Rockford Files On The Set in 1979
By Jim Suva
I recently had the pleasure to talk to Michael Mundy. Michael is a big fan of James Garner and “The Rockford Files”. He was kind enough to share some stories and these pictures from the set of the “The Big Cheese” episode. Michael and his Mom your visiting the set back on 11/5/79, when he took the following pictures.
Notice the picture below of Michael and Rocky’s Truck. On the bluff above you can see two Firebirds and two Police cars.
The Firebird ready for the next scene in front of The Sandcastle.
This last picture was taken by Michael as Jim was entering NBC studios to appearing on “The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson” back in 1978. He was promoting “The Rockford Files”. Jim was rushing in when Michael asked to take a picture. He said: Let me finish this candy bar first. He then was kind enough to pose for this picture.
I would like to thank Michael for sharing these picture with us. If anyone else has a good story about James Garner with pictures, please contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
