Setting a time bomb to destroy Walter's newest invention, an underwater sounding device, Phyllis decides to literally kill two birds with one stone by knocking out Phyllis and leaving her to die in the explosion. Fortunately, Phyllis escapes in the nick of time; unfortunately, she is subsequently charged with Laura's murder. Attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) relies upon an elaborate (and expensive) courtroom demonstration to save Phyllis from the gas chamber. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Difficult Detour Constuction engineer Pete Mallory (Jeff York) is surprised when work on a new road is suddenly halted by a restraining order. It seems that Mallory's crew has unwittingly set up shop on private property, and that blame for this "error" falls upon the shoulders of dishonest developer Stuart Benton (Jason Evers), who plans to build a vacation resort where the road should be. Not long after confronting Benton, Mallory is charged with the man's murder--and it is up to Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) to burrow to the bottom of the situation and dig up the real killer. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Torrid Tapestry Framed for setting fire to a warehouse containing the famous Nathan Claver art collection, Claude Demay (Robert H. Harris) is released from prison after six years. With vengenace on his mind, Claude plans to use a forgery of a "lost" Panamaker tapestry to prove that Leonard Voss (John Holland) is the real culprit, and that the Claver collection, allegedly destroyed in the fire, still exists. Unfortunately, Voss is murdered, and it looks like Claude is going to be railroaded back behind bars for keeps unless Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) can prove him innocent. Veteran movie leading man Conrad Nagel appears as a dapper art connoisseur, who may know more than he is letting on. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Blind Man's Bluff A man wearing dark glasses steals a valuable necklace from the showroom window of a jewelry store--then returns the item and walks away. It turns out that this is a mere "dress rehearsal" for an actual robbery planned by store employee Karl Addison (John Conte), who intends to use the fact that an upcoming operation will render him temporarily blind as his alibi. Alas, things go terribly wrong, and Addison is killed. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) enters the scene when his client James Kincannon (Jack Ging) is charged with Addison's murder. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Angry Dead Man Eve Nesbitt (Gloria Talbott) contacts Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) to determine the progress of the insurance settlement related to the drowning death of her husband Willard (Les Tremayne). As it happens, however, Willard is only pretending to be dead so that Eve can collect on the policy's "double-indemnity" clause. But when his business partner Lloyd Castle (Edward Binns) cheats Eve out of her share of a gold mine, Willard emerges from hiding--only to be bumped off for real. Accused of murdering her husband, Eve once again puts her fate in Perry's hands. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Misguided Missile Once again, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) is called upon to defend an old war buddy on a murder charge. This time around, his client is Major Jerry Reynolds (Robert Rockwell), who is also the target of an investigation at Vandenberg Air Force Base concerning the mysterious crashes of several guided missiles. The murder victim was Captain Caldwell (Simon Oakland), who as chief investigator seemed to have a personal vendetta against Maj. Reynolds. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Guilty Clients Accompanied by her tempestuous cousin Concepcion (Faith Domergue), Lola Bronson (Lisa Gaye) breezes into LA from Argentina to finalize her divorce from her husband, aircraft designer Jeff Bronson (Lisa Gaye). But when she suspects Bill Ryder (played by singer Guy Mitchell) of deliberately sabotaging Jeff's business, Lola rises to her ex-husband's defense and tries to extract a confession from Ryder--at gunpoint. Ultimately, Perry Mason must defend both of the battling Bronsons on a charge of murdering Ryder. This is the final episode of Perry Mason's fourth season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Barefaced Witness Summoned to a small California mountain community by his client Iris McKay (Enid James), detective Paul Drake (William Hopper) is prompty arrested for the crime of being clean-shaven; it seems that it is "Pioneer Week", and every male in town is required to wear a false beard! Once this matter is cleared up, Paul gets down to business, attempting to locate nearly $34,000 that had been embezzled from the local bank by its former president Fred Swan (Russ Conway), who has returned to town after being released from prison. Paul ultimately finds the money--and also Swan's dead body. