getting a boy friend, a dermatologist played by Englishman Paul Blackthorn. He's the guy who played a terrorist in the series '24."

It got a little silly in the end and, for once, I had the crime solved before Monk figured it out. Kudos to the show for this unique black-and-white presentation. It was nice to see.
