Was this a Perry Mason case or a 1950s horror film?

Can you tell the difference between a Haunted Strangler and a Haunted Husband?

Perry Mason premiered in the 1957–58 television season. This also happened to be a peak era for spooky science-fiction flicks. Drive-ins were showing double features about killer blobs, giant ants, body snatchers, a man transformed into a fly, "The Thing" and much more.

Perhaps that's why so many cases from Perry Mason sounded like a horror film.

Every episode of the mystery series had a title that began "The Case of…". We removed that part.

See if you can tell the difference between "Perry" and "scary."

Tonight, 0ct.24, on Antenna TV they are running the 1961 Jack Benny episode "Jack On Trial For Murder"
at 10:30. He gets Raymond Burr as Perry Mason to defend him, as who else would you get? Perry Mason fans, check it out.

You got 18 out of 19
Win or lose, hopefully it made you smile!
Missed #13.
It could have went either way.
I guessed wrong.

17/19 but more that I know 50s horror and SciFi than I remember names of Perry Mason cases.

Eighteen out of nineteen. Not bad for someone who's only watched maybe two episodes of Perry Mason from start to finish.

19/19 I rarely watched Perry Mason, but I know most every horror movie from the 50's and 60's.

That's how I was able to do it, though I missed the last one.

Shaky start but 17/19. % wise, that's 89%, a B+.

I caught the horror titles, most of them, not exactly a Perry Mason fan, what's the point of watching?
He never lost a case. Shows like that are for the unemployed, or when people were more easily entertained.

19/19 I'm old enough to have seen all those movies in theaters.

"The Screaming Woman" was also the name of a Made-For-TV movie based on a Ray Bradbury story. It was noteworthy for its star: Olivia De Havilland!

Either answer for #11 is correct. 'The Screaming Woman' is a horror movie, but there is a Perry Mason episode, 'The Case of the Screaming Woman', which is Season 1 Episode 30, and aired on April 26, 1958.

Uh, Number 11 is incorrect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Screaming_Woman

There was also an episode of Perry called The Case of the Screaming Woman.
