As can be glimpsed from his study bookcase, Patrick Glover's bibliography includes "The Swizzlestick Murders", "Solo Fiddle", "Matricide in Macao", "Hot Line", "Rod of Anger", "The Corpse", "Mopery in Memphis" and "The Naked Fandango".
In full, the crime writer's name is Patrick Goldsworthy Sitwell Glover.
Unused to the technical requirements of film direction, William G. Stewart approached the production as he did the parent TV series, with a multi-camera set-up. Needless to say, this substantially (and unnecessarily) upped the expense of the film.
