Some Perry Mason backgrounds to play with. From "The Case of the Lucky Legs," season 3, air date Dec. 19 1959. I picked this episode because of the nourish shot below. This was about the last season where the scripts stayed close to Erle Stanley Gardner's concept of Mason, who was more than a bit of a rogue.
Deader'n hell, as my railroad cop father would say. Anyhow, for backgrounds, first we have some little (probably) California town masquerading as Cloverdale, Utah:
Then the establishing shot:
which just screams This is the City. Los Angeles, California. Oops, wrong show. Now here's Mason's office building:
and then the obligatory seedy hotel:
and finally a more posh establishment:
After the scriptwriters settled in the show was as stylized as a Noh drama. This led to the Perry Mason Drinking Game. The questions, in order, are:
1. Who Gets Killed?
2. Who Gets Falsely Accused?
3. Who Did It?
4. How Did Perry Know?
Bonus question, which may be answered out of sequence: Is the killer's confession a bang ("I could have killed him a hundred times") or a whimper ("I- I had to do it. Don't you understand, I had to do it.")
