Angel Martin only appears as the voice on the answering machine in the opening title sequence and briefly in a second message. In the first message Angel tells Jim about a tip on a horse race, which he purports to have received from "Tallaferro," who was a character in the immediately previous episode, "The Battle-Ax and the Exploding Cigar," but not a character in this episode.

Old Flames Burn Too
25 August 2006 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

"Maverick" veteran Pat Crowley appears as Valerie Pointer, a woman Rockford almost married 20 years ago (something Rocky is of course quick to remind him of). Someone's shot at her and killed her dog and so of course she turns to her old flame for help. Despite his reluctance to cross paths with Valerie, (and the fact the series seems to have presented him with an endless parade of "old flames in trouble", Rockford volunteers to "nose around" and see if he can find out what's going on. Also featured in this episode is one of the rare appearances of Rocky's friend L.J. (Al Stevenson) who's often referenced, but doesn't show up much and the beautiful Elisabeth Brooks. This former "Days of Our Lives" hotty plays actress Jean Ludwig and is a real attention grabber. How they failed to put her in a bikini for this episode, I'll never know. In another rarity, the answering machine message left by Angel Martin at the opening of the show is referenced within the episode! Usually these stand alone and have nothing to do with the story. Angel himself (Stuart Margolin) does not appear in the show.
