Storyline

Eula Johnson wants her husband Grover to sell the 1000 acres they've bought. Their lawyer, Willard Hupp, hasn't had much luck in finding them a buyer but Grover is less than keen to dispose of the property for too low a price. They suddenly seem to have struck gold when an affable and apparently wealthy Texan, Nelson Barclift, offers them a ridiculously high amount for the property. It's all a scam of course, cooked up by Eula, to get an insurance policy paid off after an untimely death. Insurance investigator Walter Jeffries has been looking into the highly suspicious claim but when Eula is found strangled, it's Grover who is charged with murder and Perry Mason defends him.

In this episode you have land, a mortgage and a get rich scheme which always lands someone in hot water. And the script is written where everyone could be a suspect. Heck, even Perry had some interest in the shenanigans going on outside of LA county.

Alan Hale Jr does a good job making his role larger than life and comes across more believable than any one in the cast. You also have character actor, Parley Baer, (Mayor Roy Stoner from "The Andy Griffith Show") who appears in more shows in the 60's and 70's than most appear in a life time. He is actually a good fit for the role that he has been cast.

The script seem to be a little confusing near the end when we are asked to keep up with teeth and dentist visits. But it true "Perry Mason" flavor it all comes together in the end.

Rated the show a 7 - more for the ending than anything else. Because the crime was nearly fail proof. Then along comes Perry.
