| Jimbo tries to help Dennis and Peggy's son
"Godfather Knows Best" is another TV movie featuring The Rockford Files cast, this one also from 1996.

Rockford is dismayed to find that his godson, Dennis and Peggy Becker's son Scott (Damian Chapa) is homeless. He rents him a room for a month -- and guess who the building manager is - Angel - and finds him a job at a restaurant. Scott, it turns out, has a few problems, and Dennis is in denial.

Not long after getting the room, Scotty sublets it and moves into a Buddhist colony.

When a famous fashion designer, Elizabetta Fama (Barbara Carrera) is found murdered, Scott comes under suspicion since she apparently helped him out a couple of times. In fact, her father, a Sicilian don, comes to the U.S. to find out who is responsible, even though he's a dying man. Jim, meanwhile, doesn't think that Elizabetta's arrogant husband (Maxwell Caulfield) is exactly blameless.

A bounty hunter is after Scott for a reward and thinks Rockford knows where he is.

Good movie, with Pat Finley on hand again as Dennis' wife, and Joe Santos and Stuart Margolin repeating their roles as Dennis and Angel.

This isn't the best of the Rockford Files films, but again, with wonderful acting, cast, and dialogue, it's delightful to watch.
