Trivia

When this film was repeated on April 22, 1994 as an NBC Friday Mystery special, the final 15 minutes were chopped off (in the Eastern and Central time zones) for a special report on the death of former President Richard Nixon. First-time viewers never learned the killer's identity. See more »

Goofs

When ditsy fan Peg first asks actress Kris for her autograph, they are outside a brick building with signs along the side. The first (green) sign reads "A Stream To Wide", a grammatical error. It should either read "A Stream Too Wide" or "A Stream To Wade". See more »

Crazy Credits

At the end of the film, the words 'DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF RAYMOND BURR 1917-1993' appear on the screen just as the end credits roll. See more »

Reasonable enough entry in the series - a typical way for Burr to bow out
21 December 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

On the set of a popular daytime soap opera `Mile High', actress Kris Buckner is being forced off by co-star Mark Stratton. When she says that she'll `kill him before she leaves the show', she makes herself the prime suspect when Stratton is murdered by someone poisoning him. As an old friend, Perry Mason comes to the help of Kris and agrees to defend her. Meanwhile Ken goes in search of information with the help of fan of the show.

The final Perry Mason film which starred Burr in the title role, this is a fairly typical entry in the series that gives the audience all we would usually expect from the films. The plot is OK but it seems a little bit more forced than in other films in the series. The film enjoys poking fun at the soap opera types - although not as gleefully as I would have expected a TVM series to have done!

Mason does his usual stuff - ripping through TV actors in small roles as red herrings etc. Burr is good in the role as one would expect from someone in the role for so long. Moses has his usual stuff to do - chasing thugs with an useless female sidekick, but it is a little lame this time and the autograph hunter is very irritating. The supporting cast contains nobody of note and none of them really excel themselves, just delivering by-the-numbers performances.

Overall Mason fans will like this because it goes through the formula well and has all the usual stuff. The lack of stronger actors and characters in the support cast is a problem, but essentially the film does what all it's predecessors have done - deliver the usual story in a build up to an average scene of minor fireworks where the real killer is revealed.
