Trivia

Due to mistake in the sound booth, all of the dialogue in this episode was recorded at a fluctuating speed. As the only color episode of the series, the stakes were already high and everyone was terrified of inciting the wrath of star/producer George Burns, so engineers spent a grueling weekend matching the sound to the film syllable-by-syllable. Burns didn't learn of the mistake until years later. See more »

Crazy Credits

The Hollywood Reporter newspaperman is Leo "Guild" (not Gill). See more »
