Rockford was the man! Loved that show.......thanks for posting the article. I enjoyed it, and the clips!
He didn't think much of Federal grand juries either.
One of my favorite shows of all time!
Wonder what ever happened to the Firebird and Rocky's pickup?
Read somewhere that Garner had a piece of the show and he was really pissed that they would sell the damaged Firebirds, have them fixed and then buy them back at full price. Seemed to cut into his profit sharing.
I agree. One of the best shows ever. Who don't love Rockfish?
I think Garner had a creative accounting lawsuit, where he made peanuts from a very successful syndicated show.
Rockford is my favorite show of all time, hands down. I remember they had shows where biker gangs would talk about "pulling a train".
How they got that by the censors I will never know. Just a well written and acted show that never talked down to the audience.
I also like that Garner hated Stern... he saw him for what he was.
That is cool. Fun fact: Garner's partner in that clip is Dennis Dugan, who has partnered and directed most Adam Dandler's movies. He's also the father of a top Phillies prospect, Kelly Dugan:
Sold today at Mecum Auto Auction in Florida
1978 Pontiac Firebird
Featured in the TV Series The Rockford Files
I was flipping channels this afternoon and happened to see the auction. I forget the exact price, but it sold within the range of the estimate.
That newspaper app is pretty cool. I really enjoyed the story about Iran-Contra and Oliver North claiming it was all Israel's idea.
Yeah, The Rockford Files is right there with The Sopranos for best show ever. That David Chase knew how to keep it real.
Great pull. Thanks for sharing.
And the news guy asked why someone would want to keep private information on people?
That's easy. To keep an eye on the darkies of course.
Great show! In subsequent years whenever I'd eat at the Sandcastle in Paradise Cove, the restaurant across from his "trailer," peering in that direction I would give an appreciative nod in homage.
This line cracked me up:
But Jim Rockford, the toughest and most incorruptible P.I. ever to live in a trailer with his dad
Luv me some Gretchen Corbett
loved fucking Rockford growing up. total badass ladies man. chicks could not come close to resisting the camaro and RV on the beach combo
Other than that line, the article was cool. Dad had his own house and did not live in the trailer with Rockfish.
Why turn a lighthearted lookback into a political opinion?
James Garner hated Stern. Called him "the epitome of trailer trash" Gary Garver interviews him at 6:00, and Leno asks him about Stern at 9:30
