Movie Info

The Case of the Lost Love was the fourth of the Perry Mason TV movies of the 1980s. Raymond Burr plays Mason (you're surprised?), who while out of town at a lawyer's conference is reunited with Jean Simmons, his lady friend of 30 years past. Simmons has come up in the world, and is about to be nominated for the US senate. Unfortunately, her husband Gene Barry is accused of murdering a blackmailer. The lack of surprise in the denouement is compensated for by the pathos and emotionalism in the final scenes. Back from the previous Mason films is Barbara Hale as Della Street, and Hale's son William Katt as Paul Drake Jr. Despite stiff competition from the Audrey Hepburn-Robert Wagner TV movie Love Among Thieves, Perry Mason: The Case of the Lost Love swept the ratings when it premiered on February 23, 1987.

Who cares if the plotting is a bit obvious and not nearly as accomplished as in the CBS series?

Audience Reviews for Perry Mason: The Case of the Lost Love

½

If you are a fan of the Perry Mason series you know what you're getting going into one of these movies, someone seemingly falsely accused and usually innocent with Perry and steadfast Della Street finally deducing the guilty party at the eleventh hour and this one is no different, that's not a bad thing. It does have the advantage however of having a top quality guest cast lead by the great Jean Simmons and many other fine actors.
