From The Perry Mason TV Show Book
Fay Wray plays Lorna Thomas, a slightly washed-up movie star who once abandoned her baby only to live—and die—to regret it.
George Clark's wife was given away as a child and now, as an adult, wishes to find her real mother. When her husband discovers the possibility that a former film star may be the missing mother, he consults with Perry to find out his wife's rights, but learns that since Betty was legally given up for adoption, she has no rights of child to her mother -- financial, emotional, or any other.
When Lorna is murdered, Tragg thinks motive, then arrests George.
CORRECTION George Clark is motivated by concern for his wife's emotional well-being, not by greed. Submitted by JazzBaby, 8/19/2019.
