Film Review

Originally aired as a ninety minute presentation, the only print of this episode now available seems to be a version prepared for syndication, which re-edits the material into two one-hour episodes. This means that an extra 25 minutes of footage was needed to fill the new running time...and here's (roughly) how it breaks down:

  • An extra opening and closing theme eats up 90 seconds.


  • There's a brief episode 2 preview at the end of episode 1, lasting maybe a minute.


  • There's a seven-minute recap of episode 1 at the beginning of episode 2.


  • Even with the recap, the closing scene of episode 1 (with Rocky and Jim) is partially repeated (though edited) in the opening moments of episode 2. Another minute gobbled up.


  • Every single time any character goes somewhere by car (which happens a LOT in this episode), we are treated to long, loving stock footage recreations of their journey. Shots are reused and repeated frequently, in order to lengthen the on-screen travel time; it doesn't take too much skill to notice cars going around the same corner again and again. This footage of cars essentially driving in circles takes up a good ten or more minutes of screen time.


  • Stock footage of a plane landing is seen twice. Another minute or so.


  • Any time someone retrieves information via computer? Long, tedious footage of whirring 1970s computers and/or punch cards are shown. Another precious 30 seconds added.


  • When we see the Federal building, we then see pointless stock footage of office workers inside, stretching things for maybe another 15 seconds


  • Most egregiously, three short, completely disposable (and poorly-acted) scenes are ineptly added in. All three scenes are shot so that no character is seen on-screen, even though dialogue is spoken. The first of these scenes has a police lieutenant giving orders to a subordinate (heard over an interoffice talk-box). The second "extra" scene features some particularly terrible voice actors talking about the results of a fire, over much stock footage of ambulances at a night-time crime scene. And the third added scene is -- against all odds -- an even bigger waste of time, with characters in The Federal Buliding discussing Rockford's arrival, again over an intercom. All told, maybe another two minutes here.


That's a grand total of 25 minutes of momentum-destroying footage that makes this two-part episode almost unwatchable. Mind you, there's a good story under all this mess, and some scenes with James Garner and Joseph Cotten that really crackle. (Sharon Gless is very good, too.) But the utterly maddening padding just never lets up; a full quarter of this two-part episode is made up of boring, repetitive, inept, and/or redundant footage, and it just kills any momentum dead.

Why Bernard Kowalski agreed to keep his name on this re-edited farce is beyond me. If ever something called out for an Allen Smithee credit? This two-part hatchet job is it.
