Best Deception Ever ****
16 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best Perry Mason films ever made. There is no question about it.

Who would ever think that the murderer turned out to be a Simon Wiesenthal like character?

Even though, he has his usual girl-flirting William R. Moses is excellent here. He certainly takes on a more serious tone in a movie dealing with the holocaust.

The constant twists in the plot are wonderfully exercised. Teresa Wright gives a memorable performance as a holocaust victim. Her chilling experience at the Maidanek Concentration Camp is excellently shown.

As always, there are so many people that you can accuse of the murder here? There was deception all around here but deception in this film was never better.
