From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
Sarah Werner (played by the eminent Osa Massen, in one of her several Mason appearances) comes to Perry crying poverty. She begs him to find her husband, Hugo Werner, who ran off with her inheritance. Leave it to Della to wonder out loud why such a poor woman would be wearing "Eternity," a perfume costing $150 an ounce.
correction: $150 for half an ounce
Meanwhile, Hugo Werner, alias Hans Breel, is working on a gem scam. But Hugo’s scheme backfires when he is murdered, and wife Sarah is charged with the crime.
