An unrelated question. It seems while the daytime airing of Perry mason runs the usual 1 hour, nighttime airing runs 1 hour and 5 minutes. More commercials?

18/30. I have seen some of the Perry Mason movies when they were shown on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel. I don't think Hallmark showed all of them. On most of the ones I saw on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries were when Perry Mason was practicing in Denver.

21/30. Not too shabby. The movie questions got me as I’ve never seen one of them, along with a couple of the more technical questions

I THINK THE CASE OF THE RESTLESS RED HEAD WAS THE PILOT EPISODE!!
Mike mrshfld6 24 days ago
RESTLESS REDHEAD was the premiere episode, in September 1957.
MOTH-EATEN MINK was the pilot film, filmed a year earlier, in 1956.
(The networks often didn't run episodes in order of production in those days.)

That likely was a trick question where you didn't know if they wanted the first episode made of the first episode aired. A toss up.
