Early in the episode, when meeting with his client, "Rockford says that they break out a new deck of Bicycles every few hands." In the poker scenes, the actors are actually playing with a deck of Bee playing cards, a higher-end product of the same company. See more »


Young Man: [Rockford pulls up to the speaker at a Jack in the Box drive-thru] Your order please.
Jim Rockford: Call the police.
Young Man: Your order please!
Jim Rockford: That's it. You got it. There's a guy following me in a white 1974 Datsun, California plates. Tell the police I'll be headed south on Verdugo and for them to intercept.
Young Man: Are you nuts, mister? Is this a joke?
Jim Rockford: Just tell them he took a shot at me... and while you're at it could you throw in a taco and a bag of fries?

Movers and shakers in Bay City
19 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Star James Garner directs player James Garner in this episode of the Rockford Files where Jim Rockford is investigating a crooked poker game. Wonder of wonders, Rockford's client actually lies to him even as to his own identity.

Some big movers and shakers in the town of Bay City are involved in some heavy poker losses including the client who hires Rockford to investigate the game. But the whole thing doesn't ring true and it starts with Blair Brown tailing Garner. She's not very good at it and Garner catches her at it easily enough.

Rockford Files episodes are always more special when Stuart Margolin is in them. Angel plays only a peripheral role. I'd have loved it had we seen more of him with Margolin trying to fleece the fleecers in the poker game.

There's also quite a bit more to this than just a crooked poker game and Rockford's client Stewart Moss gets murdered. Just who and Brown are I won't reveal because that would tell the whole story. But the best scene is Garner and Moss after Garner has discovered who Moss really is.

Nicely done by director Garner.
