THE ROCKFORD FILES (1974-1980; NBC, USA; theme by Mike Post) A great TV theme; it won a Grammy Award in 1975. James Garner as Rockford had a kind of incredulous comic elan mixed with manliness that no longer seems to exist. Tom Selleck as Magnum P.I. would next assume that mantle (see also that theme song).
