Trivia

This episode contains a for the show unusually high amount of car crashes. Not only does Jim smash his Firebird into a shed, he also destroys Angel's Cadillac and Althea's Chevy Nova. Towards the end of the episode he runs the van of the bad guys into a ditch. But just when Rockford thinks he has seen the last of all the damage, Rocky's truck gets a fender bender in the last scene of the episode. See more »

This is a terrific episode which starts the final season of the epic Rockford Files, and it revolves around a buried treasure of gold which happens to be buried under Jim's trailer, of all places. Marriet Hartley guest stars and it's obvious of the chemistry between her and James Garner, as only a few years later they would star in many commercials together; they seem at ease with each other and it clearly shows. Speaking of guest stars, Stuart Margolin really shines here as Angel, who is more prominent in the latter half of this segment and has many terrific scenes and is eagerly awaiting his chance of finally making the big score he's always dreamed of; he and Rockford are usually great together and even more so this time around. Leif Ericson, he of the very skinny legs, also stars as a former sheriff searching for the gold. Dennis and Rocky also have a few scenes as well. There's a rather sad moment for me when Jim mentions that maybe it's time to move the trailer after living there for 6 years, and I have to wonder if this was a portent of things to come, considering that the show is nearing its' end in slightly more than 3 months. This episode has several funny aspects, which is always great for this show, and perhaps the funniest moments are when the Firebird, Althea's(Hartley)car, Angel's car, and Rocky's truck all are involved in accidents throughout the duration. There aren't many solid episodes in the last season, but make sure to catch this true golden gem(pun intended)if you get the chance. It turns out that the gold was stolen from the military and it belongs to them, and the entire excavation was for nothing, but it made for a great episode I'll make certain to watch again if it comes on.
