“The world’s most unlikely detective comes to DVD for the first time ever in all 23 thrilling Season One episodes of The Rockford Files. Emmy winner James Garner stars as the offbeat Jim Rockford, an ex-con-turned-private-investigator who would rather fish than fight, but whose instinct on closed cases is more golden than his classic Pontiac Firebird. From his mobile home in Malibu, this wisecracking private eye takes on the cases of the lost and the dispossessed, chasing down seemingly long-dead clues in the sun-baked streets and seamy alleys of Los Angeles. Including an interview with James Garner himself, this phenomenal DVD set contains 23 TV hours of classic Rockford action and includes such stellar guest stars as Lindsay Wagner, James Woods, Abe Vigoda, Suzanne Somers and Ned Beatty. The Rockford Files are now open and declassified for mystery fans everywhere!”
The Rockford Files Season One is not rated.
A lot of these TV series DVDs are short changed on the bonus features. Fortunately, this one has a great interview with James Garner himself. It runs 8 minutes long and he talks about how he came on board the show, his stunt driving, the humor, his anti-hero character, and his guest stars. It’s a great look back with Rockford himself.
This DVD is a must-have for fans of the series, fans of James Garner, and anyone that loves detective TV series. The mix of humor, action, and drama make it fun television show.
