"Hiya, Beautiful" - a common phrase used by Paul Drake, Perry Mason's private investigator, when he came into Perry's office.


Barbara Hale, the Emmy Award-winning actress who typified the ideal mid-20th-century secretary as the beautiful, loyal, confident but soft-spoken Della Street on the television series “Perry Mason,” died on Thursday at her home in Los Angeles. She was 94.

Hollywood Reporter tribute: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/ba...son-893891


In Britain the BBC screened Lady Luck from 1946, as a tribute, on February 4th. It was her first star billing, alongside Robert Young and her fifth movie appearance. Not a memorable film but a fine performance from the lady we came to know as Della Street.
I'm trying to get my hands on "West of the Pecos" (1945) with Robert Mitchum. Listed as a B movie but want to see it just for her.
I downloaded the movie from a torrent since I couldn't find it on any website where I could just leave a link. Anyhow, what a nice, happy little film. It's set in the west but very much a happy little love story mixed with typical B Western style...

Now if I could edit out 6 minutes I could post in on Dailymotion.. Not worth the effort so if I find a link I'll post it.
