The Rockford Files (TV Series 1974–1980) - Plot Summary Poster


Plot Summary

  • Series about an ex-con-turned-private-investigator named Jim Rockford who would rather run away than fight and would rather go fishing than work. He isn't a coward, and he isn't lazy--just a bit on the cautious side, that's all. And he bears a very strong resemblance to Western TV hero Bret Maverick. Rockford is sometimes aided (and sometimes deterred) in his cases by friends Dennis Becker (a police detective), Angel (his cowardly former cellmate) and pretty Beth Davenport (his lawyer).

  • Jim Rockford is a private investigator is this television serial. The cases he takes usually turn out to be more difficult and dangerous than he initially imagines, and he often ends up in situations over his head. Occasionally, his father shows up to help him.

  • Jim Rockford, an ex-con pardoned for an armed robbery he didn't commit, is a private investigator specializing in closed cases. His office is his oversized trailer next to the Malibu pier. His pricey fee of $200 a day plus expenses makes it hard for him to attract clients, but he is well worth it. He is sometimes assisted by his father Joseph (a.k.a. Rocky), his best friend Sgt. Dennis Becker of the LAPD, his lawyer/girlfriend Beth Davenport, and his former cell-mate Evelyn "Angel" Martin.
