Quote:I remember my friends and I being pleased with ourselves when we realized Mason's opponent was named Ham Burger.
Quote:I've read a few interviews with Gardner, a couple of them while Perry Mason was still running, and a couple of times he swore up and down that he didn't make the "hamburger" connexion when he named his district attorney "Hamilton Burger".
That seems almost unbelievable but I guess sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees. I wonder if he tumbled to it on his own one day or if a fan pointed it out.
Quote:I always rooted for Burger in the courtroom; he was an honest, ethical man. And yes, his average was pretty much zero when he ran up against Mason, but it sure had to be 100% against the real murderers, seeing as how they always confessed in open court after Mason's examinations.
You make a good point, maybe prosecutors fought for a Mason case so they could get any easy follow-up win.
