It's a long road from Perry Mason, who won nearly every case of his career - often by extracting confessions on the witness stand - to The Practice's conflicted Bobby Donnell (Dylan McDermott), whose firm's innocent clients - and even its lawyers -seem more likely to go to jail than his guilty ones. TV prosecutors may have the limelight now, but for decades, we've watched their opponents. Among them: Lawrence (E.G. Marshall) and Kenneth Preston (Robert Reed), the father-son team from The Defenders (1961-1965)

REVERSAL OF FORTUNE(Warner Home Video$92.99Jeremy Irons is one of our best actors. Many felt he deserved the Oscar for his chilling portrait of identical twins in "Dead Ringers." The ones who count -- the members of the Academy -- gave him one this time for his haunting, darkly humorous portrayal of Claus von Bulow, the haute society millionaire initially accused of attempting to murder his wife Sunny, the source of his wealth. Director Barbet Schroeder is drawn to oddball, even repellent characters in his films -- from a documentary on Idi Amin to his belching portrait of L.A. in "Barfly."
