Trivia

Whilst this episode is not the first one James Luisi appeared in as Lt. Doug Chapman (Joey Blue Eyes was), this episode marks Chapman's first regular appearance. If Joey Blue Eyes is included, Lt. Chapman will appear in 25 episodes, not including appearances in The Rockford Files TV movies. See more »

Goofs

It's an age-old misconception that poison ivy, poison oak, etc. can be spread by physical contact with an infected person; you have to come into contact with the plant's oils. See more »

What would law enforcement do without psychics?
24 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Webber was a good friend of James Garner and he had him back on The Rockford Files in four different characters in five shows. Usually Webber played sleazebags whether here on other shows and movies. This is no exception as Webber plays a psychic consultant to the cops. Right now he's consulting with the LAPD on a missing persons case of a record company executive and his lady friend. A case that Jim Rockford has been working on so imagine his surprise that one fine morning he wakes up to the sound of people and machines digging up his beach.

Even Rocky thinks Webber is a three dollar bill based on his appearances on the Johnny Carson Show. Can't get more authoritative than that. But Noah Beery, Jr. after meeting the guy falls for his line. Only James Garner and Gretchen Corbett think he's a phony.

I'm not sure what James Luisi thinks but when Webber starts throwing suspicion toward Garner for the disappearance Lieutenant Chapman is just loving that. To save himself Garner has to solve the murders which of course is what it turns out to be.

Outstanding Rockford Files episode with great performances from the regulars and from Robert Webber.
