Notes While Watching Perry Mason on MeTV

April 9, 2020

In last night’s “Perry Mason” episode on MeTV, titled “The Case of the Borrowed Baby,” I noticed actor Hugh Marlowe, I believe, best known for his role in “All About Eve,” a true movie classic.

While researching Hugh in “Eve” in which his character was married to that of Celeste Holm,  I was struck by a picture of the great stage and later film actor, Walter Hampden.

Mr. Hampden, for 27 years the President of the Player’s Club in New York City, played the father of brothers Humphrey Bogart and William Holden in the film version of “Sabrina.”

More research “yielded” that “The Beverly Hillbillies” cohorts Raymond Bailey (“Mr. Drysdale”) and Nancy Kulp (“Jane Hathaway”) each had uncredited parts in “Sabrina.”

Nice to know.
