The Rockford Files 5.9

  • A perfectly-cast Kathryn Harrold dominates a suspenseful and intelligent 2-hour movie written by David Chase.
  • All of the scenes where Harrold’s are being menaced/threatened are genuinely unnerving.
  • There are two twists in the second hour, concerning the John Pleshette character. Both are excellently thought out, and both allow the characters (specifically Jim) to be smart and get ahead of the script/viewer.
  • James Garner has strong chemistry with his leading lady, and it’s easy to see them as a couple that could go the distance.
