Jim Rockford

Jim Rockford was played by James Garner in The Rockford Files. He was a struggling private investigator operating in the greater Los Angeles area. Garner was the only actor to appear in every episode of the series.

Each episode began with the image of Rockford’s answering machine, and the opening title sequence was accompanied by someone leaving Rockford a message. As the camera focuses on the telephone, it rings twice and then Rockford’s recorded voice is heard providing the following greeting: “This is Jim Rockford. At the tone, leave your name and message. I’ll get back to you.” [Beep]

Jim Rockford ranked third on America’s Top Sleuths, per Magnum Mania!  It was also ranked 39th in the TV Guide Names Top 50 Shows by CBS.
