This is from Wiki, as I wish to get to the next episode, LOL:
Perry Mason is a fictional character, a criminal defense lawyer who was the main character in works of detective fiction written by Erle Stanley Gardner. Perry Mason was featured in more than 80 novels and short stories, most of which had a plot involving his client’s murder trial.
Perry Mason from 1957 to 1966 starred Raymond Burr; 26 made-for-TV movies starring Burr filmed from 1985 to Burr’s death in 1993.
The key character, apart from Mason, was Della Street, his Girl Friday with whom it was never finally established the exact nature of the relationship, from the books down to the TV movies. The mix of detective and lawyer, plus the Mason/Street relationship made it a very popular series and I’d imagine there’d be people who would watch it even today.
If the early Della was glamorous, the later model was adorable, whereas Perry had become a bit Ironsidish near the end.…
