    Perry Mason Movie Collection: Volume Five

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on March 29th, 2016

    Perry Mason officially ended in May of 1966, but that wasn’t going to be the end. Twenty years later the surviving cast members reunited for Perry Mason Returns. It was Perry and Della back together again. Both Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale returned to their roles. William Hopper had died in 1970, so William Katt joined the reunion as Paul Drake, Jr. Katt might not have really been Drake’s son; he was Hale’s son. When Katt left the films he was replaced by William R. Moses as Ken Malansky. Ken was a young law student helped by Perry once when he was framed in law school for a rival’s murder. He ends up being both a legal assistant and investigator for Perry in the reunion films. The films also often starred James McEachin as Lt. Brock, the cop on many of the cases.

    Perry Mason Double Features

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on December 11th, 2014

    Erle Stanley Gardner wrote crime fiction, and while many of his 100 or so works are unknown to most of us, he created a character who has become as identified with criminal lawyers as any other in fiction. It was in these crime novels that Perry Mason first faced a courtroom. He developed a style where he would investigate these terrible crimes his clients were on trial for. He would find the real killer, and in what has become a Hollywood cliché, reveal his findings in a crucial moment during the trial. While we may not remember the novels, we all remember the man in the persona of Raymond Burr.

    Perry Mason: Season 9, Volume 2

    Posted in Disc Reviews by William O'Donnell on August 17th, 2013

    For nine seasons and several TV-movies afterwards, Raymond Burr was Los Angeles based defense attorney Perry Mason. This character’s verbal gymnastics, and uncanny hounding for evidence makes his famous winning streaks seem not just plausible but rather entertaining to behold. His adventures have been well-reviewed by myself and my reviewing compadre Gino on this very site (http://upcomingdiscs.com/?s=perry+mason).

    Perry Mason: The Seventh Season, Vol. 2

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on October 24th, 2012

    It’s hard to beat the last release for classic episodes of Perry Mason. I can assure you that Mason fans still have a lot of great episodes to look forward to with this release of the second part of the 7th season. You can bet that Perry will be up to his old tricks for a while to come thanks to these DVD releases from Paramount. Erle Stanley Gardner wrote crime fiction, and while many of his 100 or so works are unknown to most of us, he created a character who has become as identified with criminal lawyers as any other in fiction.

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 22nd, 2012

    Even the best have a bad day. Look at the cover art for the Perry Mason Season 7 Volume 1 release and you’ll see the unexpected newspaper headline: Burger Defeats Mason. No, this isn’t a Dewy Defeats Truman grand mistake. It happened, and you get that very episode in this rather historic Perry Mason release. This is one you are absolutely going to want to have in the collection. No Mason fan should be caught dead without it.

    Perry Mason: Season 4, Vol. 1

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on June 8th, 2009

    At this rate it’s going to be quite some time before you complete your collection. I’m not even sure that DVD will still be a viable format before the end of the series on DVD. It’s another half season, and the episodes continue to fly at us at a snail’s pace. But, slow and steady wins the race, and as long as the quality episodes continue to deliver that classic Mason charm and style, I guess folks like us will continue to come back for more.

    Perry Mason: Season 3, Vol. 1

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on August 21st, 2008

    There was some speculation from folks out there, myself included, that Paramount might be backing away from future releases of the popular legal show. This was sparked by a 50th anniversary release that did included episodes from the 3rd season onward, making it look like a catch-all effort. It was loaded with extras, which these collections have not been. I’m happy to report that, at least for now, these sets appear slated to continue. With the first half of the 3rd season Perry Mason continues, unfortunately in these double grab half sets.

    Perry Mason (50th Anniversary Edition)

    Posted in Disc Reviews by Gino Sassani on April 25th, 2008

    If you’re a fan of Perry Mason you need to approach this 50th Anniversary collection with mixed feelings. With no new announcements of future season or half season releases, this set does have the look of finality to it. The last set was the second half of season 2 released November of 2007. With this commorative release you get 12 episodes spread out from the remaining seasons starting with the third. While Paramount has made no such announcement, I get the feeling the powers that be are at least pondering the idea of stopping the run.
