James Garner tackles his first case as the eponymous Jim Rockford in this TV movie also starring Lindsay Wagner and Bill ‘Will’ Mumy. Of course, The Rockford Files is great for so very many reasons. Apart from providing classic pub quiz questions (Q: What did Jim Rockford call his Dad?) there’s the theme music of course, the fantastic opening titles with those still photographs of him driving around and fishing and the show-opening answer machine gag, although we’re not sure that was in place here. That also provided no end of consternation when one of your diligent TVC teams’ Dads spent hours trying to record that bit from off the telly onto his new and unfeasibly unwieldy answer phone. Was this every Dad’s favourite programme?
