"Bull..." is played mostly for laughs and ancient Ms. Winwood provides many of them with her animated and energetic performance. She lived to be over 100 and was the oldest member ever active in the Screen Actor's Guild. Ms. Corby later was seen for years on "The Waltons." Veteran actor Morgan had a long and prolific career in movies and television. With his usual flair for the absurd, host Hitchcock wryly apologizes to the audience during the sign-off for not including a real bull and a china shop in the presentation.
In my book, it's a delightful entry, with delicious tongue-in-cheek. Catch big-eyed Miss Hildy (Winwood) roll those coquettish orbs as she lets handsome O'Finn (Morgan) in the front door. So, their little ruse has worked, but what about the dead lady all laid out in the parlor in her best finery. The four giggle and carry on like school girls. So what's the gentlemanly O'Finn to do with a dead body and a set of highly unusual suspects. This is the series at its dark humor and offbeat best, with no less than a wild ending.
