US marine officer Captain David Berman (Tim Ryan) has been arrested for
killing a former Nazi SS officer called Dieter Krugman, whom was living
in Paris in the guise of a successful businessman called Felix Altmann.
The prosecution has a strong case against the defendant because it was
well known among his friends that he had an obsession with tracking
down Krugman as his mother Helene (Teresa Wright) is a survivor from a
Nazi death camp in which she saw her two brothers murdered by Krugman
before her very eyes. Helene is also a close friend of Perry Mason and
she persuades him to fly to Paris and prove her son innocent. Mason
believes Berman to be innocent because he tells both him and his mother
that he wanted to have Krugman arrested and tried under the Crimes
Against Humanity Law, which doesn't suggest he wanted to kill him.
Nevertheless, that is not enough to win his case. But Mason soon
discovers that Altmann's wife Danielle (Yvette Mimieux) has a strong
motive for wanting her husband dead because she was having an affair
with one of his former employees Andre Marchand (Ian McShane) and
needed her inheritance to support his business interests. In addition,
Mason has a mysterious Nazi hunter called Otto Rosen (Ian Bannen) to
investigate whom refuses to fully explain why he conducts his
activities in hiding rather than with the public, which most other Nazi
THE CASE OF THE DESPERATE DECEPTION is one of Burr's better latter day
movies as Perry Mason, which is easily his most celebrated role.
Between 1985-93 he returned to the role over twenty times in a series
of made for TV movies. These varied in quality with several suffering
from lacklustre scripts, which threw clues at us out of nowhere with no
real insight as to how Mason solved them. In addition, the running time
was often padded out since the films more often than not were far too
long for their plots with the exploits of Mason's sidekick Ken Malansky
(William R Moses) who often raced around the States trying to track
down a missing witness that was vital to his employer's case with a few
fights and car chases thrown in.
Here, however, we have a stronger plot line than usual and George
Eckstein's script doesn't just dream up clues out of nowhere and the
story moves neatly and logically to its conclusion. It also makes a
nice change to see Malansky's part used more effectively, in which the
car chases are abandoned in favour of more straight detective work as
not to confuse the plot. Raymond Burr is enjoyable as always especially
in his courtroom scenes as he grills the real guilty party at the
witness stand and we also have a better supporting cast than usual with
veteran British actor Ian Bannen who is very good as Otto Rosen. Teresa
Wright offers a sympathetic portrayal as Helene Berman who has to
relive her horrifying memories of the concentration camp in order to
help Perry Mason prove her son's innocence.
