Trivia

There was a character called Laurel Kent who was a member of the Legion of Superheroes. She was invulnerable and was supposed to be Superman's direct descendant; later, in the 90s, she was depicted as actually having been a Manhunter robot who was awakened later than she should have been.

Goofs

Mr. Mason starts examining Mr. Griswold as a hostile witness, in an effort to challenge his alibi. In the middle of his examination, Mr. Mason lets his junior colleague, Mr. Malansky, continue the examination and introduce certain contrary evidence. Then Mr. Mason forcefully resumes his examination to impeach the witness' statement about being home at a certain hour. In actual court proceedings, whichever member of a multi-counsel team opens with a witness, that attorney alone continues with that witness until said witness is excused. Furthermore, should the team recall the witness, the original team member, and only the original team member, may examine the witness at that next time. See more »

A Woman Lies About Her Age
8 February 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

After her office safe is broken into and she takes the papers home, Morgan Fairchild announces she is marketing a new face cream and she is 62. That night, she is murdered after an apparent break-in. However, the police soon conclude that her husband, Patrick O'Neal did it. Unfortunately for them, Raymond Burr, aka Perry Mason is his old friend. So we know that there will be many red herrings dragged across the trail and the real killer will confess on the witness stand.

Although the question of whodunnit is not as obscure as better entries into the TV Movie series, the red herrings are top notch, including Polly Bergen, Tippi Hendren and a surprisingly funny turn by David Warner. The chief red herring, however, is played by Lauren Lane as a slippery woman who seems have been a private investigator working for Miss Fairchild. It's pleasant to see some good acting, even if the mystery is not what it might have been.
