This is Perry Mason and Erle Stanley Gardner at their best.

This is Perry Mason and Erle Stanley Gardner at their best. The plot is clever, Mason is even more clever, and there isn't a dull moment. The protagonist, Rhoda Montaine, is human enough to be both fallible and likable. The huge popularity of the series puzzles me. It was in competition with the classic noir mysteries of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler and Gardner's writing (while competent) isn't in the same class. I think it can be explained by the fact that Gardner's books, while undeniably hard-boiled and having an edgy West Coast feel to them, were rather sanitized versions of this genre. You could give your Grandma a copy of the latest Perry Mason for Christmas.

This is the fifth book in Erle Stanley Gardner's long-running Perry Mason series, originally published in 1934. By then, at least according to the storyline, Perry and his principal associates, Della Street and Paul Drake, were already in the prime of life and Perry had already mounted an impressive record of courtroom victories. Once again they put it all on the line for their client. In the Case of the Curious Bride they take on the smugness of inherited wealth, the evil of con men who prey on women and a District Attorneys who rush to judgement.

The Case of the Curious Bride is a 1935 mystery film, the second in a series of four starring Warren William as Perry Mason, following The Case of the Howling Dog. The script was based on the 1934 novel of the same name by Erle Stanley Gardner, published by William Morrow and Company, which proved to be one of the most popular of all the Perry Mason novels. The movie marked Errol Flynn's first appearance in a Hollywood film. He appears twice, as a corpse and in flashback towards the end.

I love all the Perry Mason books. This one was a lot of fun with Perry pulling out all the stops to prove his client's innocence. Della is so smart, efficient and above all loyal--and for the first time that I've ever seen in all the Mason books, she gets put in her place by Perry for being overprotective! The characters were well-developed and interesting. After a disastrous 1st marriage to a swindling user, the defendant marries again this time a weak, almost helpless man on the rebound. If you pay close attention to the clues, you just might be able to guess who the murderer is!?!

This is Perry Mason and Erle Stanley Gardner at their best. The plot is clever, Mason is even more clever, and there isn't a dull moment. The protagonist, Rhoda Montaine, is human enough to be both fallible and likable. Definitely worth the read/purchase!

Between 1933 and his death in 1970, this author wrote 82 books in the iconic "Perry Mason" series. Although he wrote other books (the Bertha Cool/Donald Lam series is actually my favorite) it was the shrewd, hard-hitting lawyer and his devoted secretary Della Street who became instantly recognizable figures all over the world.

THE CASE OF THE CURIOUS BRIDE was published in 1934 and strikes me as well-written and well plotted, but dated. The huge popularity of the series puzzles me. It was in competition with the classic noir mysteries of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler and Gardner's writing (while competent) isn't in the same class. I think it can be explained by the fact that Gardner's books, while undeniably hard-boiled and having an edgy West Coast feel to them, were rather sanitized versions of this genre. You could give your Grandma a copy of the latest Perry Mason for Christmas. Sam Spade or Philip Marlowe might have caused the old gal to have a heart attack. Perry Mason was a tough competitor, but gentlemanly and a member of an honored profession, which private detective work isn't and never has been. And the constant presence of Della Street gives the books a gentler, more feminine feel than other noir mysteries.

Two things struck me as funny. One of Paul Drake's operatives uses the ruse of identifying himself as a bootlegger to gain entry to a suspect's hotel room. Doubtless Gardner used this idea in his many 1920's BLACK MASK stories, but this book came out in 1934 and Prohibition was repealed in December of 1933. If the guy was thirsty, nothing was keeping him from bellying up to the bar like the rest of us. Also, Chapter 15 has Mason pacing his office while discussing the case with Della "his thumbs thrust in the armholes of his vest." It's been a while since I saw a lawyer wearing a vest. The most prominent criminal lawyer in MY town is famous for not wearing socks. Do vest armholes come down low enough to make this physically possible, not to mention comfortable? It's a mystery.

Books in this series are being sporadically offered (in no pattern that I can ascertain) on sale for $1.99 and I'm picking them up as they are. An enjoyable walk down Memory Lane plus I'm interested to see how the plots, characters, etc change over the almost 40-year period in which they were written. I don't know of another series that ran that long being written by the same author.

This is one of the better Perry Mason novelettes and I would highly recommend it to both Perry Mason fans and anyone who has yet to read a Perry Mason book. Very good interplay between Della Street, Perry, and Paul Drake.

While clearly written early in the career of the talented attorney, it still shows its talent. In fact I found it to be fun read and one I'll probably read again and again. Oddly enough the house that he rented is still a popular style, as is, (One family instead of a multiple one) and can be found in some parts of this country, still. Fun read and will keep people guessing to the end.

I kept visualizing Raymond Burr and couldn't believe the dialog coming from the book detective and reconciling it with the TV Series detective - same with Della Street. I guess it was many years ago and the jargon was different then. It was a mystery for sure.
LOVE IT!
