Perry Mason In The Picture
5 February 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

David Soul is an artist who faked his own death. He shows up and is killed hours later. Mark Moses is on trial for the murder. Fortunately, he is a friend to William Moses (no relation), Perry Mason's associate/investigator. With Raymond Burr on the case, we can be sure he is innocent and the real killer will confess on the witness stand.

It's a typically facile entry into the Perry Mason TV movie serious starring Raymond Burr as Erle Stanley Gardner's lawyer-sleuth, with Barbara Hale as Della Street. There are, as usual, several people whom to suspect, but as usual for the series, the final clue will be uncovered during the trial.

Other familiar faces include John Rhys-Davies as an art dealer and Kelly McGillis as the accused wife. Fans of the series will be pleased.
