On The Rockford Files, James Rockford's father, a retired truck driver named Rocky, was played by actor Noah Beery, Jr.
Here he is playing chess with his son while Pirates shortstop Mario Mendoza looks on.
Jim Rockford: This is Jim Rockford. At the tone leave your name and message, I'll get back to you.
Joseph 'Rocky' Rockford #2: [Beep] Hi sonny, it's Rocky. I got the bill and I've been trying to figure out what everybody owes on LJ's birthday party. Tell me, did you have the pink lady?
I bet Jim Rockford didn't have the pink lady? How do I know?
