Raymond Burr - Perry Mason - passed on last week.

Asked why Burger (his courtroom opponant) never won a case, William
Talman, the actor who played him, sometimes replied, "I'm trying,
lady." Asked whether he ever lost, Mr. Burr, too, had a ready reply.
"Of course I did," he liked to say. "We just never filmed those."

Once asked later in his life (when Burr was rather, um rotund, and had
pronounced difficulty breathing) by Johnny Carson..."Raymond--why do you
breathe like that?" Burr's reply was
"...to live."

Actually, Burger *did* win a case against Mason. But Mason found new
evidence and got the case retried in the next show, and then he prevailed.

FWIW: Erle Stanley Gardner, author of the Perry Mason books and co-producer
of the TV show, wrote the books while living a ranch close to my current
home. You may notice that the shows are credited to "Paisano Productions,"
which derives from his ranch, Rancho del Paisano (please, Spanish speakers,
don't blame me -- I'm just reporting it). The property was bought by the
nearby Pechanga Band of Luiseño Indians several years ago and incorporated
into their reservation.

It's interesting that a total screw up on my part is quite an
interesting thread! This is probably Murphy's law.

On the musical side of things, the Perry Mason theme tune must be my
all-time favourite TV theme tune.

Who also did the Bullwinkle theme, I believe. And other good title music.

Many Perry Mason shows have Bernard Herrmann scores. These were not
specifically composed for those shows, but were extracted from several
hundred short cues Herrmann wrote for the CBS music library.

Other good TV themes from long ago:

All the Twilight Zone themes
Combat!
Checkmate
The Untouchables
Alfred Hitchcock's (Funeral March of a Marionette)


And, being a sap for a good melody, I like these as well:

Davy Crockett (King of the Wild Frontier)
Lawman
Sugarfoot
Rawhide
The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp
Adventures in Paradise
Highway Patrol

Only in the original orchestration -- when they made all of those Perry
Mason movies later on, they re-orchestrated the theme a la Nelson Riddle
and took a lot of the punch out of it.

I remember seeing that ad. Shattering: I have never been able to forget

memory of William Tallman speaking sub specie mortis would have stopped
me--or so I like to think.

Likewise, I never smoked, but I do remember that ad.

There's an interesting story about him on IMDB. He was the sadistic
murderer in the original movie "The Hitchhiker." Once, he was riding
in a convertible stopped at an intersection. The man in the next car
asked him if he was "the Hitchhiker." When Tallman nodded yes, the man
got out and slapped him across the face.

Tallman said that was the closest he ever got to getting an Academy
Award.

One award the writers or Tallman might have received
is for coming up with the best "objection" when you
can't think of anything else. Believe it or not, several
professional publications recommend his "Objection,
Your Honor. This is highly unusual."

Not 'in light of' anything. It indicated to Tallman that he acted the
part so believably that at least one person confused him with it.
That's the sort of thing that happened to Robert Mitchum (though some
of his contemporaries said that RM mostly played himself). Then there
were the things that happened to the Three Stooges - but that's
another story.

I'm sure it's simply a matter of "ACTING", nevertheless I still find it
remarkable that a guy who personally is such a s**t ever got close to

Well, there was that season where he was mysteriously replaced by "special

the ones implied in his anti-smoking ads.

Are you sure that you're not thinking of the (single) episode that opens

As for why Burger never won a case -- I'm surprised that anyone even
vaguely familiar with the level of competence of the prosecutors in
L.A. would possibly wonder about that. Heck, they couldn't convict
the Menendez brothers, who more or less murdered their parents and then
threw themselves on the mercy of the court because they were orphans.

You are correct: episode no. 185, "The Case of the Deadly Verdict," aired 17
Oct 1963.

Thank you for the link. I'm wondering why that collection is in Texas and
not here. Hmm. I think Gardner's old home is still standing, but the
property is not accessible by the general public. The Pechanga Indians
bought the ranch several years ago primarily to thwart a power-line project,
and an act of Congress (literally) was necessary to make it part of their
reservation. However, the ranch was part of their ancestral lands. Some
Californians may be familiar with TV ads extolling the virtues of the
Pechanga Indians. Some of the scenes were shot on Gardner's old ranch.

You'd be surprised at the amount of material in UT Austin's collections.
When Stephen Walsh was working on his Stravinsky set he came to Austin
before California, even though a California judge had awarded the
contested Stravinsky archives to a California school. Collections from a
large number of people who worked with Stravinsky wound up in Austin.

And, FWIW, in a library here at UT-Austin we have ESG's study from the
ranch. The room itself is a reconstruction, but the furnishings are
orginal: http://www.hrc.utexas.edu/exhibitions/permanent/
Thank you for the link. I'm wondering why that collection is in Texas and
not here.
Larry McMurtry once described UT's acquisition program as a giant vacuum
cleaner. All kinds of things unrelated to Texas or the University are
part of the collections, such as the David O. Selznick Archive, which
even includes costumes from "Gone With The Wind." A recent addition was
Woodward & Bernstein's papers from their Watergate reporting:

Perry did lose a case. It happened when he appeared on an episode of "The
Jack Benny Show."
