Five famous literary detective characters and their sidekicks are invited to a bizarre mansion to solve an even stranger mystery.
Nurse Withers has the same last name as the character Hildegarde Withers, who appeared in several movies including Penguin Pool Murder (1932).
In the early kitchen scenes the bread in the box on the kitchen table is pointing in the direction of the stove/back door. After the butler has been discovered dead, the bread points in the opposite direction. As the three detectives exit, the bread stands straight up.

The original ABC Network broadcast of the film contained four additional scenes not found in the theatrical or DVD version. 1. Jessica Marbles' taxi driver (played by Peter Sellers) requests a large fare. 2. Dick and Dora Charleston narrowly avoid running over Tess Skeffington, who is walking back to Sam Diamond's car from a service station because she and Sam ran out of gas. Satisfied that Tess is all right, the Charlestons simply drive off, leaving her there. 3. When Willie Wang covers up the body of Twain, he finds a note in Twain's hand and smugly announces this to the others. 4. As the detectives drive away from Twain's house at the end of the film Inspector Wang and Willie pass another car carrying Sherlock Holmes (Keith McConnell) and Dr. Watson (Richard Peel) heading towards the Twain home. When Willie asks his father "Why didn't you warn them?" Wang replies "Let idiots find out for themselves."
