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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad sound, avoidable errors August 30, 2012
Format:DVD
Hello, I have only watched three episodes of this instalment so far, but I have noticed poor sound quality (brittle, harsh). Also, the credits on Episode 1 are from another episode and the order of the episodes on this first disk are out of sequence (Episode 2 on the disk was actually Episode 4 when it originally ran). Given that we pay a premium price for just half a season, I find second-rate quality unacceptable. Boo to CBS.

2.0 out of 5 stars Bad sound engineering :-( August 27, 2012
By Joel
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This set continues the generally splendid remastering and restoration of the wonderful Perry Mason series, which is as much fun decades later as I remember it being when it was new. All highly recommended.

But starting with this set (and I hope it's not a trend), the sound engineering as taken a terrible turn. (1) The sound frequently has a brittle, hard-edged quality that makes some of the actors' voices truly unpleasant. (2) Even worse, the difference in volume between the spoken dialogue and the (wonderfully melodramatic) musical "commentary" is so huge that you can't leave the volume on a single setting through the episode. Who decided that the musical soundtrack had to be BLASTING in an otherwise acoustically rather demure soundtrack (which would be appropriate for the historical period). I'm not overdoing authenticity here -- I'm complaining about unnecessary physical discomfort, and annoyance at having to fiddle with volume multiple times during an episode.

Phooey!

(My two stars is admittedly punitive; but I know of no other way to protest the bad engineering.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the standard July 24, 2012
Format:DVD
Intelligent writing and superb acting made this series the standard by which all courtroom/crime drama is measured to this day. Noir enthusiasts will appreciate the intricate and ever shifting plots coupled with intense drama that will draw you in quickly and not let you go. From the moment I hear the opening music I am drawn in and held to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perry Mason's Seventh Season, Part I (1963-64) September 23, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
America's favorite courtroom lawyer continues with 15 classic episodes on this 4-disc set. Below you will find the episodes included in this set, the original air date, a brief synopsis, and mention of guest stars.

THE CASE OF THE NEBULOUS NEPHEW (September 26, 1963)---Perry defends an artist with two names who has been switching identities with another man. Hugh Marlowe guest stars.

THE CASE OF THE DEADLY VERDICT (October 3, 1963)---In a rare defeat, Perry loses a case to perennial loser Hamilton Burger. Did his client really kill her invalid aunt and will she die in the gas chamber? Perry has a hunch and won't rest until he saves the day for his client. Julie Adams guest stars as his client.

THE CASE OF THE SHIFTY SHOEBOX (October 10, 1963)---An eight-year-old finds a gun belonging to his uncle and hides it. He doesn't know it's evidence in a homicide case and the only clue that can clear his aunt of murder. Billy Mumy, Constance Ford, and Denver Pyle guest star.

THE CASE OF THE DROWSY MOSQUITO (October 17, 1963)---Based on Erle Stanley Gardner's 1943 novel, this episode is unusual in that there is no trial---just a coroner's inquest. When someone tries to kill a friend of Perry's who has discovered a lost gold mine, Paul Drake begins an investigation. Strother Martin guest stars.

THE CASE OF THE DECADENT DEAN (October 24, 1963)---Manzana Valley Prep School is the setting for sabotage, infidelity, and murder. Perry goes back to school to solve an unlikely book stealing case. Milton Selzer portrays the defendant.

THE CASE OF THE RELUCTANT MODEL (October 31, 1963)---Perry is thrust into the world of art dealers and art forgers when a wealthy collector hosts a party to celebrate his newest acquisition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Season 7, Volume 1 appears better than Season 6 September 24, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The writing for Season 7 Volume 1 (Volume 2 not having been issued yet) appears to be better than what we saw in Season 6, in which some episodes Raymond Burr did not even appear. It is sad to see so fewer appearances of Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg, but his health was apparently declining considerably by then and he just couldn't do much anymore.

A pleasant nuance is that in some episodes of Season 7, Vol. 1 there is also displayed an occasional renewed collegiality between District Atty Burger and Perry Mason, which is refreshing, and a nice departure from his hitherto usual "take no prisoners" and "the hell with fairness and truth" approach he seemed to have with regard to practicing law for most of the series. (Sad result of that past approach today: the numerous wrongly-convicted prisoners who are now freed from time to time due to DNA proving their innocence, only to have the former prosecutor, who is more often than not now a judge himself, be interviewed by a reporter and arrogantly offer no apology for the terrible injustice due to his likely past manipulation or hiding of exculpating evidence, but moreover proclaiming that he still feels the jury made the right decision!)

It was a great television series that was first shown when I was too young to appreciate, but for which I and my wife are most grateful we can enjoy today on DVD. We have all of the seasons issued on DVD so far; and we are looking forward to Vol. 2 of Season 7 to be released in late October 2012.
