Perry Mason is the lead tutor for a module of a law degree set in a mock
classroom. His students include Ken Malansky and the Frank Wellman Jnr -
son of one of Perry's good friends. When he finds out that Frank raped
girlfriend, Ken storms into the mock courtroom (where Frank is practicing
his summation) only to find him dead. Giving his state and the situation,
Ken is arrested and charged. He turns to Perry for his defence, who
reluctantly agrees despite the impact on his friendship with Wellman Snr.
Meanwhile Ken investigates despite the `help' of his ex-girlfriend
For those who know the Perry Mason series and enjoy it, they will find
this film continues doing what it has always been doing. The formula is
in place - the investigation by Mason's sidekick, a girl involved in that
investigation, Mason's interviews, the court case and the eventual twist.
All this it does as well as it usually does (ie not great but reliable and
familiar) but it also adds some aspects to the mix. The element regarding
Mason's conflict with Frank Snr has potential but sadly it doesn't do
with it apart from put a plot twist into the middle of the film - but it
doesn't have the emotional clout that it should have had. The other thing
this film does is introduce to the series that character of Ken Malansky
a replacement for Paul Drake. The film uses him quite well, even if he is
less assured than he would become.
Ken, as Drake always did, is reluctantly paired with a woman as his
investigative partner. Here he has his ex girlfriend, Amy, with him - as
would for 3 or 4 films after this one. However her character is annoying
here - too snobbish, irritating and really difficult to like. The fact
someone is kooky can be an endearing thing but here her character is too
forceful and outside of the habits of polite (not rich) society. The only
thing that is good about her role is that Paul is an OK actress and is
on the eye. She is in the shadow of Moses though, who steps up to the
challenge of making his mark and securing his employment. Katt is a sad
loss to the series simply due to his family connection to the show, but I
enjoy Moses a little more - and he has better hair than Katt absurd
Mason does well but he doesn't step up to meet Brian Keith's more
input. Ken's class is badly served; I'm sure the actors could have done
well but I was surprised how little time they had on screen - Mason's
interviews took up less time than usual. None of them really make a mark
and, worse still, some of them really force their scenes, supposedly
they knew how little time they had to shine. The `oh look it's...' face
this time is Mark Rolston - not a famous name but you'll recognise him
many big films including Shawshank Redemption, Rush Hour, Robocop 2 and
Aliens - shame he is only given about 3 minutes of screentime!
Overall this is still a solid entry in the series (if you generally enjoy
the series). It doesn't do anything new above the formula but it has an
interesting (if poorly used) subplot involving Perry and it also sees
Malansky take over from Drake - however I would have preferred the film to
partner Malansky with Drake for this film (rather than Amy) and provide a
proper handover for the fans!
