Did You Know?

Goofs

When Sally Fenner is being chased by the watchman and his dog, the two initial camera shots show her to be about 4 seconds ahead. In the third shot, taken from off shore show her to be about 8 seconds ahead. It was unlikely that she was able to gain 4 additional seconds on the man and his dog. See more »

Did you see what Paul and I caught?

Work follows Perry Mason wherever he goes. While on a fishing trip he and Paul Drake spot a woman being chased into the water by a man with a gun and a guard dog who goes in after her. It turns out to be Peggie Castle and William Hopper has to go in after her. Later on her employer, the rich and arrogant David Lewis is murdered that night in fact he was dead in the house while she was looking for an unsigned note that accused him of murdering his aunt several months before. She has the note and Raymond Burr has her as a client. Talk about fishing for clients.

This was not one of the better Masons. In fact all that David Lewis had to do was throw beachcomber James Griffith out on his ear when he came with an unsigned note to his place asking for blackmail money. I'm still not sure why he didn't. The real murderer is rather obvious in this one and that's my Perry Mason rule, no surprise it's below average.
