Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
Coronado 9 was a one season series from 1959 that starred Rod Cameron. Cameron is 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. In this episode he becomes involved in a case dealing with a stalker. The wife, Patricia Medina, of a former Navy buddy, is being blackmailed by her former lover. The former paramour, Robert Lowery, wants to start up the liaison again and will not take no for an answer. Cameron pays the swine a less than friendly visit but it does not take. Lowery decides he will bump off Medina's husband and then claim his prize. There are several well staged bouts of fisticuffs followed by the mandatory gun-battle before Lowery is cured of his infatuation. Coronado 9 refers to Cameron's house address in San Diego. The episode was directed by vet low-rent director William Witney. The d of p was Bud Thackery, who like Witney, worked on many Republic Studio's westerns and serials. He also shot Unmasked.
A not bad way to kill a half hour. (b/w)
