Tv show about a lawyer
The Perry Mason TV Show Book: The Complete Story of Americas Favorite Television Lawyer by Brian KelleherAs a passionate fan of televisions 1950s/1960s mystery/courtroom drama series PERRY MASON, I loved this book. I watch an episode every day (have them on tape)and it never gets old.
This book covers the background of the books that inspired the series and their author Earle Stanley Gardner who was a real life lawyer who went into full time writing and who was co-producer of the show. The way the program was cast, detailed chapters about cast members, and a handy episode guide along with juicy behind the scenes details and wonderful old photos kept me enthralled. Imagine the stiff necked District Attorney Hamilton Burger played by actor William Talman at a naked party smoking marijuana. Cant picture it? Well, that is ALL I can picture after reading how actor William Talman was arrested in a raid on a party he attended where everyone was puffing marijuana cigarettes while buck naked. I would have loved to have seen a photo of THAT! He was unfairly fired by a prudish CBS network from the Perry Mason show even before being found not guilty by a judge who said he personally wouldnt want to attend such a party but that there was nothing illegal about sitting around in a private living room naked. He was blacklisted by Hollywood until Raymond Burr and his castmates and the producers including Gardner started a campaign that drew hundreds of thousands of protest letters to CBS and he returned to a warm welcome and to find that Mason and the cast refused to let his coffee mug be moved from their famous mug shelf.
If you like the show, youll love this. If you like strong women youll love this. The main producer even back then was a woman!
