Production Information[]

Executive Producers: Peter S. Fischer
Producer: Robert E. Swanson


In New York City researching her next book, Jessica is drawn into a mystery involving a priceless tiara, a reclusive former actress and a news reporter accused of murder.


The characters of Chadwick and Stacey are a spoof of Cagney and Lacey.

Last acting role of Jean Peters.

The title refers to the eighteenth century Irish ballad "The Wearing of the Green" about social conditions at time of the Irish Rebellion of 1798. A shamrock worn on your hat was a sign of support and possible membership in the Society of the United Irishmen, a republican revolutionary organization.

Jean Peters modeled her character after Greta Garbo, a reclusive foreign actress who goes into seclusion following the demise of her lover at the height of her career.

Guest star David Sheiner's final acting role to date. He retired from acting as of 1988 (yet, see "Goofs" below).

Fifth episode where the murder is committed in self-defense; the others are Footnote to Murder, If It's Thursday, It Must Be Beverly Indian Giver, & Just Another Fish Story.

Victim: Laszlo Dolby

Killer: Andrea Dean

Cause of death: Stabbed

Motive: Self-defense after Laszlo attacked her when she confronted him about the fake tiara.


The debris after the explosion was blown out into the street, showing the explosion took place indoors, with it happening from outdoors, the debris would be found on the inside, now wouldn't it ?

With the tiara that was found after the explosion was redeemed a fake, given the money in the envelope was to pay for the gems that was used to make the fake, Blackthorne, has no use for the original, because it was given to Siobhan O'Dea, if he had gotten possession of the genuine tiara, he would be guilty for possessing stolen property, now wouldn't he ? so why not have the genuine one be given to Siobhan ?

If this was the last acting for Sheiner, explain The Bradys episode when Mike was running for the town's city council, Sheiner was the one that was offering a bribe to Mike, the newspaper had shown the money in MIke's hand after Sheiner had handed it to him, now wouldn't it ?

There was no need to arrest Ken Parrish for Laszlo's murder given that Andrea had seen Parrish in the hallway & that she had seen for herself that Ken never entered the apartment, so with no entrance into the apartment, how could he be a suspect in the killing, given that he was never inside the apartment, so with him never being in the apartment, how could he have used the weapon on Laszlo, so you tell me why he was arrested, given that there was also no motive to do it, either ?
