• I love the Rockford Files. Love the actor James Garner. Great casting, especially in the early episodes. Jill Clayburgh, Joseph Cotten, Suzanne Somers, Sharon Gless, James Cromwell...etc. The Hallmark channel is now replaying the show. Sadly they're butchering up the episodes by cutting out, my best guess, 6-8 minutes per episode. The already sketchy writing is rendered nonsensical. Shame on Hallmark. That said, the draw was always the great James Garner. And still is.
