Claire Dodd

  1. Genevieve Tobin, The Case of the Lucky Legs, 1935.   After replacing Helen Trenholme as Della Street  – Girl Friday of the lawyer-detective Perry Mason – in the second movie, The Case of the Curious Bride, 1935, poor Dodd was dropped from this third film.  
  2. June Travis, The Case of the Black Cat, 1936.   Welcomed back for the fourth mystery, The Case of the Velvet Claws, 1936, Dodd was dumped again from this fifth of the series’ six investigations. Warren William, aka the first Mason, had a different Della Street during three of his four  cases. The ultimate Della was Barbara Hale in 271 TV episodes, 1957-1966, and 30 tele-films during 1985-1995.
