Baron (The): The Complete Series
Steve Forrest stars as John Mannering in THE BARON.
The first ITC series to be made in colour, THE BARON is another of the exciting, cult television classics produced by the company throughout the 1960s. Antiques dealer John Mannering (known as The Baron), along with his glamorous, sexy assistant Cordelia (Sue Lloyd), works in an informal capacity for the head of the British Diplomatic Intelligence – an informal agreement which invariably puts the jet-setting playboy in dangerous, life-or-death situations. Global espionage, bank robberies, murder – it’s all in a day’s work for The Baron!
Based on the best-selling novels by John Creasey, THE BARON is a rarely-seen series cut from the same cloth as other quality ITC productions such as THE SAINT and DANGER MAN and features guest stars of the calibre of Bernard Lee, Peter Wyngarde, Sylvia Sims, Robert Hardy, Philip Madoc, Edward Woodward and Jeremy Brett throughout all thirty episodes.
This series will appeal to all lovers of ITC series (THE SAINT, DANGER MAN, MAN IN A SUITCASE), people who like 60s television, nostalgists, readers of John Creasey’s original books and archive television fans.
