Richie Brockelman: Missing 24 Hours

william cannell davenport stephen

(NBC, 10/27/1976, 90 mins). A neophyte gumshoe with more nerve than know-how joins the big leagues when hired by an amnesia victim who not only cannot explain why she’s being sought by a gunman but who also believes that she is involved in a murder. Brockelman originally was introduced on James Garner’s “The Rockford Files” with the idea of making him Rockford’s sidekick. Instead the character was written into this pilot film and then spun off into a very brief “Richie Brockelman” series in 1977 that never caught on, even after Brockelman made another appearance on “The Rockford Files” and again was tried in series.
