    ...and the 'Perry Mason' theme ('Park Avenue Beat', by Fred Steiner) must be one of the most memorable and distinctive themes ever broadcast in TV history....

    I agree with you, westgrand. Burr told the execs he wouldn't do the movies unless Barbara Hale was included. And, as an extra added piece Hale's real life son (William Kaat) played Paul Drake, Jr for the first (maybe around 6) episodes.

    My favorite episode is the last one of the series.....but, it's better in the uncut version (The Case of the Final Fade Out) for a lot of reasons. The best reason is the fact that the second judge in the show is none other than Erle Stanley Gardner, the creator of Perry Mason.

    Moe, I knew that William Katt was Barbara Hale's son....and, to me, that made the casting more interesting. Real, family entertainment.

    A bit hazy about 'The Case Of The Final Fade Out' - I guess that is one of the few in which Raymond Burr does not appear, because he had passed away?

  4. #5154
    No, westgrand. The Case of the Final Fade Out is the last of the series (1967) with
    all characters (except maybe for Ray Collins who played Lt Tragg). This is one episode I could always watch, BUT, it has to be the uncut version. One of the cable channels here just had it on & they cut the fun parts out of it....what a shame...it doesn't come across as well.

    Quote for the Day:

    "Karen and I started our first group in 1965.

    I played piano, Karen played drums and Wes Jacobs was on bass.

    We played light jazz. I began urging Karen to sing.

    The first song she tried was 'The End Of The World' in a higher voice. Her deep voice arrived later.

    As a singer, Karen was an exotic creature. She had impeccable intonation and remarkable breath control, without any training."

    Quote for the Day:

    "The ('Imitation Of Life') Oscar prestige was fine, but I worked more before I was nominated.

    Casting directors think an Oscar nominee is suddenly in another category.

    They couldn't possibly ask you to do one or two day's work.

    You wouldn't accept it.

    And I'm sure I would."

    Quote for the Day:

    "Well, Suzanne de Passe called me one day and told me they needed someone to do the role.

    I'd never been in a movie before, but I guess they figured I'd be right for the part.

    Well, the producer didn't feel I could do it, but Mr. Gordy insisted that I could, even though he didn't know for sure that I could!

    But I rehearsed at it for two and a half months - I used to go over to a friend's house and stand up on a coffee table and practice catching money that was thrown at me!"

    Quote for the Day:

    "I prefer live television because it's stage and film and everything rolled into one.

    Without the pressure.

    The stage, I think, is my very first favourite, because you're in charge.

    When you're on that stage, you're in charge.

    Live television, the director can always stop you, or go back, but at least you have an audience to play to."

    Quote for the Day:

    "Motown thought Marvin was absolutely insane, and that I had lost my marbles, too.

    This was going to be the biggest fiasco that ever was.

    Nobody believed in it at all.

    I thought it was different enough that it might hit with the general public. Of course, his messages were rather timely. They may have been a little strong, but not necessarily when you compare them to what other artists of the day were doing.

    It was just that it hadn't been done in that format before. People didn't get up and start screaming and hollering about dope and the ghetto and things."

    Quote for the Day:

    "In those days, there were a lot of groups with bird names.

    There was The Flamingos, The Cardinals, and the 'Earth Angel' guys, The Penguins.

    Most of the bird names were gone.

    So then we went to cars. Somebody said "What's the finest car there is?" and the light bulb went off : The Cadillac. You can't get much classier than that.

    So then we had to live up to that. We had to dress the part, and dance the part, and be the part."

    - Earl 'Speedo' Carroll, interview with Mark Voger for NJ.com, 2010.

    I didn't know any of the songs or routines. I was terrified.

    The Supremes' manager at that time was Bill Loeb.

    He said "If you pull this off in Mexico, you've got the job."
