Perry Mason - The Case of the Sulky Girl  television review

Throwback Tuesday takes us back to the courtroom of Perry Mason. Perry Mason (Raymond Burr) gets not one but two clients in “The Case of the Sulky Girl” when he’s hired first by a willful young woman (Olive Sturgess) looking to get under the thumb of her uncle (Raymond Greenleaf) and later her secret husband (Brian G. Hutton) who becomes the prime suspect when the uncle turns up dead. The episode offers a strong set-up with a witness to the crime as well as offering up the housekeeper (Lillian Bronson) as a strong red herring to the murder. Starting with the theory that his client is indeed innocent, Mason looks to unravel the facts which all seem to point to his guilt including a phone call to the police and the witness to the crime both of which he manages to weaken in the courtroom until eliciting a confession about what truly happened.
