  • One of THEE Rockford episodes to watch!

    This as hilarious as it was real. I grew up near where the Get-Rich-Quick James Hampton character inspiration Dared to be Great. Glenn Turner was that guy and I remember the local television news of Turner as his schemes went to hell and then seeing this episode. Excellent satire!

    James Hampton is perfect casting and even looks like Turner. Hampton is always fun and here's a great reason why. I'm sorry w haven't seen more of him. Amazing but the boyish faced Hampton turns 70 in July 2006.

    Best of this edisode is the writing and, thus, Rockford's reaction to all this buffoonery of one guy trying to seduce all with his churh of capitalism. Top rate Cannell writing.
