|Open an exciting new file from one of the most celebrated TV detective shows as all 22 Season Five episodes of The Rockford Files come to DVD! James Garner returns in his Primetime Emmy Award-winning role as Jim Rockford, the wisecracking ex-con-turned-private investigator who solves the biggest crimes in Los Angeles from his no-frills mobile home in Malibu. From identity theft to death threats, Rockford uses his experience behind bars to get an inside edge on crooks even the police can't find. Along for the ride this season are such celebrated guest stars as Robert Loggia, Larry Hagman, Rita Moreno and more. Also included is a bonus episode from Season Five, starring Tom Selleck in a role that ultimately became the foundation for the hit TV show Magnum P.I.!|
"...one of those classic 70's cop-shows...a lot of amusing humour in this action/drama series. Vince D'Amato, Hollywood North Report
Editor's NoteThis classic detective series successfully marries comedy with drama to create an Emmy-winning formula. The ever-charming James Garner plays the title character, Jim Rockford. Formerly imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, Rockford now makes a (meager) living as a private eye living in Malibu--in a mobile home. Specializing in reopening closed cases, the aloof ex-con's investigations involve frequent run-ins with thieves, killers, and the police. With an irreverent wit and frequent beatings that separate him from other detective characters of the day, Rockford remains one of TV's most memorable men. This release includes all 22 episodes of the fifth season. Guest stars include Tom Selleck, Ed Harris, John Pleshette, and Harold Gould.
