The Baron - The nickname of American born John Mannering (Steve Forrest) who worked undercover for British Intelligence on the spy drama THE BARON/ITC/1966.

Steve Forrest as THE BARON

His nickname "The Baron" was derived from the name of his family's Texas Ranch (Baron Brand) where he spent his childhood. The Baron drove a Jensen automobile, (license: BAR 1).

When The Baron was not on assignment as a spy, he supervised a chain of fine antique stores in London, Paris and Washington, DC.

The character was based on the novels by John Creasey, (written under pseudonym of Anthony Morton), the first of which was Meet The Baron (1937). In the original novels, the Baron was an Englishman and ex-jewel thief.
