A realistic Assessment: the Incredibile Perry Mason
26 August 2006 | by (The Society NY) – See all my reviews

I do recall seeing this made for TV pilot. The pilot didn't carry, thus Raymond burr is fated to remain Perry Mason for all eternity, the crowd pleasing lawyer show of the early 1960s.

what probably turned many off on this pilot was its measure of realism where judges tell lawyers not vice-versa and threaten them "you'll never come back to my part..." i recall as i watched this thinking: "how dare that oaf of a judge say such a thing to the great perry mason..."

But Burr's character does stand his ground properly within the courtly bounds of the procedures imposed by the court rules and etiquette. I doubt many understood how Burr's character stood up.

In playing the lead in the long-running Perry Mason series, Raymond Burr typecast himself so effectively and permanently such that it was impossible to play another lawyer save the incredible perry mason.
