A victim who's supposed to be dead
23 May 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this Perry Mason mystery, Raymond Burr's client is Mark Moses who is the husband of a Christina Faust whom he catches fooling around with the victim David Soul. A victim who's supposed to be dead.

Soul is a painter who decided that he's not going to wait for posterity for acclaim for his work. He fakes his own death and stays in Mexico for five years and with the help of art dealer John Rhys-Davies sells his work at a considerable profit.

On a trip to Denver Soul comes out of hiding when he sees a copy of one of his paintings and rips it to shreds denouncing it as a fraud. Seems as though someone has been taking advantage of his 'demise' which like Mark Twain's proves exaggerated.

Not for long though when Soul winds up really dead Mark Moses as the jilted husband zooms to the top of the list of suspects.

In the Mason feature films I used to like how first William Katt and later Billy Moses used to get a lot more physical than William Hopper did on the TV series. Billy Moses has a real nice fight with another artist Scott Valentine with Valentine using a chain saw. Valentine isn't wrapped too tight and he's clearly a suspect.

Turns out two of the cast were in on the real demise of David Soul. You figure out which two.
