Wow

RIP Barbara

I just saw the Hollywood Reporter story on MSN.com, and then checked here on CD. I just mentioned Barabara in my post #16 on the Spot Yesterday's Stars thread about 16 hours before the Hollywood Reporter article posted, I just couldn't remember her last name in that post (but I got her son's name right), and I remembered the wrong decade re her son's show...1970's rather than the correct 1980s.

94....another long life

I didn't know. The Hollywood Reporter article doesn't include any relevant details, and Mouldy's link is behind a pay wall for me.

I appreciated her character of Della Street and she will be missed. Let's do it one more time ...

Perry Mason: [Working on a crossword puzzle]: I tell you what I'll do, Della. I'll settle for a seven letter word beginning with S meaning lawyer.

Della Street: Shyster!

Perry Mason: Getting a bit fresh, aren't we, Della?

I liked her portrayal of Della Street--so matter of fact and pragmatic.

I liked the hint of Romance between Della and Perry that passed by me the first or second time through the series.

One episode had a murder on a lake where Perry had a weekend cabin. Someone died overnight and a main character came to get Perry at his cabin to represent the falsely accused son. Sitting at the table having a leisurely breakfast were Perry and Della (I believe wearing robes).

Parodied nicely in the "MAD" magazine satire, "Perry Masonmint".
