Barbara Hale

This is the reverse side of the hardcover dust jacket for The Case of the Singing Skirt. The marketing combines the print and television messages of Perry in an odd way. The hedline says "Della Street (Barbara Hale) reads about Perry Mason's latest case." Hello!?!
The body copy reads:  "Do I like playing Della Street on the Perry Mason television program? I hope I can play Della in every story Erle Stanley Gardner ever writes. Della Street, Secretary and girl-Friday to the world's best-known attorney, is a wonderful role and a delight to play. ... " She's holding the very same book in her hands. Spooky!
