Murder By The Book

This small controversy has come up many times, but is it really certain that either Marcia Wallace wasn't in the episode to begin with or was edited out completely? I still think the woman you see from the back at about 57:00 looks a lot like her, because the hairstyle is like hers in some of the earliest BOB NEWHART SHOW episodes around a year later. If so, it would be a tiny role she was left with, but technically she would still be in it.