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) arrives on the scene to defend poor Iris on a murder charge. Watch for a pre-Batman Adam West in the supporting cast. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Cowardly Lion When a baby gorilla named Toto is stolen from a zoo, curator Tony Osgood (Fred Beir) begins questioning his employees. One of them, a visiting dentist named Dr. Braun (Leslie Bradley), accuses Tony's girlfriend Hilde (Carol Rossen) of stealing Toto. Not long afterward, Braun is found dead in the lion's cage--and once it is determined that lion didn't do it (hence the episode's title), suspicion immediately falls upon Tony. In his efforts to mount Tony's defense, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) unearths several unsavory secrets, among them the fact that the dead man was a bigamist--and that there's a drug-smuggling ring at the center of all the intrigue. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Violent Vest Nearly bankrupt because of his wife's gambling debts, ad executive Herman Albright (Erik Rhodes) tries to forget his problems by hitting on fashion model Grace Frye (Myrna Fahey). Angry and humiliated, Grace consults Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) in an effort to break her contract with Albright's agency. As a result, Mason is on hand to defend Grace on a charge of murdering Albright--who actually may have been a victim of mistaken identity rather than revenge. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Duplicate Daughter Carter Gilman (Walter Kinsella) abruptly vanishes from his home while he is having breakfast with his daughter Muriell (Kaye Elhardt). Investigating Gilman's disappearance, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) finds evidence of a struggle in the man's workshop. He also finds a great deal of money--and before long a greater deal of money, specifically two million dollars, will enter into the proceedings, along with such diverse elements as blackmail and false identities. Ultimately, Perry must defend Gilman on a charge of murder. This episode is based on a 1960 novel by Perry Mason creator Erle Stanley Gardner. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Grumbling Grandfather Wealthy J.J. Gideon (Otto Kruger) disapproves of the romance between his grandson David (Karl Held) and David's secretary Dorine (Patricia Barry). As it happens, Gideon has good reason to be upset: Dorine is a duplicitous golddigger who swindles David out of $10,000, claiming that she needs it to get her husband Tony out of her life. Pretty soon, Tony is out of his own life as well--and David, who was seen fighting with Tony just before the man's death, is charged with murder. Evidently Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) takes quite a shine to David while preparing his defense; during the series' fifth season, David Gideon would return on a semi-regular basis as Perry's new legal assistant. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Henry) suddenly returns and begins make everyone's life miserable all over again, especially his wife Sybil (Peggy Converse). After he fires his heir apparent Peter Dawson (Philip Ober), Bassett is murdered and Dawson is accused. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) is approached by two eyewitnesses, Richard Hart (a young Robert Redford) and his wife Teddi (Cindy Robbins), who can prove that Bassett is innocent. There are only two problems: each witness claims that a different person is the guilty party--and both witnesses abuptly vanish just before the trial! This is the first episode of Perry Mason's fourth season. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Credulous Quarry Lawyer Richard Hammon (John Conwell) is accused of murdering his wife by running her down with his car. Taking Richard's case is another attorney, Everett Dorrell (Russell Arms), who happens to be crooked. In the end, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) must not only save Hammon from conviction but must also undo the damage caused by the "rotten apple" attorney. Filmed for Perry Mason's third season, this episode was originally slated to air on March 26, 1960. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Ill-Fated Faker Feeling neglected by her rich husband Carl (Howard Petrie), Alice Gorman (June Dayton) is attracted to Carl's no-good, leeching nephew Jim Ferris (William Campbell). What follows is a treacherous morass of greed, grand robbery ($80,000 worth) and murder, with innocent secretary Betty Wilkins (Sue Randall) taking the rap and Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) rushing to her defense. Originally identified by TV Guide as Perry Mason's fourth-season opener, this episode was actually that season's third entry, preceded by a brace of episodes left over from Season Three. