Raymond Burr was a successful charcter actor specialising in playing villainsThen he was offered the role of Perry mason in the eponymous tv seriesand his career really took offThe show was inovative for the timeIt was a sort of dective show cum courtroom dramaThis is still being copied todaythe latest example of this being BBCs SilkIt even contained the trademark witness stand confession which Burr as Mason excelled at extractingAfter perry Mason Burr went on to Ironside which was almost as successfulIn private life Burr was a closet gayFor him to come out in those days would have been professional suicide so he spun a web of deceitHe claimed to have served in the armed forces when he had notHe claimed to have 3 wives whereas he had a brief marriageHe also claimed to have a deceased son which was also a figment of his imaginationThe author does an excellant job of unveilling the truth in this informative and entertaing biogMy only slight grumble is the number of times he mentions the weight of BurrIt must be at least once a pageOther than that a very easy read
