April 18, 1963 [178] "The Case of the Greek Goddess"

Director--Jesse Hibbs
Teleplay--Arthur Orloff, Robert Presnell, Sr., and Maurice Zimm
Story--Robert Presnell, Sr.

John Larkin, the actor who was the voice of Perry Mason on the original radio show, plays sculptor John Kenyon in this episode. Kenyon is a middle-aged man acting like a teenager. Senility? No, more like midlife crisis. He's in love. John has fallen for a Greek goddess--his young Greek model, Theba--and makes a statue of her to show his affection.

The statue ends up at the bottom of the ocean when John realizes that Theba's mother will not allow the shy girl to marry him and that Theba is spending time with a man her own age.

Theba's meddling mom, Cleo, is mysteriously murdered soon afterward, and John is spotted throwing what looks like a woman's body off a Cliff.

Can Perry get John out of what comes next? Academy Award winner George Kennedy also stars.
