Storyline

John Kenyon returns from a European trip with a lovely young Greek woman in tow. He is an accomplished sculptor and his new find, Theba, is going to be the model for his next work, a life-sized statue. Along with them is Theba's mother Cleo Gammas. For Kenyon however, Theba is far more than simply a model as he has quite fallen in love with the girl and hopes to marry her. He even consults Perry Mason on how he might be able to send Cleo packing back to Greece. Perry tells him to simply marry her. Neither his servant George Spangler or his writer friend Dan O'Malley think Kenyon has any business or chance with Theba. In addition, Cleo repeatedly takes Theba out where she has Theba meet other men nor will she give Kenyon time alone with Theba. When Cleo is found dead however, Kenyon is charged with murder and Perry defends him. Written by garykmcd

Seems like the entire cast had their passport stamped in Greece
7 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

For an episode that started out so hopeful and interesting- it seemed to lose some interest near the end.

It begins as we see an middle aged artist named John Kenyon (John Larkin) coming back home from a trip to Greece. He brings with him a nice looking young Greek woman named Theba (Marianna Hill) and her mother Cleo (Faith Domerque).

John is using Theba as a model for his new sculpture, Theba does not know it but the older John is falling in love with Theba. But John is having a problem with Theba's mother, Cleo.

Seems Theba obeys everything Cleo asks. And Cleo appears to be setting up dates for Theba against John's wishes. This causes a heated discussion between John and Cleo where John cuts Cleo with a artist tool.

The next scene we see is a passer-by calling the police saying he just saw someone drag a women to the cliff and throw here into the ocean. But who can it be? Only after an investigation do they find Cleo's body

  • but the body was found in John's house not in the ocean. So in come


Perry to defend John for the murder of Cleo.

During the trial we find out that some people are not exactly who they claim to be. Also stories begin to unwind as Paul Drake begins finding information concerning stories that were told to the police. Which leads Perry to find the true murderer during a courtroom confession.

The story started out so interesting but seemed to stall near the middle. When the writers introduced a dead man in Greece the story began to lose some of the interest. It seemed to get complicated when we see that nearly the entire cast had visited Greece within the last few years.

It was a fine episode but nothing that really makes it stand out from others in the series.

Note- Lt Tragg (Ray Collins) returns after being absent for the last few shows. Mr Collins appeared to have lost some weight and was beginning to look frail. It was obvious that Mr Collins was sick at this point in the series. ---Also the episode that I watched seemed faded at times. Right at the beginning of the court scene it appeared that they pieced scenes together from different stock. Some were extremely light while others were dark. And at times where we went to a new scene, the actors were already talking. Maybe they were cutting some commercial out or perhaps I got a bad copy. Either way it was much more pronounced in my copy of this episode.
