Shared Photo: Perry Mason, starring Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale

+10 votes

I wanted to share this studio photo of Raymond Burr and Barbara Hale with the community. It is a scene from their long-running television series, Perry Mason—which I grew up on as a child thanks to reruns and my mother's propensity for lawyer shows.  These two had such charisma and cheerful chemistry on film.  When Burr was approached in the 1980's to do a few made-for-tv Perry Mason movies, he agreed with the stipulation that Barbara Hale reprise her role as Della Street.  She did more than that, she brought her actor son, |William Katt, into the cast to play Paul Drake (Mason's investigator) Jr., son of the original character from the show.

This photo just brings back happy memories of my childhood and nostalgia for the days when drama was not quite so personally dramatic.  :)

I enjoyed it also.
I have frequently been asked if I was related to the actor, but no, however, my 6th grade teacher, Patricia Hale, was, as I recall, Barbara's sister-in-law. How about that?
I love the incidences of those kinds of twists. They make the world so interesting!
