Storyline

Just prior to her death, family patriarch Bebe Brent leaves her nurse Hetty Randall a certified check for $1 million. She entrusted the check to her lawyer Justin Grover, but Hetty's never received it and her daughter Madeline asks Perry Mason to look into it. Madeline learns the truth from her fiancé Reed Brent, Bebe's son, and she quickly makes an appointment to see Grover and find out what he is up to. When Grover is killed in a house fire that same night, Madeline is charged with murder and Perry defends her. Perry wants to know why Bebe would have left such a large sum to a nurse, but Hetty refuses to tell him. Written by garykmcd

Classic Mason
4 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I found this episode to be typical Perry Mason. Not the greatest script but a show you wanted to watch till the end.

Had all the Mason story lines with a theft, arson, burglary and of course the murder. And you even get the witness stand confession to tie all the parts together.

The eye candy of Sherry Jackson made me long for the early 60's all over again. From the one piece swimwear to the unbrushed and soot filled hair, the camera was nice to Ms Jackson. It also must have rubbed off on Della. In this episode she is always wearing the finest outfits and the lighting on her makes her stand out in ways not seen on many "Perry Mason" shows.

In one of the most cheesy performances, Paul acts like a studio talent scout and sweet talks a secretary for a film role. Not one of William Hopper's finest moments. But it ties in somewhat at the end so it is easily forgiven.

Overall a good watch. If you like "Perry Mason" then this episode will give you your fill.
