Charlie Rose asked Raymond Burr why Perry Mason ran for 9 years. Raymond replied that people are interested in "our form of justice" and that minorities saw it as "their show" because PM prominently featured Asian, Black, & Female characters (PM 50th Anniversary Edition Special Features). Mike Bedard 2.5.15.
+ And in addition to the Asian-American characters, we had a return -- after months -- to having an African American courtroom spectator. Submitted by catyron, July 13th, 2018

"Nightwatch 10-16-1985" Interviewer CR: "What was the MAGIC of it?" RB: "The audience wanted to believe in our court system...still the best in the world...It was even an important show in foreign countries where they have the Napoleonic Code rather than the Anglo-Saxon code...some of the shows in the United States helped change the laws in those countries." Mike Bedard 2.23.15.

Douglas Henderson (Frank Jones)is best known for another role with Cold War associations in "The Manchurian Candidate".

There certainly is a lot of admiralty law and shipping regulations to keep straight, but this episode is a welcome switch from our last, and possibly worst, episode "TCOT Grinning Gorilla". DOD 3/8/18
