4.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining ! 17 Dec 2011
By Kim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cars, the interiors, the women's clothes and hairstyles, the theme music, the teamwork, and the stories. As with all long series, the episodes are not of uniform standard. The best episodes are really good. Raymond Burr is such a star!

Region Free for this series would be better as Region Free DVD players get harder to purchase. However, a great series well worth watching. Fine acting with good story lines.

I have found this series from series 1 so far very relaxing and comfortable to watch. How clean everything was in america in the 1960s. Definately worth watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 24 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have reviewed many of these Perry Mason episodes and this one is every bit as good as the others. Exceptionally good value for what are in effect short, stylish thrillers - tons of them in one box set after another. I can't praise them highly enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perry, Della, and Paul, Back at It 16 April 2009
By Bobby Underwood - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Perry Mason is as much a part of American culture as apple pie and mom. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone of any age who doesn't at least recognize the name. Erle Stanley Gardner's books have millions of devoted fans. The television show it spawned was fabulous as entertainment, and today is widely regarded as one of the best shows the medium ever produced. Perry was the attorney you wanted on your side in a jam.

Raymond Burr had some good roles in films, but will always be remembered as Perry Mason. It was Gardner himself who picked Burr, even though the studio only agreed to let him test for Perry if he would test for Burger too! Barbara Hale was his pretty secretary, Della Street, who kept Perry human and was in love with him. William Hopper was the dapper detective, Paul Drake. He had a playful and flirtatious relationship with Della but every viewer knew that secretly her heart belonged to Perry.

William Talman as D.A. Hamilton Burger would almost be ready to gloat, Lt. Tragg (Ray Collins) not far behind, when Perry would spring his client by revealing the real killer on the witness stand. There has never been anything close to it in genre on television since. Its mix of drama, noir, and humor, and its truly likable characters, made for terrific viewing.

Season four was terrific. Releasing them in half seasons, the first half on volume one, the second on volume two, is indeed an effective but annoying marketing scheme. I agree the price should be lowered, but at the same time agree that entertainment wise, this is an incredible value. So, much like gasoline, you pay what you have to. Hopefully at some point, Amazon or Paramount will make an effort to still make a profit with a sure-fire hit, while giving fans a better purchase price.

Season four episodes, beginning in September of 1960 and ending in June of 1961, are as follows: The Case of the Treacherous Toupee--The Case of the Credulous Quarry--The Case of the Ill-Fated Faker--The Case of the Singular Double--The Case of the Lavender Lipstick--The Case of the Wandering Widow--The Case of the Clumsy Clown-- The Case of the Provocative Protege--The Case of the Nine Dolls--The Case of the Loquacious Liar--The Case of the Red Riding Boots--The Case of the Larcenous Lady--The Case of the Envious Editor--The Case of the Resolute Reformer--The Case of the Fickle Fortune--The Case of the Waylaid Wolf--The Case of the Wintry Wife --The Case of the Angry Dead Man--The Case of the Blind Man's Bluff--The Case of the Barefaced Witness--The Case of the Difficult Detour--The Case of the Cowardly Lion--The Case of the Torrid Tapestry--The Case of the Violent Vest--The Case of the Misguided Missile--The Case of the Duplicate Daughter--The Case of the Grumbling Grandfather--The Case of the Guilty Clients

This was one of the best dramas ever to hit the air. Seeing it today reminds us just how good television can be, but is often not. It's a bit of nostalgia and a lot of entertainment for TV fans. Fred Steiner's "Park Avenue Beat" remains one of the most recognizable themes ever heard. A must for any serious collector.

1.0 out of 5 stars This just gets worse and worse 31 Mar 2009
By B. Sloane - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I guess Paramount thinks Perry Mason fans will wait any length of time and pay any price for these half-season sets. It's ironic, since nearly all the best PM episodes are from the first two seasons; by the fourth, the actors, writing and directing all slow down considerably. That snappy noir-ish dialogue is gone, along with the incomparable Ray Collins as Lt. Tragg (Collins' successors were uniformly colorless).

It should also be pointed out that while the DVD transfer quality is excellent, these are NOT COMPLETE episodes! I own many Perry Mason tapes on VHS (the Columbia House series), and in several cases a brief scene from the VHS version is missing from the DVD. There is simply no excuse for this.

Given the incomplete episodes, and Paramount's usurious pricing policy, I would recommend all Perry Mason fans wait to buy any more DVD's until they are available used.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamilton Burger gone missing 3 Sep 2009
By Christine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
They should release these DVD's faster! Part 1 of Season 4 was as good as always, with guest appearances of all sorts of up actors on their way up (or down). Sort of like the Love Boat of the 50/60's.

For those of you who want to know where Hamilton Burger is during Season 4, Part 1 (he only appears in one episode) - here is an excerpt from Wikipedia.....

"William Talman was fired from Perry Mason for a short period. Sheriff's deputies suspicious of marijuana use raided a party in a private home in Beverly Hills, at which Talman was a guest, on March 13, 1960. The deputies reported finding Talman and other defendants in the nude. Even though a morals charge was made against Talman (and vagrancy charges and lewd conduct against others at the party), municipal judge Adolph Alexander dismissed the charge against Talman on June 18. "I don't approve of their conduct," the judge ruled, "but there has been no violation of the law established." Despite this, Talman was fired when a "morals" clause was invoked in his contract--producers were afraid this incident would damage the show's image. However, Raymond Burr and the rest of the cast demanded the CBS network rehire Talman, and there was a deluge of fan mail demanding his reinstatement. CBS ultimately did bring him back on the set in December, 1960. But the incident (and possibly his typecasting as the never-ending loser Hamilton Burger) somewhat damaged Talman's career--other than Perry Mason he worked very infrequently as an actor from then on."

And CBS DVD/Paramount/or whoever owns the rights to this series - step up your release schedule.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expensive but worth it 25 Mar 2009
By Scott A. Huguley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
No doubt the price for this half season release is high and raises the eyebrows of potential buyers. I think we must assume that this price increase is the result of low sales volumes on previous releases. I don't like the price but I would rather have the DVD's at the higher price than no release at all. Please don't let the Perry Mason series follow the lead of Ironside where the studio released two season and then quit!

5.0 out of 5 stars Really enjoyable 11 July 2009
By Stephen D. Lecher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Have to agree with others here who have written how excellent this batch of stories are. They are believable, well acted, and don't seem nearly as dated as a show from 1960 should be. The stories are clever in many instances and the ways Perry is brought into these situations are really well done.

I have no problem paying $34.99 for this set. I have all the Perry Mason sets released to date and I want the rest of these episodes and I want them soon.

Thank you.
