Perry Mason: The Case of the Libelous Locket

Professor of Law Edward Lindley regards trial lawyers as being less about the law and more about the performance. Then a student of his confesses to him that she killed a man by hitting him with a poker. Fortunately, that blow wasn't fatal. But the man was a blackmailer, and they make enemies, so when he does turn up dead later, the police have a suspect all but gift-wrapped, and Professor Lindley finds himself forced into a role he disdains...

Episode Quotes
Perry: Professor, do you still believe the perfect trial lawyer is a cross between a parent and a jackass?
Prof. Edward Lindley: No, Mr. Mason. I now believe the perfect trial lawyer needs the eye of an eagle, the heart of a lion, and a lot of help.
Perry: My sentiments exactly.
