"The Case of the Prodigal Parent"
Philip Larkin is found shot to death. His stepfather, Joseph Harrison, is the chief suspect. The two men quarreled over business and over a girl. In fact, a home movie shows the men fighting. Perry is called on to defend Harrison and delve into the family's strange lineage.
Fay Wray, the woman who drove the big monkey crazy in the 1933 monster classic King Kong, plays the defendant's wife in this episode. Nancy Kulp, Miss Jane of "The Beverly Hillbillies," also appears.
