Secrets of the Desert
16 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Bill Tallman, who lost all those cases to Perry Mason, is holding forth in a Southern California desert. He has taken over the reins of a man who was doing research into methods of creating water in the desert. Unfortunately, the scientist has died, so Tallman calls in Peter Gunn (Craig Stevens), whose former love of his life, is back at the facility. You see, she jilted Stevens because the researcher had considerably more money and a future. There's conflict all over the place. There's also an old desert rat that drives a weird looking vehicle who pretty much knows the score. It's likely the scientist was murdered, but proof isn't easily available. This is more of story about the old eternal triangle than real science and, as such, not particularly interesting. The scientific explanations are strained at best.
