Trivia

The title, "Lions, Tigers, Monkeys and Dogs" is explained in a conversation between Jim and Kendall. She explains that the term was coined by one of her monarchal friends, a member of the royal class "Lions" or the also elite "Tigers." "Monkeys" are the famous but not actually royal class of society. And of course, we "know who the dogs are," Jim says. See more »

One bizarre motive
18 March 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Picking up where the first part left off, the man who tried to kill Lauren Bacall is killed himself falling from a terrace quite accidentally. Accident it may be, but it doesn't stop Lt.Chapman from trying to pin a homicide on Jim Rockford. The influence of society lady and princess Dana Wynter frustrates him no end.

Through some Rockford type conning aided and abetted by Lauren Bacall, Garner learns the deceased was a connected guy to mobster Carmine Caridi. Garner gets a mob like warning, but later in he and Bacall find Caridi dead while shadowing him. In fact they see him die quite violently from a poison.

In the end we find out just who and why someone wants Lauren Bacall dead. It is a motive that is incredibly bizarre, but think about the famous Raymond Chandler novel Farewell My Lovely and why someone wants poor dumb Moose Malloy dead. Something along the same lines.

More than most you want to see Lauren Bacall come back as for more episodes. She and Wynter make some more indelible characters that The Rockford Files gave for its viewers.
