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."

They are staying longer and I think returning for just a bit at end of the year and also coming back next April. Not sure how long or until they sell the home in Italy or just come and go each year.

So you missed the whole thing 🤷‍♀️
No, I was 5 minutes late, which is all it takes, but I wouldn't have known the movie anyway. I did make a comment or two, though. 🙃

I noticed I was on here a few days ago with my quiz results. Also some 22 months ago with the same results. This morning I even got a like from another posters on one of the 22 month old posting. Also what was kind of strange is that it goes from 3 days ago to 22 months for a couple of posts then again to the 2 to 4 days ago regular daily posting for a few dozen and then back to 17-22 months ago. Even saw our friend Wiseguy giving out advice. Imagine that . We had some fun times back then too. Some one liners and funny posts. Most everyone on MeTV Rocks!

I missed two. I shouldn't have missed any as many times as I have seen them all. There were so many in a season! Today's season has so many fewer episodes than in the good old days.
