Episode Notes
Khigh Dhiegh would go onto play the villainous Wo Fat on the long running crime drama Hawaii Five-O.

Episode Goofs
Nitpick: It's funny that in an episode where many characters are of Chinese descent almost none of the actors who are supposed to be playing Chinese are of that nationality. Pilar Seurat was Filipino, Abraham Sofaer was Burmese, James Shigeta is Japanese, and Khigh Dhiegh was Egyptian/Sudanese.
