A 1970s Television Flashback

James Garner, Peter Falk, Jack Klugman

This year Dear Old Hollywood is having a 1970s flashback. Lately I've been catching up with the classic 1970s television shows Quincy M.E. starring Jack Klugman, The Rockford Files starring James Garner, and Columbo starring Peter Falk. All three shows filmed in the Los Angeles area and during this year I'll highlight some of the locations that can be seen in these classic shows. Maybe it's just me, but it's hard to believe that some of these locations appear in episodes that are now over 40 years old. Let's see what has changed and what hasn't in the last four decades.

Stay tuned.

Sounds like fun, Robby. My favorite was McMillan and Wife, but the scenes were filmed in San Fran. It rotated with the Rockford Files amoung other shows on the Sunday Mystery Movie...

Maybe you were recalling "McCloud" or "Columbo" or "Name of the Game." I think NBC threw in "Banacek" eventually. Rockford never rotated, having it's own time slot on (famously) Friday's.
