    Synopsis. Rockford probes the apparent suicide of his friend Carol Calcote, a high-fashion supermodel who was found dead on the same night an international jet setter named Consuela Hooper was murdered. With the help of former model Alta Hatch (played by Erin Gray), Jim discovers a link between both deaths and internationally renowned couturier Masters (Rene Auberjonois).

    “With the French Heel Back, Can the Nehru Jacket Be Far Behind?” ties the record previously set by “Sticks and Stones May Break Your Bones, But Waterbury Will Bury You” for Longest Title of a Rockford Files Episode. Both episodes have twelve words in the title. The episode with the second-longest title (ten words) is “Never Send a Boy King to Do a Man’s Job.”
