Entertaining Perry Mason show
10 May 2013 | by fraudcopSee all my reviews

The plot of the show involved a murder occurring in Las Vegas, Nevada and a trial being held there. The courtroom scenes were actually filmed in the Municipal Court building of the City of Aurora, Colorado. The exteriors of the court building were filmed there also. A huge wooden duplicate of the Seal of the State of Nevada was hung over the marble City of Aurora seal that was hanging in a stairwell. The jail scenes were filmed in the newly constructed Aurora City Jail, which was not completed and at that time had no prisoners. The suspect in this play was the very first person to be "held" in the jail. Numerous detectives and other police personnel on their lunch hours, observed the filming from a second floor balcony. The hotel scenes were filmed in downtown Denver.
