Trivia

This is the first Perry Mason mystery filmed after Raymond Burr's Death. Tony Caruso, Paul Sorvino's role, was named after the actor Anthony Caruso; the writers combined his part with Burr's rather than recasting the Perry Mason role, as a tribute. See more »

Mr. Caruso as Perry Mason-Interesting ***1/2
13 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With the passing of Raymond Burr, Paul Sorvino stepped into the brilliant lawyer's part with interesting results. Sorvino proved his resourcefulness here but did we have to have the opera singing? We know that Sorvino, in real life, could hit the operatic notes but good, but that wasn't necessary here.

Still, we have a very good story with 4 ex-wives of a real cad coming together to work with the latter. Naturally, when the cad, played with relish by Eric Braeden, is murdered, suspicion falls on each of the women. Since his current wife was arguing with him over his latest flirtation, she is the one who is arrested.

That ending, as always, was totally unexpected but had the real Mason touch.

Barbara Hale looked like she was grieving here in her brief stint as Della Street. William R. Moses, Ken Malansky, had plenty of physical footwork here and is to be commended for great physical dexterity. Or, what there a stuntman involved?

Surprisingly, McEachin, who played the black detective always sarcastically involved in words with Mr. Mason, has none of that here and that is missed.
