There are few actors so closely tied to a persona than Raymond Burr as Perry Mason . Perry Mason is a long-running series built upon Erle Stanley Gardner´s many novels about a brilliant defense lawyer and his staff, who solved many a crime with surprise witnesses and stern cross-examinations. The cases are usually won by way of pivotal confessions of witnesses, solicited by Perry Mason 's surgeon-like examination or with last-minute, key evidence brought into the courtroom by private investigator, Paul Drake (William Hopper). Della Street (Barbara Hale), Perry´s faithful secretary, is always at Perry's side in the courtroom where hapless Hamilton Burger (William Tallman) is the Los Angeles District Attorney who never seems to win.
