Rockford Files Answering Machine
Written by Jim Suva
This is my latest addition to my Rockford Files Collection. A replica Dictaphone, remote Ansafone 660. This answering machine is the same model as used on the TV series. I was lucky enough to get this unit from my good friend Pat McKinney. This unit has been repainted to look like Rockford's. The color I believe is royal blue.
The first few season of The Rockford Files, you can see the Dictaphone lettering in white on the answering machine. In the later seasons it looks like the lettering has been painted over and looks like my unit above.
I would also like to thank my sister in law Christine for giving me the black telephone above to complete my display.
40 years ago today The Rockford Files pilot, "Backlash Of The Hunter" premiered on NBC. Happy Anniversary to the Cast and Crew, who made this wonderful TV series.
I also wanted to thank everyone involved, for all your hard work on making such a wonderful TV series and Movies. Because of the Cast and Crew, many people have such happy memories of the show and that time in their lives.
