Did You Know?


Just after agent's Wolf and Steiner have finished questioning Angel Martin, the disembodied voice from over-head says for them to 'call Bannerman in Honolulu'. This is a small nod to a show, which one of this series' creators, Roy Huggins had on, prior to The Rockford Files (1974), entitled; Alias Smith and Jones (1971), which featured a recurring character named Harry Briscoe, who was a detective, with an agency (modelled after Pinkerton), named the Bannerman agency', and Harry Briscoe was always fond of telling anyone he was a 'Bannerman man'.

Near the end of the show when Rockford is being chased, he hurriedly puts his briefcase into the elevator and doesn't punch any floor buttons. This means the elevator car would not have gone anywhere (it was after hours so no one else would be using it). If someone had just punched the outside elevator button the elevator doors would have opened and the briefcase would have been right there. See more »


Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Toby: This is Toby. I forgot what I was calling for. Your recording is so boring... spike it with some humour, some personality... something!

Not up to the show's standards
23 November 2014 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

I was disappointed with this episode. Both the writing and directing were "off" - Rockford didn't come off as smart as he usually does, the federal agents seemed dull-witted, and various plot holes kept showing up. For example, Larry tells his thugs to tail Rockford, and they go, but immediately afterward we see Rockford, clearly not being tailed. We learn early on that Rocky is in Hawaii, but we don't learn until later that he won a contest. The interrogation room has a frosted observation window in the ceiling - completely unlike any we've seen before or since. These may be little points, but when they come one after the other during the entire episode, they add up to an unsatisfying episode in an otherwise great series.
