My late grandmother used to watch the reruns of this show Perry Mason and the tv movies made in 80s. I loooved the books which I discovered about ten years ago.
Barbara Hale was Della Street even in the books I just pictured her in all he scenes. Perfect casting choice.
Perry Mason is on MeTV weekdays we should all watch it in her memory or read a novel.
She was every bit his partner not just secretary. She is now with Raymond Burr and William Hopper.
