Mr. Hoad: Where is she?
Jim Rockford: Oh, you're kidding. She's my get away free card.
Mr. Hoad: You ain't got no "get away free card." You maybe got one chance in 10,000 of surviving the next 30 seconds.

Nice work
13 April 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Jim Rockford's case involves him putting a tail on Lynette Mettey as she's released from prison and making her acquaintance and getting in her good graces. It might involve a little romance, but nice work if you can get it.

Mettey was involved in a holdup of a Marine payroll outside Camp Pendleton and of course the serial numbers were recorded which makes it impossible to trace. But there's a nice finder's fee for returning the stolen cash. James Garner may be in line for a piece of it, but from exactly who? Mettey or one of her partners which include Robert Symonds, Jim Antonio or Bill Fletcher.

I did love Symonds in this story, the granddaddy of con men who may have tutored Angel Martin. His act pretending to be Antonio's father with Irene Tedrow as his mother was a pip. Later on he fools some local police pretending to be Jim Rockford.

Nicely done, especially a doubly ironical ending.
