Full movie description "The Rockford Files To Protect and Serve: Part 1":Rockford is hired to find a missing woman, only to discover that she is also being sought by a New York crime family.
Reviews of the The Rockford Files To Protect and Serve: Part 1Ostensibly this is a story about Jim Rockford unwittingly assisting a mob attorney hunt down his estranged fiancé who "knew too much" about the family business. However, at the heart of this tale is a portrait of a severely fractured human being who becomes a 'cop nut' or 'police groupie' in order to try and give meaning to her otherwise empty life. That's what this great episode is REALLY about, and all the other players revolve around the behavior and actions of this demented character.
Armed with a police scanner, an overdose of self-delusion, and a marked lack of scruples, Joyce Van Patten (sister of Dick Van Patten) turns in a movie quality, Emmy award winning performance as she sadly intertwines herself into a high stakes game to the death involving Rockford, the cops, the mafia, and several innocent bystanders, all who pay a price for this woman's unsolicited involvement.
Just as Stuart Margolin so convincingly disappears into the role of Angel Martin, Joyce Van Patten likewise dons the character of Lianne Sweeny, a woman bent on using any means available to link herself with the LAPD in a way that is deeply disturbing. Every move Van Patten makes on screen is Sweeny. Her walk, her talk, her gestures... every nuance paints the picture of this characters fully resigned desperation. The audience moves from feeling interest toward her, to apprehension, to pity, then to anger and revulsion... and in the end back to pity.
I would rate Van Patten's performance equal to, or even better, than Jessica Walter's personification of a similarly disturbed woman in Clint Eastwood's 1971 chiller 'Play Misty for Me'. It would not surprise me in the least if Van Patten's performance is used in acting school as a reference for both ultimate character submersion as well as a splendid example of how to portray mental illness in such a real, and thus startling, manner.
BTW - Garner and Santos turn in great performances as well! We see a side of Becker never before revealed, and the same could be said of Rockford. Enjoy!
