Perry Mason: The Case of the Garrulous Gambler

Hard-luck Larry Benton gets into an argument in a poker game and knocks Mike Granger out cold. Then he's informed that Granger is dead. In reality, the whole set-up is a scam to shake him down for money. Larry forges a check on his brother Steve's account for $5,000 but then Johnny Clay, the mastermind of the scam, tries to shake him down for more. Clay ends up dead and Steve Benton gets charged with his murder. Perry must get to the bottom of the crooked poker game in order to clear his client.
