Geraldo: Fact or Fiction
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Following a similar tell-all book authored by television personality Geraldo Rivera, this entry in the Perry Mason movie series blurs fact and fiction by casting Rivera as Ted Mayne, who is murdered after publishing his own scandalous tone. The suspect is a TV actress, who makes the mistake of blowing off steam over the book by threatening Mayne's life on camera.

Enter Perry Mason, who uses his usual methods to uncover the true killer in open court.

This is an average Mason film, with, a final clue, though plausible, seems too over the top to be believed, requiring the guilty party to go "mad" on the stand to pull it off.

The supporting cast is good, with Geraldo giving a surprisingly effective performance as Ted Mayne.
