Trivia

Rockford uses the name "Jim Dennis" when he poses as a police luitenant to lure out a woman. The name is an obvious combination of Rockford's first name and his police pal's Dennis first name. See more »

Goofs

When Jim leaves Slauson's office building at 2520 West Olive Ave., he turns around and heads west on Olive Ave. When the goons in the Mercury are seen following him in the long shot of both cars, he is traveling east on Olive Ave right in front of Slauson's office again. See more »

The best way to involve Rockford is put him in a jackpot
11 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In this Rockford Files story James Garner gets a call from an old flame Susan Strasberg. I'm surprised his better instincts don't kick in as they do when Angel Martin wants something of him.

She asks him to deliver a briefcase ostensibly carrying some invoice copies to real estate man Rod Cameron. But he calls the cops and it's a good thing that Rockford has a friend in Dennis Becker. Still he has to spend a night in the slam because Gretchen Corbett isn't available right away.

Besides just being hired by clients the best way to get Jim Rockford involved is to try and put him in a jackpot. Better instincts should have kicked even with past kanoodling. Strasberg's old man was a fellow con in San Quentin with Garner and he was conman on the outside by trade. Like father like daughter.

Turns out she and a partner John Lupton were using his estranged wife's jewels to finance a real estate scam. But Lupton double crossed Strasberg and she passes on the jackpot to Garner.

By the way Lupton's wife Veronica Hamel is one cool piece of work herself. I wouldn't want her on my case.

Of course he's out of the jackpot, but old times die hard.