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Singular Double In big trouble after delivering some "hot" money, Lucy Stevens (Connie Hines) fakes her own suicide by driving her empty car into the ocean. She then assumes the identity of her own (fictional) cousin, Carole Morgan, and assumes that her problems are over. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) enters the scene when the body of Marjorie Ralston (Mary Webster) is found in the wreckage of the "empty" car and Lucy is charged with her murder. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Lavender Lipstick It looks as if Karen Lewis (Pat Breslin), a minor employee of lipstick manufacturer Silas Vance (James Bell), has been caught red-handed as an industrial spy when a bank book containing two huge deposits and a rival manufacturer's phone number is found in her desk. Her boss accuses Karen of selling his secret lipstick formulas to the "enemy", but is willing to forget everything if the girl agrees to, er, "be nice" to him. Not long afterward, Vance is murdered--and because she is the sole beneficiary in his will, Karen is charged with the crime. Calling Perry Mason (Raymond Burr)! ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Red Riding Boots As upset as she is over the impending divorce of her parents, Ann Farwell (Elen Willard) is even more upset that her rancher father Burt (John Archer) is keeping company with sexy young Rita Conover (Shirley Ballard). When Rita is murdered, Ann thinks that her mom Jill (Linda Leighton) is the killer, and vice versa. The two ladies spend so much time covering for each other that Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) hardly has time to defend the accused murderer, ranch hand Joe Dixon (Frank Maxwell). This is one of several episodes directed by Laslo Benedek, whose movie credits include the definitive motorcycle-gang epic The Wild One. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Provocative Protegee It looks like suicide when hasbeen concert pianist David Carpenter (Gregory Morton) plunges off a cliff. Then the suspicion arises that Carpenter was actually murdered so that his wife Anita (Virginia Field) could collect his life insurance. But Anita is not the client of Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) in the subsequent preliminary hearing: instead, Carpenter's sexy protegee Donna Ross (Kathie Browne) has been charged with the murder. (Trivia note: the original TV Guide listings identify the suspect as "Donna Loring", a name presumably changed at the last minute for legal reasons). Robert Karnes makes his first appearance as Deputy DA Chamberlin, one of several temporary replacements for absentee regular William Talman (DA Hamilton Burger). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Wandering Widow After unjustly serving six years for murder, Riley Morgan (Dean Harens) is released from prison when merchant seaman Burt Stokes (Casey Adams), who could have cleared Riley disappeared just before the trial, suddenly returns. But the story is far from over: Morgan's exoneration somehow leads to an extortion scheme and a second murder, with Stokes as the victim. Charged with the crime is Morgan's ex-wife Lorraine (Coleen Gray), who fortunately is a client of Perry Mason (Raymond Burr). Paul Langton is cast as Deputy DA Telford, the first of several temporary replacements for absentee series regular William Talman (Hamilton Burger). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Clumsy Clown Judson Curtis (Walter Sande) hopes to gain full control of the circus he co-owns with Jerry Franklin (Robert Clarke) by threatening to reveal that Franklin's wife Lisa (Chana Eden) is still legally married to circus clown Felix Heidemann (Douglas Henderson). Unfortunately for Curtis, he is shot to death during a clown act in full view of a huge audience. This is even more unfortunate for Heidemann, who is identified as the killer--and among the eyewitnesses is Lt. Tragg (Ray Collins), perennial nemesis of attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr). In the absence of series regular William Talman (DA Hamilton Burger), Kenneth Tobey appears as Deputy DA Alvin. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Nine Dolls Seven-year-old Peggy Smith (Laurie Perreau) has spent most of her life at the exclusive Westcroft Boarding School. Her tuition has been paid by an unknown person, who has also sent Peggy a doll each year. Curious about her benefactor, and wishing to find out who her parents were, little Peggy consults attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr). It turns out that Peggy is the granddaughter of wealthy recluse Courtney Jeffers (Francis X. Bushman), whose hard heart melts the moment he sets eyes on the child. But no sooner has Jeffers acknowledged that Peggy is his granddaughter than he is bludgeoned to death--and the person accused of the crime is Linda Osborne (played by Maggie Mahoney, real-life mother of actress Sally Field), who at Peggy's request is defended by Perry during the inevitable courtroom intrigues. