Trivia

The court case at the center of this story was based upon the sensational real life case between Lee Marvin and his live in girlfriend Michelle Triola. This episode was produced soon after her heavily publicized lawsuit against Marvin concluded in April 1979 with a judgement in her favor (which an appeals court would subsequently throw out).

Goofs

Near the end in the scene where Eddie is shot, the object in his left hand is dropped and his left arm is across his body. When Jim checks on him, Eddie's left arm is outstretched holding the object. As Jim runs away, his arm is back across his body. See more »

After getting wounded, James Garner in the leg and George Loros in the arm by some drive by shooters that tells Garner he's disturbing some people. The first part of this story ended this way.

Part two has James Garner focusing on Stanley Brock a record mogul in the day when there were actual vinyl records for sale. He's a tough guy come up the hard way. There's some record piracy of Kristoffer Tabori's latest tracks and that's some of the reason why the heavy hitters are on the prowl and most likely the reason why Tabori's producer has disappeared.

George Loros is still the same moonstruck character and still annoying somewhat. He's offset by Lenny Baker playing the star's obnoxious chief factotum.

Marcia Strassman delivers a devastating account of her groupie experience, worth seeing the episode alone for.

Good Rockford Files story, not one of the better ones though.
