From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
An offbeat episode starring Victor Buono as a philosophical deadbeat artist and Zasu Pitts—the silent film star—as Daphne Whilom.
Pete Manders (Wynne Pearce) has his ups and downs. He’s been offered Zingy, a popular comic strip for a song, but finds out the reason the purchase price is so low is to appease him for the loss of his “lovebird,” Leslie, who’s flying the coop. She’s running away with previous Zingy owner, Gabe Philips, a man with two private and separate identities.
When Philips is murdered, Perry visits a hip little artists’ colony in Port Harmony to dig up the dirt on the victim’s alias, Otto Gervaert.
