[after exiting his chartered plane a little airsick]
What's his name and where'd he go?
His name was Roberts. I dropped him at a bus for the Lakeview Hotel.
They haven't got a lake here, have they?
No, but the hotel has beds for you to lie down on.
That's a very clever remark. Take me to a taxi, please.

A wonderful version of Perry Mason. Warren William is the perfect shyster, affiable, witty, lovable, funny and willing to bend the law a little for his client while skewering his adversaries. The dialog is great and pace never lags. A very good mystery with a great 30s setting. I wish WW had played Perry in a dozen of these Gardner stories.
