Trivia

The car Odette drives, the Pontiac Trans Am Kammback is a concept car, one1 of only 2 GM produced, and never went into production. It's also notable, as the front fascia was shared with (what would've been) the final Firebird model, which Rockford's drove (as the Firebird Rockford used was upgraded every year, or so). But, since Garner so disliked it's styling, he never opted to update his Firebird past the '78 model. See more »

The oldest of weaknesses
1 October 2014 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

This is part two of a two part episode where James Garner is working a Sting like con on businessman Robert Webber who strong armed The Brockelman business away from Dennis Dugan's father Harold Gould. Webber is nobody's fool so it won't be easy to take him. But Garner has a few schemes organized.

As always Rockford Files stories are that much better when Stuart Margolin is on the scene. Angel pinch hits for one of Rockford's characters and plays an Egyptologist. His qualifications are that he's seen everyone of those old Universal Mummy pictures. Good qualifications as it turns out.

The coup de grace or the final Sting is delivered by Trisha Noble. She plays an official with the Egyptian embassy who gets Webber thinking with his male member. That's the oldest weakness around.

Again a fine episode kudos to the whole cast.
