Perry Mason


Raymond Burr as Perry Mason and Barbara Hale as Della StreetPerry Mason produced over 271 episodes for CBS. It started its run September 21, 1957 and ended September 4, 1966.

For nine seasons the famous defense attorney solved murder cases in the courtroom. Assisting him in solving those complex puzzles was his personal investigator, Paul Drake and his secretary Della Street. Paul Drake, archetypal P.I., ran the Drake Detective Agency. Tall,athleticand handsome, we never really knew his background. Perhaps if he were around today he would be pursuing his online criminal justice degree as well as chasing bad guys.

Perry Mason CastPerry seemed to put together the facts at the very last minute to solve those puzzling cases. His adversary was District Attorney Hamilton Burger, whom he would outshine each and every week. The outcome each episode was certainly predictable but nonetheless entertaining. Mason never lost a case which made DA Burger that more determined to beat Perry one time.
