An Old fashioned treasure hunt
15 February 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Shelley Fabares hires James Garner in this episode to find some buried loot hidden back on some place that her husband stashed before he went to prison on unrelated charge. Apparently whatever it is has been laundered and can be used for whatever.

With good reason as we see the husband Robert Ginty was not a trusting man. He gave half the clues to Fabares and half the clues to Richard Schaal who was involved with Fabares. Ginty wasn't going to make it easy, was he?

Add to that two hoods who were Ginty's cellmates and a rapacious local sheriff played by Ramon Bieri also want in.

More I can't say other than this is one Rockford Files episode that is truly laced with irony.
