Editorial Reviews

There’s never been another TV detective quite like Jim Rockford (Primetime Emmy® Award winner James Garner), whether he’s cruising in his classic Pontiac Firebird, cracking cases from his Malibu mobile home, or running with — and from —¬ the law. And now, the wry P.I. with the ex-con past is back for more action and clever comebacks in four entertaining movies in this collectible two-disc set. From investigating the children of a wealthy socialite to proving his godson innocent of murder, Rockford plays it cool while chasing after hot criminals on the lam on the sun-drenched streets of Los Angeles. Featuring stellar guest stars Dyan Cannon, Joanna Cassidy, Carmen Argenziano and Morton Downey Jr., it’s murder and mayhem from a true TV icon.

First let me say, this review is not of the company that puts out this dvd or the manner in which the dvd was released. I agree they should have all the movies together in one set and could have made it match the seasons. But, movie and music companies always leave something to be desired in how they release things so I am not gonna write a review of that. I am writing this in regards to the actual made for tv movies. I personally do not understand why everyone is talking so negatively about these movies. My personal opinion is that, anytime you add James Garner to the mix you're gonna get your money's worth. I am a collector of dvds so I am happy/proud to say that I can finally have these to complete the Rockford Collection. Although the actor is older, you don't get the feeling that they tried to underplay his age. They accept it, they broach the subject many times with humor, and all-in-all you get an actor playing his age as well as not losing any of the qualities that made the actor so memorable. there are the trademark one liners, though he does seem a bit more rough around the edges he is still the same old rockford we grew up with in the 70s and in reruns. The saddest part was that Rocky wasn't able to be in them. Anyone who is/was a fan of the show will feel as if they've lost a family member as well. The storylines are fine, and are excellent vehicles for the Rockford character. There are a few reunions (for us as well) as he is joined by Beth and Angel (throughought the course of the movies) too bad Isaac Hayes didn't show up though. That would have made it more complete. I would glady reccomend this set to anyone who has seen the series and loved it as I did. I'd support anything I can with Garner's name on it. He is a fine actor who simply made it look easy and natural.Read more ›

No fan of the wonderful James Garner series would want to be without this first set of movies, made 14 years after the series was canceled. These 90-minute movies are first-rate and have all the spirit and humor of the original series.

They are a follow-up to the original 6 seasons of the TV show. Garner's knee and back problems, which resulted from his insistence on performing most of his own stunts, especially those involving fist fights and car chases, caused him excruciating physical pain, and he opted not to continue with the show, and NBC canceled the program in mid-season.

It took 14 years for the ill will between his production company and the network to subside, during which time a decade-long lawsuit over profits was finally settled in his favor.

So beginning in the mid-1990s eight movies were produced. Its great to see Lt. Becker and Angel again in these movies.

Video quality is very high. The image is clean, colors are true. It looks better than we all saw when broadcast.

Note for fans: Not many actual location sets from 70s shows still exist, but the Sandcastle restaurant is still there on the beach in Malibu (and the food is high quality). Rockford's trailer no longer sits at the end of the parking lot, but its really cool to walk over and stand where it was! As a big Rockford fan, its a treat for me to visit the "set" whenever I'm in Southern California. 28128 Pacific Coast Hwy, Paradise Cove, Malibu, CA.

Here is a brief synopsis of the four movies in this first collection:

"I Still Love L.A." (1994) - Jim is trying to leave California behind him when a series of natural disasters, the L. A. riots and the murder of a wealthy mother make it impossible for him to go. Joanna Cassidy guest stars.

If you are a "true" fan of "The Rockford Files',this twin dvd disc set is a must buy.I own all six seasons of "Rockford' on dvd,and believe it is one of the best programs ever produced for television.This dvd set includes 4 "Rockford" movies produced after the series ended.The dvd transfer for picture and audio quality is first rate.Very crisp,clear and colorful.Many made for tv movies transfered to dvd are not top notch,but this set has an amazing picture and sound quality.Many of the "Rockford Files" original actors are reunited in these movies.Thanks very much Universal for making available this top notch set.I am really looking forward to volumn 2 of this set.Long overdue for true "Rockford" fans.You won't regret purchasing this dvd set.

I've been waiting almost a decade for this! I have my own set, recording on the DVDR, editing out commercials, etc but still didn't perfectly get every commercial cut out or release the pause in time. I don't know why all 7 weren't released together but imagine it's the whole legalities / dick slapping on the table / who has the rights to this and that nonsense. I remember an interview with Mr. Garner after the first movie where he stated that Rockford was one of his favorite characters and alot of himself was in Rockford. He said that, while approached many times with the prospect of reviving the character there had to be the right scripts as he didn't want to tarnish the integrity of the series. He said the timing was right and, at 66, if he didn't do it then he really would have been too old to do it.

I believe the scripts were good and Mr. Garner was incredible as well as the supporting cast. It says alot about Mr. Garner as a person and actor that many of the original supporting cast as well as writers and staff participated, some coming out of retirement to do so.

I have shared my thoughts on many things from music to movies, etc however, if anyone ever listened to a nobody like me I hope this review is taken in the respectful spirit it is intended. While meeting Mr. Garner just to shake his hand and thank him for the many hours growing up watching him, almost in some ways using his character as a role model, buy this and enjoy it for the wit and skill in writing and acting that seems to have been lost in a world of special effects and how many things can be blown up over skill. I anxiously await the remainder of the movies being released, maybe we'll even get the bonus of a movie not released or some great gag reel footage.