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Loquacious Liar Lewis Martin (Wynn Pearce) considers himself lucky to be alive; he has been kidnapped, driven way in the country, and forced to get drunk, apparently as part of an elaborate frame-up. After his ordeal, Martin contacts Perry Mason (Raymond Burr), accusing his stepfather Judson Bailey (Bruce Gordon) of arranging the abduction in order to get Martin out of the way so that Bailey could take over the family business. Perry is asked to locate a photograph showing Bailey conspiring with the mysterious kidnapper--but the lawyer ends up defending Martin when Bailey turns up dead. H.M. Wynant makes his first appearance as Deputy DA Sampson, one of several temporary replacements for absentee series regular William Talman (DA Hamilton Burger). ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Larcenous Lady Mayor Henderson (Arthur Franz) is up for an appointment to the state crime commission, but he is danger of being sabotaged by his overambitious wife Mona (Patricia Huston), who has been purloining city plans and passing them along to crooked real estate agent Tom Stratton (Edward Platt). Now Stratton is blackmailing Mona, hoping to enrich himself at Henderson's expense. When Mona is murdered, however, Lt. Tragg (Ray Collins) bypasses both Henderson and Stratton and arrests Susan Connolly (played by future Oscar winner Louise Fletcher) for the crime. Thank heaven that Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) is on hand to expose the real killer. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Waylaid Wolf Playboy Loring Lamont (Tony Travis) lures his father's secretary Arlene Ferris (Andra Martin) to his beach house, with seduction on his mind. The outraged Arlene smacks Lamont in the face and steals his car to escape his clutches. When Lamont turns up murdered, Arlene is accused of the crime, but attorney Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) thinks that the killing is tied in with a mysterious phone call overheard by his client--and he is willing to risk serious injury at the hands of two hired thugs to prove his point. Based on a 1959 novel by Perry Mason creator Erle Stanley Gardner, this is one of several fourth-season episodes in which series regular William Talman (DA Hamilton Burger) does not appear; his replacement on this and other occasions is Robert Karnes as Deputy DA Chamberlin. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Resolute Reformer Peter Caine (Douglas Dick), the dissolute son of prominent building engineer William Harper Craine (John Hoyt), is being blackmailed by Debra Bradford (Diana Millay), who claims that Peter was involved in a hit-and-run accident while drunk. This act of extortion is somehow tied in with the murder of building contractor Roger Quigley (James Westerfield), for which Peter's father is charged. Initially hired by a citizen's group to prevent the construction of an aqueduct named after William Harper Crane, Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) ends up defending the man in court. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Envious Editor Future film superstar James Coburn appears as slimy entrepreneur Donald Fletcher, who purchases a highly respected publishing house and converts its output to slezy tabloids and nudie magazines. Unable to legally prevent Fletcher from inflicting further damage, editor Edmond Aitken (Philip Abbott), whose family once owned the publishing firm, may be driven to desperation. Ultimately, Fletcher is murdered--but it is Aitken's wife Alyce (Sara Shane), rather than her husband, who is charged with the crime because she was being blackmailed by Fletcher with nude photos taken during her modelling career. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) prepares to clear Alyce and ferret out the genuine culprit. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide Perry Mason: The Case of the Fickle Fortune Hired to inventory the Bowden estate, Ralph Duncan (Vaughn Taylor), a none-too-bright civil servant, decides to impress his wife Helen by bringing home $153,000 in old greenbacks that he has found on the Bowden property. Of course, Duncan intends to return the money the next morning; unfortunately, the cash is stolen by his no-good cousin Charley (Robert Casper). Not only is poor Duncan accused of theft, but he's also charged with the murder of one Lloyd Farrell (Liam Sullivan)--and it is at this point that Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) enters the story. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
