Editorial Reviews

Perry Mason is an attorney who specializes in defending seemingly indefensible cases. With the aid of his secretary Della Street and investigator Paul Drake, he often finds that by digging deeply into the facts, startling facts can be revealed. Often relying on his outstanding courtroom skills, he often tricks or traps people into unwittingly admitting their guilt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Courtroom Drama April 6, 2013
Format:DVD
After 271 episodes, spanning nine years (1957-1966), one of America's all-time favorite courtroom/detective shows, Perry Mason, will come to an end on June 11, 2013, in its ninth and final season (released in two volumes). Volume one features fifteen episodes on four discs. TV's most entertaining landmark series starring Raymond Burr will be remembered and cherished as one of the best, classic shows in television history.

Unlike many of the unimaginable, lackluster TV shows inundating the airwaves today, Perry Mason was and still is one-of-a-kind series. Clean, fun, timeless entertainment at its very best, Perry Mason should not be missed by anyone who relishes substantial entertainment (writing, acting). On June 11, add season nine, volume one to your treasured collection. Highly recommended.

The episodes included in volume one are listed below. Volume two release: To Be Announced.

Episode 1:
"The Case of the Laughing Lady" -
A murder suspect thinks she saw the real killer on television; guests Constance Towers, Bernard Fox.

Episode 2:
"The Case of the Fatal Fortune" -
A fortune teller's predictions come true for a woman, until she is arrested for murder; guest Jesse White.

Episode 3:
"The Case of the Candy Queen" -
The owner of a successful diet-candy business is charged with murdering a gambler who held the formula for her product.

Episode 4:
"The Case of the Cheating Chancellor" -
Perry defends an educator at his old alma mater who is accused of murder; guests Louise Latham, Lee Meriwether.

Episode 5:
"The Case of the Impetuous Imp" -
A rich widower believed to be guilty of his wife's mysterious death is himself murdered.

Format:DVD
I have been watching Perry Mason since the late 1950's and have long since lost track of how many times I've seen every episode. I was hoping that it would eventually be released on DVD - uncut, sharp, commercial-free, and complete - and now it will be. The casting was perfect and Raymond Burr was born to play Mason. No one else has ever even come close. Someone once said, "It's like having an old friend in the room". That was probably more than 40 years ago and it's still true today.

5.0 out of 5 stars The last of the real Perry Mason May 11, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After nine years the Perry Mason franchise needed a rest. When the series began in the fifties, few shows were in color and the TV movie had yet to be invented. The earliest episodes of the series were often based on actual Earle Stanley Gardner titles, mostly pulp fiction mostly written in the thirties, forties and fifties.

By the time the television series ended there were seventy seven Gardner novels and two hundred seventy one television episodes. Each case required Mason, but virtue of courtroom theatrics as Hamilton Burger often put it, not only to get his client off but also to serve the interests of justice by revealing the identity of the true killer who confesses in open court. Gardner had over thirty years to produce his seventy seven novels, the scriptwriters were churning out about thirty episodes a season, three quarters of them original screenplays.

Those kind of demands take tolls on the writers, actors and directors. As time went by, the film noir grit and glamour of LA murders presented in grainy black and white began be stretched too far. And so, the final season of this iconic courtroom drama lacks some of the punch that hooked us so thoroughly during the Eisenhower Administration.

But this season is the last of the real Perry Mason. Paisanos Productions offered us Monte Markham in the title role of the "New Perry Mason" for a season in 1973. That fifteen episode dud, proved to be like "new Coke" and swelled the demand for the real thing. Burr and Barbara Hale, as Della Street, returned to make twenty five TV movies between 1986 and 1993. These were two hour jobs ( no original show was ever even a two parter), filmed in color (so much for film noir) and set in Denver.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Courtroom Drama April 20, 2013
Format:DVD
Perry Mason Season 9 Volume 1

These fifteen TV shows from 1965 are based on the novels of Erle Stanley Gardner. The books are more complete and informative, they tell about life that is not experienced by most people. The books explain why some things are done, the films only show you what happened. The books tell you about "ropers", rough or smooth shadows, how to evade surveillance, and avoid leaving a back trail. Some questioned the legality and ethics of Perry Mason's tactics but the stories were written before modern legal rules. The background tells about life in Los Angeles and America. There is nothing like these dramatic stories on today's broadcast TV. When was the last time you saw a trial lawyer as a hero? Erle Stanley Gardner was a founder of the "Court of Last Resort" which sought to free the unjustly convicted. Gardner sought to use scientific means to find the guilty rather than using hunches or guesses alone.

The seeming reality of these stories is due in part to characters who don't look like Hollywood actors. Some of the original stories were modified for TV. The theme music is typical for the late 1950s. Note the style of clothing and culture; ladies wore white gloves. People seldom lock their doors. The prices date these films. One advantage is seeing the many automobiles from that era. How many can you identify? Note the slimness of people, the smoking, and the familiarity with pistols. Watch how the actors express their emotions by their facial expressions. The camera sharpness and quality is excellent, but these films have a higher contrast than in earlier seasons. These stories often use the misinterpretation of circumstantial evidence to provide dramatic effects. The courtroom scenes are usually the Preliminary Hearings and often tell about the law.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this old TV series.
Can't miss if looking for entertainment that is free of profanity, blood and violence. It's fun to see if I can pick up all the clues to determine who is the guilty person.
