Movie Details

Richie Brockelman, the intellectual but naive 23-year-old private eye played by Dennis Dugan, was introduced in the 1976 TV movie Richie Brockelman: The Missing 24 Hours. He was revived for a 2-hour episode of James Garner's The Rockford Files, telecast February 24, 1978. Three weeks later, Richie Brockelman: Private Eye premiered on NBC as a five-week replacement for Rockford Files. The Diary of Richie Brockelman is a 2-hour syndicated TV "movie" comprised of highlights from the series and narrated by Dennis Dugan. Richie's case load includes suspected embezzlement, a stolen classic car, industrial espionage, a gambling ring, and a missing accident victim. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
