Looks like we don't have Raymond William Stacey Burr salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1He was known to be a very private man.
2His father was of Northern Irish descent. His mother had English, German, Scottish, and Northern Irish ancestry.
3Acting mentor and friend of: Don Galloway, Barbara Anderson, Don Mitchell, Elizabeth Baur and William R. Moses.
4Has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6656 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, California.
5Best remembered by the public for his starring roles as the title characters of both series: Perry Mason (1957) and Ironside (1967).
6Appears as lawyer Perry Mason, with William Talman as District Attorney Hamilton Burger, on a 44¢ USA commemorative postage stamp in the "Early TV Memories" issue honoring Perry Mason (1957), issued 11 August 2009.
7Was considered for the role of Matt Dillon in Gunsmoke (1955). In an August 23, 1975, article in TV Guide called "When Chester Forgot to Limp" commemorating trivia from the show as it was about to leave the air, the show's first producer Charles Marquis Warren recalled, "His voice was fine, but he was too big. When he stood up, his chair stood up with him". William Conrad, who played Matt Dillon on radio, was rejected for the TV version for similar reasons. In a memorial article in TV Guide published shortly after Burr's death, the original producers of Perry Mason (1957) almost rejected Burr for that role, again because Burr was overweight. He went on an intensive diet to get down to a size acceptable to the producers.
8His parents were married in Canada in 1914, after they migrated from Chicago, Illinois.
9Dropped out of San Rafael Military School at age 17 to join the Civilian Conservation Corps, where he learned to fight forest fires and plant trees.
10His mother Minerva died in 1974, at age 81 of cancer, while his father, William, died in 1985, at age 96.
11After he was diagnosed with kidney cancer, he refused to undergo surgery so that he could star in his final television movies: The Return of Ironside (1993) and Perry Mason: The Case of the Killer Kiss (1993).
12His parents, Minerva and William Burr, after 33 years of separation, remarried in 1955.
13Featured in "Bad Boys: The Actors of Film Noir" by Karen Burroughs Hannsberry (McFarland, 2003).
14Biography in: "The Scribner Encyclopedia of American Lives". Volume 3, 1991-1993, pages 84-85. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 2001.
15He is commemorated on a 2008 Canadian postage stamp, one of four honoring achievements of Canadians in Hollywood. The other three depict Norma Shearer, Marie Dressler, and Chief Dan George.
16He had an interest in, and knowledge of, the cultivation and hybridization of orchids. He and partner of 35 years, Robert Benevides, set up Sea God Nurseries, becoming, in the 20-odd years of its operation, an international presence with ranges in Fiji, Hawaii, the Azores and Southern California. They were responsible for over 1,500 new orchids added to the worldwide catalog. Burr cultivated an orchid that he named after his former Perry Mason (1957), co-star, Barbara Hale, as the symbol of friendship.
17In 1990, not long before he grew ill with cancer, Burr and longtime partner Robert Benevides started a vineyard at their Dry Creek Valley ranch, and released their first vintage. The wine was bottled in November 1992 and released after Burr's death in 1995.
18Was the original host of Unsolved Mysteries (1987), hosting only its first special in January 1987. He was then briefly replaced by Karl Malden. However, both actors requested salaries that producer John Cosgrove deemed astronomical. So by the time the show became a regular series in 1988, Robert Stack had been hired as the permanent host at what the producer believed to be a more reasonable salary.
19His official biography stated that he had been married three times, but two of his wives and one child had died. However, these details were fabricated in an attempt to hide the fact that Burr was gay. Only one brief marriage had actually occurred, and it had ended in divorce. The other two marriages and the child were fiction.
20Longtime companion of Robert Benevides. Benevides was a young actor Burr met on the set of the original Perry Mason (1957) television series. He was 13 years Raymond's junior. He had a small role in the sci-fi film The Monster That Challenged the World (1957), billed as Bob Benevedes.
21He was incredibly generous, giving most of his money to charities and sharing it with friends.
22He taught drama at Columbia University.
23He attended Stanford, Columbia and Chungking Universities.
24He was the director of the Pasadena Community Playhouse before entering the United States Navy in World War II.
25He, Michael J. Fox and Jim Carrey head a list of top Canadians in United States television compiled by Banff Television Festival in June 2002.
26The Columbia Theatre on Columbia Street in New Westminster, British Columbia, was renamed in his honor in 2000.
27Left his $32-million estate solely to long-term partner Robert Benevides.
28Bought his own 3,000-acre island 165 miles northeast of Suva in Fiji in 1965 and named it Naitamba, where he raised cattle and copra.
29Interred at Fraser Cemetery, New Westminister, British Columbia, Canada.
30Before dying from cancer he threw parties to say farewell to many of his friends.
31Was a lounge singer in his younger days.
32Suffered eye strain from always having to look upwards while in a wheelchair on the Ironside (1967) set.
33On October 1, 1993, a memorial service was held at the Pasadena Playhouse. It was the very same theater in which Burr had made his acting debut 50 years before. A director's chair with his name on it, placed at center stage, played host to friends who paid tribute.
34While working with Errol Flynn, Flynn told him that if he died with ten dollars in his pocket he hadn't done a good job. This inspired him to always share his wealth with all.
35Loved to cook and throw intimate dinner parties.
36Had an art gallery on Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive in the early 1950s.

#Quote
1Try and live your life the way you wish other people would live theirs.
2[about his character in Perry Mason (1957)] Let's just say that the part isn't conducive to leisurely living the way I once knew it. I only hope that I can regain my own identity, once I decide that Perry Mason and myself have come to the parting of the road. Perry Mason has become a career for me . . . all I know is that I work, eat and sleep Perry Mason.

#Trademark
1His beard.
2Deep commanding voice.
3Heavyset stature.
