Trivia

This was the first "regular," 60-minute episode and was the first appearance of Roger Smith as Jeff Spencer. It also introduced the character of Kookie, played by Edd Byrnes (who portrayed a villain in the pilot), and was the first use of Dino's Lodge as a setting. See more »

Goofs

The Hillside Lanai Apartments, which occasionally figured in the series, is described as being at the intersection of Fountain and La Cienega--less than a mile from 77 Sunset Strip, not across the alley as implied in this episode. See more »

Stu Bailey's alibi
11 May 2019 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

The usual unflappable Efrem Zimbalist, Jr. shows some really bad judgment in this episode of 77 Sunset Strip. Bailey&Spencer gain a blot on their name when an operative they use blackmails the woman he shadows. When Stu Bailey finds out there's a big row and a fight. But later his former operative winds up dead and Zimbalist is in a nice jackpot.

Byron Keith as Lt.Gilmore is not a semi-regular yet so there's no help from the LAPD. Roger Smith helps out his partner and Zimbalist has to locate the beautiful blond played by Kathleen Crowley who is his alibi or else it's curtains.

Nice episode, but even a guy as smart as Stu Bailey can have a bad day.
