Editorial Reviews

Rod Cameron starring in Coronado 9! Set in the affluent San Diego County suburb of Coronado, California, Coronado 9 stars the ruggedly handsome Rod Cameron as Dan Adams, a former Naval Intelligence officer turned private detective. Using his wits as well as his brawn, Adams takes on cases too hot for others to handle, which often involve wealthy and celebrated clients. Adams gets taken from his base in Coronado to far-flung corners of the world in search of justice, including London, New Orleans and Honolulu. Among the many guest stars who seek his help are Doug McClure, DeForest Kelley, Beverly Garland, Connie Hines and Argentina Brunetti. Interestingly, Coronado 9 refers to his telephone exchange, harking back to a simpler time when all telephone numbers had place name prefixes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Brisk action, likable star February 20, 2011
Verified Purchase
Smart, moderately budgeted half-hour crime series set in Coronado, CA, near San Diego, starring Rod Cameron as private detective Dan Adams. Shot by Revue/MCA in 1959-60 for syndication in 1960-61, Coronado 9 moves briskly, with direct, uncluttered plots and surprisingly biting violence. Prints for this welcome DVD release are unrestored but pleasingly clean, with adequate gray ranges and clear audio. Cameron, rugged at about 50 and very tall, is alternately amiable and grimly determined as Adams, a believable character who takes plenty of lumps before emerging triumphant. Cameron was a stuntman before reaching B-movie stardom via serials and westerns. He had a long and prolific career, and Coronado 9 is a highlight. William Witney, who had directed Cameron in the actor's 1943 breakthrough, G Men vs. Black Dragon, helmed many episodes of Coronado 9, bringing more visual flair and action than was typical of crime shows of the period; stunts are particularly well-staged. Plots are suitably varied (robbery, extortion, murder, domestic upset, psychosis, etc.), and the city-seaside combination is used well in location shooting. Male guests stars are competent types like John Archer, Ed Kemmer, Harry Lauter, Walter Reed, Anthony Caruso, Richard Arlen, and young Doug McClure. Female guests stars are particularly vivid: Beverly Garland, Joanne Linville, Sue Ane Langdon, Laurie Mitchell, Coleen Gray, Carol Ohmart, Lisa Lu, Connie Hines, Jean Willes. The episodes are uniformly entertaining, with the strongest being the work of writer Lawrence Kimble (Shotgun Slade, 77 Sunset Strip, Cameron's State Trooper, and many others). But Rod Cameron--stolid and appealing--is the single most important reason why Coronado 9 is satisfying and above average. And despite what the brief liner notes suggest, "Coronado 9" doesn't refer to a telephone exchange, but to the main character's home address.

Rod Cameron stars as private eye Dan Adams in Coronado 9 (1960-61), a tough, violent, hard hitting half hour crime drama that ran for just a single season, and produced a whopping 39 episodes. An ex-Navy intelligence officer, operating out of his home at the beach in Coronado, California, Adams gets involved in a variety of cases where murder and death are routine. With only about 25 minutes to work with, the pace is brisk, and often explores the darker side of humanity. The stories featured in Coronado 9 are generally well-written, and often include unexpected violence, wicked twists, brutality, and greed. There is a high body count, and several kills per episode is not uncommon. Things are seldom as simple as they may appear. In addition to investigating the nefarious activities around San Diego, Adams' work occasionally takes him to New Orleans, and other places in the USA. He also tackles jobs in Mexico, and in many other foreign lands, as well as on the high seas.

Dan Adams takes a methodical approach to detective work, and uses street smarts and his connections with law enforcement, to help him find the truth. Adams hits the pavement doing the legwork, and tracking down leads. When someone gets in his way or threatens him, Adams usually gets violent. A big man, Adams isn't flashy or cool with the ladies, but he is tough, and has the determination to see things through. Adams can be a little gruff dealing with people, but he is mostly ethical, and not motivated just by the buck.

The stories have a particular tone and style, with an atmosphere heavy with intrigue and deceit. After watching a few episodes, you may begin to question everyone's motives, and be on the lookout for a possible double-cross, surprise twist, or sudden death.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coronado 9 starring Rod Cameron September 5, 2011
This is a great black and white detective show from the early days of TV known as TV's golden era. Rod Cameron does a great job as tough private eye Dan Adams who always solves the case. OK, this is a low budget series and it shows but the scripts are good and the acting is fabulous with plenty of guest stars. There is an occasional goof such the episode where Adams climbs aboard a four engine propeller airliner. When the plane is in the air, you can see that it is now a Boeing 707 jetliner. And you can easily see that the exotic locations in the series was actually shot on a Hollywood back lot with stock film footage used of an airliner landing in the city centered in the episode. Still, this is classic TV and all is forgiven. And there is a feeling of nostalgia to see all those big gas guzzling cars in the series-especially the convertible Dan Adams drives. And, I got a real kick out of Adams always asking people where the nearest telephone was. In those days, there were no cell phones or even computers. I'm giving this series thumbs up with 5 stars *****. And I found it at Sam's Club for only $12.88!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotton gems not to be overlooked by our generation September 18, 2011

I am enjoying State Trooper starring Rod Cameron but I have to say this is even more fun. This guy is relatively new to me as an actor but he sure is growing on me fast! There are some real gems of half hour television out there among these old shows and I highly suggest that anyone out there that likes film noir kinda stuff should get their paws on this stuff before it disappears. If you like this,do not fail to check out Lee Marvin in M Squad too. Excuse the cliche but they just dont make tv like this anymore. My dad when he was around used to tell me so, and sadly Ive only recently found out that he had been right.Keep Burn Notice, Johnny Staccato anyone?
