The Barbary Coast Trivia:
Barbary Coast refered to a one square mile area of San Francisco, California, an area filled with rather "seedy" characters involved in numerous criminal activities.
Jeff Cable was the undercover agent who worked directly for the Governor of California.
Cash Cole was the owner of the "Golden Gate" casino. He came to own the casino by winning a game of poker.
Jeff Cable could always convince Cash Cole to help him pursue criminals because he had once saved Cole's life. Cole was never eager to help but simply couldn't refuse.
Barbary Coast didn't even last one full season. It had some pretty strong competition. For its first 4 episodes on Monday nights, it was up against "Rhoda (1974)" and "The Invisible Man (1975)". Then it was moved to Friday against "M*A*S*H (1972)", "Sanford & Son (1972)" and "Chico and the Man (1974)".
