After 30 years building up his furniture manufacturing business, Axel Norstaad has decided to retire. He's also decided to donate the proceeds of the dale to the building of a children's hospital in his community. Norstaad's products are renowned for their quality and craftsmanship and he thinks he's found the right man to keep up the tradition. Nothing could be further from the truth. The buyer is a con man who is out to make whatever he can out of business and then walk away. He's soon ordering cut-rate raw materials and aiming for volume sales a t low prices trading on the company's reputation to make a quick killing. When he is found dead, Axel Norstaad is charged with murder and his lawyer Perry Mason defends him. Written by
Typical Perry Mason Thriller, but Plot is Illogical
The plot in this case is completely illogical. Axel sells his business to someone who plans to use the profits to build a children's hospital. When Axel finds out that is not the case, he gets so mad he publicly threatens to murder the buyer, and of course, when the buyer is found dead, Axel is the one arrested. But let's think about this. If the business is so profitable that there are enough profits to build a children's hospital, why didn't Axel keep the business and apply the profits himself? Why is it okay for Axel to sell the business (presumably at a profit) and then criticize the buyer for attempting to do the same? What reasonable buyer would purchase a business merely to give away the profits?
Oh well, the lead in does not have to make sense. As long as someone gets killed, and Perry's client is accused of the murder, we get to see Perry do his stuff. Will he be able to get Axel off? Or will this be the case that Perry loses? Watch the show yourself and find out!
