|November 2,1957  "The Case
of the Angry Mourner"
There's trouble in Bear Valley. Carla Adrian, played by the luscious Barbara Eden ("I Dream of Jeannie"), gets her blouse ripped by a wheelchair-bound water skiier who gets fresh. Later, when the masher is found shot dead, Adrian's mother, Belle (Sylvia Field, aka Mrs. Wilson on "Dennis the Menace"), is arrested for the crime. Luckily for her, Perry is vacationing nearby. Watch Perry literally strong-arming his elderly client in an effort to have her come clean.
Paul Fix, better known as Marshal Micah Torrence on "The Rifleman," makes the first of his several appearances on the Mason series portraying the "typical" backwoods prosecutor.
