Trivia

Jim Rockford's California Private Investigator License is seen up close in this episode, number 463025, and lists him as "Height: 6' Weight: 195 Age: 37." Interestingly, James Garner's height in real life is 6'2", and at the time this episode was broadcast, he was 46 years old. Since there is no issue date on the license, there is no way of knowing when Jim Rockford was actually age 37. See more »

No one clues him in
8 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Joseph Cotten and Sharon Gless are the guest stars in this expanded 90 minute Rockford Files episode where poor James Garner is left in the dark almost to the end in terms of just what is going on. Cotten and Gless are father and daughter, rich father and rich daughter that is.

Gless is about to be married to a man who never has a word of dialog, but who is described in great detail by Cotten and Gless. Of course their assessments are radically different. Cotten wants his prospective son-in-law investigated as a more than concerned father as the episode reveals.

The very minute Rockford starts poking around though he gets totally stonewalled and given lots of persuasion to be discouraged, the Feds, some gangsters, the Newark Police because Cotten suspects the man originated from Newark, all of them don't help a bit. In fact they're downright unfriendly.

At one point though I didn't see why James McEachin representing the FBI should not have just clued Rockford in as to what he was getting involved in. I won't because you might want to see the episode to find out. I think some will guess, still though it's not a bad Rockford Files show.
