CORONET BLUE starring Frank Converse

CORONET BLUE:

Frank Converse's character, an amnesiac who is found floating in an unnamed body of water and whose only memory is the phrase "Coronet Blue," discovers that he has been targeted for assassination by a mysterious group of killers. He adopts the name "Michael Alden," a combination of the name of his doctor and the name of the hospital where he was taken to recover. Over the remaining episodes he attempts to discover his identity and the identities of his assailants, whom he refers to as 'Greybeards'.

The show's 13 episodes were filmed in 1965 and were originally intended to be shown during the 1965-66 television season, but CBS cancelled the show before it aired and relegated it to summer replacement status. (Only 11 of the 13 episodes were shown during the initial run.) It proved moderately popular and developed a cult following, but it was never renewed.

The series ended before the solution to these mysteries was revealed, but series creator Larry Cohen later told his biographer: "The actual secret is that Converse was not really an American at all. He was a Russian who had been trained to appear like an American and was sent to the U.S. as a spy.

He belonged to a spy unit called 'Coronet Blue.' He decided to defect, so the Russians tried to kill him before he can give away the identities of the other Soviet agents. And nobody can really identify him because he doesn't exist as an American. Coronet Blue was actually an outgrowth of 'The Traitor' episode of The Defenders."
