Opening Arguments
19 March 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Silenced Singer, along with "The Lost Love" is perhaps the apex of the "Perry Mason" mystery series. While the plot follows the same tried and true formula, there seems to be an effort to evoke memories of the classic movie "Laura," with suspects remembering how murdered singer Terri Knight (a luminous Vanessa Williams) affected their lives. All this over a wistful soundtrack featuring several songs performed by Williams.

In this case, Perry Mason defends the husband of superstar singer Knight, who was murdered after a loud argument in front of witnesses. The trick for Mason is, that, although Terri had been cruel to members of her inner circle, they all loved her, each in their own way. So who would murder her?

The guest cast includes several TV favorites, like Tim Reid, Nia Peoples and Rex Smith and offers an early performance from Angela Bassett.

The resolution is unusual and almost tragic.

Really top notch!
