R15 the Mortimer Club is indeed based on the very real Everglades Club in Palm Beach which was notorious for its antisemitism.
However, West Coast writers would probably be unaware how different the worlds of Miami and Palm Beach were (and still are.)

^ I agree she did great work. A couple days ago I saw her in an old Murder She Wrote episode. She was good in that one too. I was wondering why Barbara Thorndyke had become so iconic. I can only assume it's because written well, and Bartlett nailed it playing her. After all, she was only in three scenes, and people still remember her. Doesn't happen too often.

His tuxedo has nothing to do with it.

He can't come to the club.
- Why not?
What are you talking about?
Guttman. He's Jewish, isn't he? I don't know.
What difference does it make?
Oh, a big difference. The Mortimer Club is restricted.
Why are you a member of a club like that?
Because they serve a great breakfast and the parking is free. Besides, it's their policy, not mine.
- Yeah, but you tolerate it.
- Dorothy, I tolerate a lot of things. For instance, I'm tolerating this evening with Rose and Blanche because of my friendship with you.
I can't believe I'm hearing this.
Let's not make a big thing out of this. We can't go to the Mortimer Club. We'll go to another restaurant.
Boy, did I misjudge you. Blanche and Rose were right. You are not the kind of person I want as a friend. Go to the Mortimer Club by yourself.
