Because James Garner's original production company, Cherokee Productions ceased operations after1980, due to Garner's lawsuit with Universal Studios, Garner formed a new production company to produce the 1990's Rockford movies. The name of the new production company was MGB Productions. MGB was a British-made sports coupé, manufactured by MG, fitting in with Mr Garners love of automobile, and also fit in nicely with the names the initials stand for; "M" for Meta Rosenberg, "G" for James Garner,, and "B" for Juanita Bartlett. Meta Rosenberg was his long-time agent/producer, who also directed a few episodes of the original series. Juanita Bartlett was also a long time writer, producer during production of The Rockford Files (1974), who started writing for Garner shows all the way back during Nichols (1971). See more »
In the scene where Garner and Harrold enjoy morning-after glow in his father's cabin, she wistfully notes, "You hear that one bird, the high one? It goes exactly every 17 seconds." It's a 50 second scene with one irrelevant edit, and the bird sings only 4 times (around her observation), at 14-, 12-, and 10-second intervals. See more »
This Rockford come back is the best of the eight. It plays like a motion picture with a beginning, a middle, and an ending. You don't need to have been a Rockford fan or to have seen an episode of the original series to enjoy this teleplay.
