Perry Mason is the long-running drama series which spawned a series of over three dozen telefilms.
Based on Erle Stanley Gardner's many novels about a brilliant defense lawyer and his staff that solved many a crime with surprise witnesses and stern cross-examinations. Filmed almost exclusively in the Los Angeles area, Raymond Burr had Gardner's seal of approval in the role.
The cases were usually won by way of pivotal confessions of witnesses, solicited by Perry Mason (Burr's) surgeon-like examination or with last-minute, key evidence brought into the courtroom by private investigator, Paul Drake (William Hopper). Della Street (Barbara Hale), Perry´s faithful secretary, was always at Perry's side in the courtroom where hapless Hamilton Burger (William Tallman) was the Los Angeles District Attorney who never seemed to win.
Perry Mason double bills at 3pm on CBS Drama.
