It takes a legal drama expert to tell if these people on the stand are from Perry Mason or Matlock

Do you recognize these people from 'Perry Mason', or from 'Matlock'?

On Now
MeTV Presents the Best of Raymond Burr as Perry Mason
Up Next:

Hundreds of cases mean hundreds of witnesses, criminals and people on trial. When you take both Perry Mason and Matlock, two of the best known legal dramas in television history, the number of people coming in and out of the courtroom grows. 

How well do you know all the random faces from either show? From small guest witnesses to those on trial, can you tell which faces came from Perry Mason and which came from Matlock?

In some images, you might be able to find a few clues. In others, it's just the subject! All pictures have been edited to black and white to make it a little more challenging. 

Good luck!

Watch Matlock on MeTV!

9/10 So close! The last one tripped me up. I had been relying on hairstyles & clothes but that guy barely has any hair and a suit/tie that could have been from either era lol

10 out of 10. Was Alan Fudge ever in an episode of anything that he wasn't the killer? I really liked him as an actor but it usually spoiled any of these shows for me because when I saw him in the cast I knew he was going to be the killer.

9/10. All guesses. Hairstyles and clothing were excellent clues to help me solve the cases. But nobody is perfect.

10 out of 10 because the Matlock photos looked like they had been doctored.

9/10. Number 4 was tricky to me. He could have been in either period!

10/10! But a trickier quiz would be Matlock vs. Perry Mason movies! It's easy to distinguish the older grain of B&W!

Very very true, because so many actors that appeared on Matlock showed up in the PM movies.
