Douglas Kennedy, a longtime friend of Burr's, was one of the most powerful of the myriad character actors to appear in Perry Mason - especially with his memorable performances in TCOT Moth-Eaten Mink from early in Season 1, and in TCOT Lucky Loser, from Season 2. Nice to see him here, after several years had elapsed. Submitted by dwhite 1.18.13
