Storyline

Kevin Parks was arrested and convicted for a murder of a woman and is trying to appeal for the second time when one of the first appeal lawyers, Perry, finds a new witness for the defence. The witness is threatened and then murdered to stop him giving his evidence and Perry, Della and Paul started to investigate. The main victim was very popular with the Airmen and was employed by a real estate company that was conducting a deal with the Base over a plot of land and this causes the amount of suspects and motives to rise. Paul tries to find the witness's killer and he and Capt. O'Malley are a threat to it's future... Written by Lee Horton <Leeh@tcp.co.uk>

Far Fetched Set Of Circumstances
27 July 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Perry Mason: The Case of the Avenging Ace is one of the more far fetched episodes where the murderer and the individual behind the murders will do anything, kill anybody to keep a particular family scandal from seeing the light of day.

If you remember in Perry Mason Returns, Raymond Burr was an appellate judge who resigned the bench to defend Della Street from a murder charge. This film begins with a flashback to those times on the bench where he votes to sustain a conviction for murder on procedural grounds of Larry Wilcox, a decorated Air Force colonel who allegedly murdered a woman he was allegedly involved with.

Fast forward to the present when a witness has come forward who on the day of the hearing reneges on his testimony under threat. Then Wilcox is busted out of jail and later the recanting witness is shot to death and Wilcox is found with murder weapon in hand.

This far fetched set of circumstances would defeat any lesser lawyer, but we're dealing with Perry Mason. You know this top gun will eventually be free of all charges, including the original murder that sent him up.

This particular Mason film I found a bit too bizarre for my taste, but fans of the series will love it.
