A really nasty tempered drunken individual in Beau Starr crashes the wedding of his nephew and confronts the father of the bride over some ancient grudges. He gets cold cocked and put to rest on a coach. But later on Starr is found with a knife in his chest and the would be bride, Heather McAdam standing over him.
Heather's a reigning pop star like Jessica Simpson and she's marrying her own Nick Lachey in Adam Storke. But there's a whole host of suspects. However she's got one thing in her corner an 'uncle' who's a well known attorney and who never loses a case.
This is one of the few times where we get a hint of a relationship with Perry Mason and someone else. This never happened in the hour television series back in the day. Of course he's not a biological uncle, but you can draw your own conclusion as to what happened way back when with Raymond Burr and McAdam's parents, Ronny Cox and Diane Baker.
I found this film, one of the weaker Perry Mason stories. Had it not been for the bride and her fame and the fact that she was found with the body, the real motive of the crime would have been apparent from the start and the police in the person of James McEachin would have focused their attention in the right direction.
Still I do love my Perry Mason stories so.
