This Model T milk truck EV shares the limelight in HBO’s Perry Mason reboot
“He said, flinging the words over his shoulder, ‘But you’re a better detective than you are a lawyer. When you turn your mind to the solution of a crime, you ferret out the truth.’” — DA Hamilton Burger, Erle Stanley Gardner’sThe Case of the Caretaker’s Cat
When asked what kind of man he is, Perry Mason admits he’s a piss-poor one. A crooked cop tells us Perry’s a bum, and only a bum would hire him. He’s “an unsavory character … with shoddy penmanship.” His ex-wife doesn’t know what his job is, only that it involves poking around people’s dirty linens, hanging out at the morgue, and getting his nose knocked in twice a week. Not many people have a particularly high opinion of Perry Mason, including the man himself. But a case gets its hooks into the P.I., and it starts to change Perry.
