Because the show was a moderate success, CBS decided to bring it back and have new episodes filmed. However, Frank Converse had already committed to do N.Y.P.D. (1967) for ABC. Ironically, the finale of this show aired the day before the debut of N.Y.P.D. See more »
I have read various accounts of the premise of Coronet Blue and how the pilot episode opens. There are two details I vividly remember differently and was wondering if anyone else noted them as I did. Most interesting is the origin of the series title. Some websites state Frank Converse's character climbs out of the water himself and mumbles only two words: "Coronet Blue" - hence, the title. I watched the pilot episode the night it first aired on television. Specifically, he was pulled from the water by other people, and unconscious at that. The people go through his pockets looking for identification, but the only thing he has on him is a matchbook with a design of a blue coronet (crown) on the outside of it. Doesn't anyone else remember that detail?
