Storyline

An old flame of Mason's is one of those being considered to fill a vacated government position. Now, her husband's approached by a man who says he knows his wife's secret and that if this secret should ever get out, her appointment might not push through. So, he offers to sell the information he has to him. So, when he goes to him, he finds him dead, and he is arrested for the crime and placed on trial, and Perry's asked to defend him. And Perry also suspects that the dead was hired by one of his friend's friends to steal the evidence of her secret so that they could expose it and sabotage her appointment, and in all likelihood is the killer.

Perry Mason comes to the aid of an old flame's husband
2 April 2006 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

Of the series of TV-movies based on the Erle Stanley Gardner creation, as well as the popular television drama from the 50's and 60's, this is one of the best. Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale continue with their famous roles of Perry and his girl Friday, Della Street, assisted by William Katt (Hale's real-life son) as the detective son of Paul Drake, played in the original by the late William Hopper.

In this teleflick, Mason must defend Gene Barry who plays the husband of Jean Simmons, a Congressional hopeful and former love of the robust attorney. Because of the additional time alloted this presentation, there is a bit of action with Katt's character being the "leg man" that must get out in the field and drum up evidence that will prove Burr's client innocent.

With a cast of old pros like this one has, along with television stalwarts David Ogden Stiers ("M*A*S*H*"), Gordon Jump ("WKRP in Cincinnati"), Jonathan Banks ("Wiseguy"), and Robert Mandan ("Soap"), this is one of the better acted of the film series that ran for nine years, culminating with the death of Burr.

Though it plods along at times, the movie still holds the interest, all the way up to the surprising denouement.
