Summary
Raymond Burr (1917-1993) was an enigma. A film noir regularly known for his villainous roles in movies like Rear Window, he eventually became one of the most popular stars in television history for nearly 20 years, first as defense lawyer Perry Mason, in TV's first one-hour crime drama, and then as the gruff, wheelchair-bound cop Ironside, in the first TV series to feature a disabled protagonist. But Burr was leading a secret gay life at a time in Hollywood when such a lifestyle was akin to career suicide. He met his partner, struggling actor Robert Benevides, on the set of Perry Mason, and they remained together for over 35 years until Burr's death. Together they built a business empire, traveled the world, and shared their passion for orchids and fine wine--keeping the true nature of their relationship a secret from all but their closest friends.--From publisher description
