James Garner and Julie Sommars, The Rockford Files (The Kirkoff Case, 1974)
I inherited a lot from my wonderful dad – freckles from the sun, addiction to coffee, and a great love for cooking, laughing, Westerns, animals, and flower gardening. I also inherited his passion for great television shows. Some of his favorites quickly became my favorites and they are to this day: Gunsmoke, The Rockford Files, The Lone Ranger, The Big Valley, and Bonanza to name a few.
When I first realized his love for James Garner and The Rockford Files (1974–1980), I was caught off guard. I honestly thought my dad only watched movies or shows with cowboys in them! Then it quickly occurred to me – Jim Rockford was a cowboy.
He just didn’t need a hat to get his point across or a horse to chase you down.
