Perry Mason aired on CBS for 9 seasons from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s and then as 30 made-for-television movies for another decade from 1985 to 1995.
Raymond Burr starred as the Los Angeles attorney who specializes in defending seemingly indefensible cases. With the aid of his secretary Della Street and investigator Paul Drake, he often finds that by digging deeply into the facts, startling facts can be revealed. Often relying on his outstanding courtroom skills, he often tricks or traps people into unwittingly admitting their guilt.
The series was based on the characters created by Erle Stanley Gardner, who wrote 85 novels featuring the attorney from 1933 until the author's death in 1970.
The Perry Mason: Season Five (V1) DVD set of 4 discs contain the first 15 episodes of the fifth season that aired from September through December 1961.
