From The Perry Mason TV Show Book (Revised)
Philip Larkin is found shot to death. His stepfather, Joseph Harrison, is the chief suspect. The two men quarreled over business and over a girl. In fact, a home movie shows the men fighting. Perry is called on to defend Harrison and delve into the familyís strange lineage.
Fay Wray, the woman who drove the big ape crazy in the 1933 monster classic King Kong, plays the defendantís wife in this episode. Nancy Kulp, Miss Jane of The Beverly Hillbillies, also appears.
Actress Virginia Field's "French/Italian" accent in several scenes is marvelously done and adds a great deal to this episode and shows her linguistic gifts.
