  1. Scott - Oh, what an iconic show! Thanks for the reminder.

  2. I loved the Perry Mason show. I wonder how many of those I watched?

  3. Watched many episodes.
    Burr wasn't the first Canadian to star in Hollywood - that would probably be Mary Pickford - but he probably made the most money up until that time.
