Richie Brockelman, Private Eye

By Richard

This semi spin-off of The Rockford Files, had Dennis Dugan star as a young private detective. He was somewhat cut from the same cloth as Jim Rockford, more smart than tough. I think I recall that he drove a '65 Mustang convertible (unrestored even for 1978 - it needed a paint job).

There was a TV movie pilot that was not picked up, then the appearance with Rockford led to six episodes in the summer of 1978, and a final appearance of the character on Rockford in 1979. Dennis Dugan is one of those actors that you would recognize, but not necessarily remember - he has appeared in a lot of movies and TV. He is still acting, but also directs, most notably "Happy Gilmore", and "Saving Silverman."

The theme music (probably Mike Post, who seemed to do all those Stephen J. Cannell shows) was surf-music (Beach Boys style).

As a British viewer of the Rockford Files. I was disappointed that Richie Brockelman wasn't given much of an airing in the UK, but one thing I am sure is that Dennis Dugan wasn't the only actor to play him. Am I correct? [Editor's note: So far as I can tell, he was the only one - and the show wasn't on very long in any case.]
