CORONADO 9 – The Daley Double - 1961

Coronado 9 was a one season Private Eye series that ran during, 1960-61. Rod Cameron plays a former Navy Intelligence officer who decides to set up shop as a private investigator. He works out of his beach front house in San Diego. This is episode 36 of the series.

A movie star, Mary LaRoche, calls in Private Investigator Rod Cameron after a death on the set. A stunt woman had been killed doing a stunt LaRoche had been meant to do. LaRoche thinks someone is out to kill her. There has been a string of close calls on the production.

Cameron checks around and interviews the film's producer, William Keene and director, Peter Adams. All he discovers is that LaRoche is disliked by everyone on the cast and crew. He decides to keep a close eye on LaRoche at her apartment.

That night a man, Paul Lukather, breaks in and threatens to kill her. The dead stunt woman had been his girl, and he blames LaRoche. A well-staged round of fisticuffs with Cameron puts an end to that idea. After Lukather cools down, Cameron enlists the man to try and catch the real killer.

The next day there is to be a big fx scene about an earthquake. The stunt has balsa wood beams crashing down on LaRoche. Cameron insists on a test run with the director. They do the test and the beam that would of come down on LaRoshe, is solid oak. It would have killed her.

Cameron grabs up the producer Keene as the main suspect. Keene is broke, but he has a half million insurance policy on Laroche in case of her death. Keene makes a break for it but is corralled by Police Detective Hugh Sanders, who Cameron had called in earlier.

This is low budget TV that moves along at a fair clip.
