Efrem Zimbalist (Jr 1918-2014)

  1. Raymond Burr, Perry Mason, TV, 1957-1966.    When the overweight Burr agreed to shed 60 lbs to be the LA DA Hamilton Burger, he was the perfect Mason.  Also in  the mix for the defence attorney who rarely lost a case were Richard Carlson, Richard Egan, William Holden, William Hopper (he became Mason’s private eye, Paul Drake), Fred MacMurray, John Shelton, William Tallman (given Ham Burger (!), instead). “Wecouldn't afford a big star,” explained producer Gail Patrick Jackson. No shows did in the 50s - they simply made big stars.Such as two other Mason wannabes: Mike Connors (becoming Mannix, 1967-1975) and Zimbalist (heading 77 Sunset Strip, 1958-1964).
  2. Brad Dillman, A Rage To Love, 1965.  The  TV star of The FBI and 77 Sunset Strip  missed nothing as John O'Hara's trashy novel limped into the movies on a drip-feed.
