CORONADO 9 – The Man From Down Yonder - 1961

Coronado 9 was a one season 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.

P.I. Cameron gets a call from an old friend, Byron Morrow. Would Cameron fly out to New Orleans and help Morrow with a problem. The problem is Morrow's new wife, Mary Munday. Something has Munday on edge and she will not say what it is. Morrow does not believe it is an affair. Would Cameron put Morrow's mind at ease and have a look into the matter. Cameron agrees and grabs the first plane.

The first day on the job, Cameron follows Munday down to the docks. There, she meets a rather shady looking type, John Goddard. She hands Goddard some cash and makes to leave. Goddard grabs her and gives her a few shakes. "More cash!" he yells at her. Goddard then returns to the dockside warehouse he came out of, while Munday leaves in a taxi.

Cameron drops his coat and tie and follows Goddard into the warehouse. Goddard is in the middle of an argument with another longshoreman. The man produces a cargo hook and goes for Goddard. Cameron steps up and disarms the man. He then asks Goddard about work. Goddard likes Cameron's stuff and agrees to shoot him some under the table hours.

After Cameron has pumped the overly talkative Goddard for info he calls it a day. He has a quick chat with Morrow and Munday. Goddard and Munday it seems had been married years before. She had divorced the swine when he was sent up on a manslaughter beef.

Munday had been so ashamed that she never told new hubby, Morrow, about the marriage. Goddard is now back and is blackmailing Munday for his silence on the matter. Morrow hugs Munday and says all is forgiven. The case is far from over though. It seems that Goddard plans on robbing Morrow's jewelry store.

Also in the mix, Munday's sister, Claudia Barrett, Goddard's thug friend John Cliff and New Orleans Policeman, Len Hendry. Cameron throws together a plan to catch Goddard in the robbery act, and have him sent away for good. The usual assortment of flying bullets and hard fists is needed to settle the issue.

Good episode with the added bonus of some very nice location film work.
