Robert Benevides and Raymond Burr

Main Details






Raymond Burr was homosexual, but hid his sexuality for most of his life out of fear that it would damage his career. He had a 33 year romantic relationship with Robert Benevides, a young actor and Korean war veteran whom Burr had met on the set of Perry Mason. Benevides, who is credited as production consultant in 21 Perry Mason TV movies, was described as Burr’s "long-time companion" in a 1993 TV Guide article. Together the couple owned and operated first an orchid business, then a vineyard, in the Dry Creek Valley. After Burr died, his niece Minerva began a public feud with Benevides over whether he should have been given the bulk of Burr's estate. Benevides remains the proprietor of the Raymond Burr Vineyards in Healdsburg, California.
